Letters to the editor - Sept. 29, 2016

The only thing we have to fear is . . .

To the editor;

I am writing in response to your well penned column about being tired of being afraid,

and the recent killings by police. You are absolutely correct in your thought processes, and conclusions in my opinion. 

I would like to bring things a little closer to home now. I too am so tired of trying to not offend people when we have a dialogue about the police shootings and other killings that are plaguing our society right now.

Yes it does mean, you obey and listen to police.




Looking into the future

To the editor;

It is now July 2017.  A year has now passed since universities in certain states began to permit students to bring guns to their classrooms.  

Polls of students  on these campuses show that remarkable changes have occurred. 

The polls agree that the faculty has become much more solicitous of student needs, and much more helpful.  And student scholastic performance has dramatically improved. 

No student has flunked out, nor received a D.  The lowest recorded grade was C+, and only 5% of the students received it .  The average grade has become a B+.  And fully 20% of the students earned an A+.

Without water we get thirsty

To the editor;

In response to the editor’s note: “amusement aside -what is in your water?” Over the next five weeks the Sentinel will publish PG and MoCo water quality information.

These reports will satisfy a water consumer’s decision to drink tap water from their home, drinking fountains located in public parks, schools and elswhere. WSSC or Rockville city water customers will decide to install a home filtration system or purchase certified spring water from a commercial provider.

Regarding the editor’s question, “...what is in your water?” My traveling circus colleagues when on the road drink Italian or similar mineral water brands. We have a RR box car with cases of mineral water. It’s the minerals in the water that keeps me flying high up in the sky or on land wading in the water.

Can you hear me now?

To the editor;

A recent experience with one of the leading sellers of earpieces convinced me that even the most recommended one was subject to less than good service.  

After spending $3,000 for a hearing aid with a three year warranty, I,afterwards was five times hospitalized and twice in rehabs requiring finally a  move to New York from Silver Spring.  

Within less than the year of a three year warranty, the hearing aid no longer functioned  Wen I called the store I was told bluntly that I would have to bring in personally the a earpiece, an impossible task from 200 miles away with my being confined to a wheel chair.  No examination of the hearing aid could be done by mail

Warranties are only as good as the corporation and individual representing the company.
