WHELAN: Trump Supporter’s Challenge Accepted About ‘Election Fraud’
LETTER from M. A. WEHLAN

Trump Supporter’s Challenge

Accepted About ‘Election Fraud’

To the Editor:

In his recent communication to the readership of the Freeman’s Journal, Mr. Furnari offered to debate anyone on the subject of Mr. Trumps’ 75 million enthusiasts who, he says, were deprived of their right to vote for him. We could also debate his other statements – but first we would have to establish some Rules of Evidence to abide by, as we seem to differ about what evidence is.

For example, I would regard the 36 judicially dismissed law suits alleging election fraud, and the validation of the election results by recounts, as evidence that such allegations had no merit. And I would regard Trump’s taped conversation in which he tried to bribe/coerce the Elections Commissioner in Georgia to “find” a winning number of votes for him, as evidence of Trump’s attempt to commit election fraud on his own behalf. I would regard the U.S. Government Intelligence Reports of Trump’s campaign connections to Russia and the Ukraine as evidence of attempted election fraud.

On the other hand, we would not regard baseless theories propagated on Social Media as evidence.

WHELAN: With Crisis, We See World, And Dump, With Fresh Eyes
LETTER from M.A. WHELAN

With Crisis, We See World,

And Dump, With Fresh Eyes

To the Editor:

Given our current situation, I find even a trip to the Northern Transfer Station – aka The Dump – an exciting occasion. I have looked at it with fresh eyes. And it’s not a pretty sight.

OK, I know it’s a dump, but there are dumps and then there are dumps. This one is really awful.
Fetid piles of trash, papers blowing everywhere, the pathetic plastic fence that is supposed to keep trash from blowing away is broken down and plastic blows over it anyway, into the field and trees below.

Mr. Casella, who has got his customers doing the sorting for him as far as possible, should be ashamed of himself.

Might we have a response?  And, perhaps, a clean-up?
