In response to the comment by Rick Melen in his article in the March 9 issue, I commend him for showing The New York Times crossword puzzle as something good in their paper. However, his insinuation that what is going on in our country now is the same after Pearl Harbor is totally unfair and wrong to the brave men and women who gave their sweat, blood and lives in that war. I lived during that time. You should be ashamed to compare the two.

Get over it. Donald J. Trump is your president for at least the next four years. Give him a chance—you may even end up quoting his motto: “MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”
