Try Trump in court, not in the Senate
Donald Trump should be tried for his crimes by a jury of his peers. An impeachment trial in the U.S. Senate is a political process where guilt or innocence will be determined by party affiliations, not by the strength of the evidence.
Therefore, I strongly suggest that the Democrats in the Senate should present all of their evidence, then choose not to conduct a vote. This would deprive Mr. Trump of celebrating a phony not guilty verdict.
Federal and state prosecutors can then proceed to bring several cases to trial before real impartial juries in the courts.
Great job by county staff with vaccine
At a time when everyone has a lot to complain about, something done really well should be acknowledged. Recently my wife and I got our first vaccine shots provided by Montgomery County Health in Fonda.
We (both over 75) signed up via the county hotline and received a scheduling call within about two weeks. The vaccination operation was extremely well run. The staff were friendly, helpful and thoroughly professional. It was highly organized and fast. Our thanks to all involved for a job very well done.
Stefanik has made herself irrelevant
I have two words for Elise Stefanik – Brian Sicknick. Here’s an idea, Elise. Donate a generous portion of your campaign funds to his widow and children. You’re a big-time family values Republican, right?
Like your one-term president, you are now irrelevant. You’ve had your 15 minutes of shame.
Unlike your colleague Liz Chaney, you have no integrity and no conscience.
Don’t worry. I’m sure you’ll be invited to Mar-a-Lago to reminisce with your daddy Donnie about the fond memories you two share of Jan. 6.
NY could follow Arizona on vaccine
Much has been said about whether or not Americans should accept and take a vaccine developed during the last administration.
Depending on your age and love of life, opting to take the COVID-19 preventative seemed a good idea.
As a New York state winter transplant to Arizona, Madame et moi did the 70-mile-round trip to The State Farm Stadium in Glendale.
Upon arrival, hundreds of well-trained traffic control, medical staff and information takers were on hand guiding us to the appropriate vaccination stations set up in the Cardinals parking lot.
Pertinent questions were asked concerning age, authorization for the shots, name, rank and serial number.
That confirmed, we were given an explanation of what to expect, how the second of the two shots would be administered and when to apply online for that second shot. The shots were administered by competent, courteous individuals. After the injection, we were asked to wait in a designated area fifteen minutes before leaving.
Authorization numbers were erased from our windshield, and we were on our way back home in less than an hour.
There is good evidence that much training and planning has taken place in the last few months by those offering the vaccine.
Arizona should be proud of their state’s health department and the people who maintain it.
