Letters to the Editor for Monday, May 6

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionStop the slander and get more informedToo often, we fire words with reckless intent to smear and demean.A recent writer’s brash claim, “Many Americans are surrendering their values” supporting a president whose “motives are driven by narcissism” trashes both our president and voting citizens exercising their right.Is the writer privy to the president’s motives, or uttering the mantras of a hostile media?Continuing to “illustrate” surrender of “values,” the “horrified” writer asserts, with nary a shred of evidence, that appointing William Barr as attorney general was a “sinister plot” by Trump to gain a protector in the position of the office. She then declares, in an unclear and unsubstantiated statement, “he has forever tainted and dishonored the office of United States Attorney General.”We bear the responsibility to be informed. Though we no longer rely on the media to report facts, we have easy access to information. Bill Barr’s Memorandum of 8 June 2018 on Mueller’s “Obstruction” Theory addressed to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is online. You will find more than 18 pages of articulate, carefully measured and weighed reasoning, referencing many legal cases. Kids get a taste of reality about vapingHere’s a lesson for you.One of my daughter’s friends, a teacher, stopped by and told me about a recent lesson she taught at one of the local middle schools.She started her lesson by saying to her 13-year-old students, “Today, we are going to make milkshakes, and we are going to use some of the same ingredients that are used in making e-cigarettes. Let’s start with blueberries. Flavor is important to both concoctions. Next, a little formaldehyde. It’s used to manufacture the colorless, gaseous stuff that makes the smoke in e-pens. Yes, it’s used in fertilizers and embalming fluids, but only large amounts are harmful.Next is the e-liquid. That’s the propellant used to get the smoke into the lungs. It causes cancer in rats and heart disease in humans, but only if used to excess. How about a little arsenic? It’s used in rat poison, but it keeps the ingredients in vape machines free of rodents in stores. Then, a little cyanide. It’s only dangerous in large amounts, but it, too, adds flavor to the smoke inhaled. In keeping with that flavor, let’s add a little yogurt. Our milkshake is complete and just as tasty as those trendy little e-pens. Now, who wants to try my milkshake?”  No hands went up, but a great discussion took place on whether to vape or not to vape.Allen R.

He has served under a previous president. His reports to Congress are patient, intelligent, “just the facts” responses to even the most hostile and rude congressional members.Let us all determine to stop the slander and false accusations that ignite hostility.An informed citizenry engaging in civil discussion is one of the greatest blessings in our democratic republic and we ought to carefully safeguard it.Joanne DarlingPattersonvillelast_img read more

first_imgThe property sold for a bargain five-digit sum in Kangaroo Point, which is across the Story Bridge from the Brisbane CBD.IN AN unbelievable stroke of good luck for a Brisbane buyer, an inner-city property has sold for just five digits five minutes from the CBD.Do not adjust your screen: The single-bed, single-bath studio in Kangaroo Point sold for an unheard-of $98,500 last month after the overseas-based seller decided he wanted it sold as soon as possible.Harcourts Solutions agent Sameer Ellagta said the property landed three solid offers almost immediately after the owner dropped the pricetag for 703/188 Shafston Avenue, Kangaroo Point. Not a bad bathroom for a studio flat. Mr Ellagta said studio apartments in the complex normally fetched around over $20-30,000 more in the current climate.“Normally in that complex the price $120,000 to $130,000 is usual, but of course that depends on the unit, the circumstances of the seller and the price they are willing to let it go for.” The body corporate fees of around $2,780 a year include electricity and high speed internet.“Shafston College is integrated in the building on levels 1 to 3 as well as their main campus directly next door,” according to the listing, with the studio resident also having access to the recreational lounge, well-equipped indoor and outdoor gym and on-site laundry, cafe and office services.As if to demonstrate just how lucky the buyer was to nab that deal, a similar apartment in the building sold for $135,000 just 10 days later. FOLLOW SOPHIE FOSTER ON FACEBOOK The 21 sqm studio was sold fully furnished so it could be lived in or rented out right away. It was fetching $275 a week or just over $1000 a month.Realestate.com.au’s repayments calculator estimated that a property price of $98,500 would mean a deposit of just $19,700 and with an interest rate of 3.69 per cent over 30 year term would mean a monthly mortgage cost of $362.
