Letters to the Editor

Whom to choose?

Americans today are anxious, disappointed, frustrated and angry — and here we are again, faced with another “Sophie’s Choice.” It’s either the loud-mouthed, arrogant, racist, sexist, schoolyard bully who’s in love with the sound of his own voice or the privileged, ethically challenged, bought-and-paid-for, herstory-making, good-old-boy/gal.

Not voting is just plain stupid and irresponsible. How do we decide between two seriously distasteful alternatives? The same way that humans have done it for thousands of years — choosing the lesser of the evils. And you make that determination using your brain and not your gut; your intelligence and not your hormones.

However you make that choice, you’ll get what you deserve.
