It has been interesting to read about the decision surrounding the New York Times at the library. It appears the electronic version is less expensive than the paper copy. Perhaps the library should stop the paper copy and use only the e version. Unfortunately, there is a political element involved in this, when there doesn’t need to be. Mr. (Scott) Carnahan put out the big lie that the New York Times is “fake news.” What I’ve noticed by reading newspapers for more than 60 years, is that when they make a mistake they put out a correction. I’ve also noted that when people try to support many of the statements made by the president, they end up lying too. When the president constantly lies, one should be careful in defending him.

I’m going to assume that Mr. Carnahan thinks he is a Christian. It appears that some people don’t understand that repeating a lie from the president or any source means they have lied as well. I know he is trying to destroy the credibility of the press, and it is working for the sycophants who follow him. While demagogues and dictators can burn the newspapers they don’t like, our president can only do this verbally, as has Mr. Carnahan and the “ever Trumpers.” I leave with a quote from David Brinkley, “Numerous politicians have seized absolute power and muzzled the press. Never in history has the press seized absolute power and muzzled the politicians.”

There's something happening here

What it is ain't exactly clear

There's a man with a gun over there

Telling me I got to beware

I think it's time we stop, children, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

There's battle lines being drawn

Nobody's right if everybody's wrong

Young people speaking their minds

Getting so much resistance from behind

It's time we stop, hey, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

What a field-day for the heat

A thousand people in the street

Singing songs and carrying signs

Mostly say, hooray for our side

It's s time we stop, hey, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

Paranoia strikes deep

Into your life it will creep

It starts when you're always afraid

You step out of line, the man come and take you away

We better stop, hey, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

Stop, hey, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

Stop, now, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

Stop, children, what's that sound

Everybody look what's going down

Excellent.....one would also like to see if Mr. Carnahans residence in Floral City is where he spends each night. Or...is that a Fake Residence? One would also like to know what Mr. Kitchens annual property tax payment of $361 contributes to funding our county library.
