Just, please, admit you were wrong?

May 21, 2020

To the editor:
Denise Connolly's Letter “Never Pleased,” recalls to me Trump's behavioral template. If someone challenges Trump on his fake facts, or reminds him of something he has said before which he now contradicts, he gets aggressive, nasty and personal.
I pointed out that Mrs. Connolly had her facts wrong. Rather than defend her statements which were pure wish fulfillment, she pointed out in her letter what a loser I am. What does that have to do with the price of masks in China?
Furthermore, the accusation that I think “all” people who vote for Trump are stupid and racist, is absurd. I have some very intelligent friends who supported him. And some of them are not even pure white, whatever that means.
They agreed with his policies on Israel and thought he was good for the economy. They liked the way he dealt with “Rocket Man” even though that love affair led to nothing.
No-one is perfect and even someone like me, dumb enough to have run for Town Supervisor, and unlucky enough to own a restaurant in a pandemic, can be right some of the time.
And, in this case, Mrs. Connolly, I was spot on. Just please, be intelligent enough to admit it when you are wrong.
