It appears I may have made an error when writing that Jon Sinton spoke before the Coronado Democratic Club. Mr Sinton has requested a fact check. I believe, several months ago, I read that Mr Sinton was scheduled to speak to the CDC. I do regret the error. Mr Sinton states, “I do not, have not, and will not speak before the Coronado Democratic Club”.
Reading letters of opinion in the Coronado Eagle & Journal, I could not help but notice so many reflect similar thoughts to items I have read in Mr. Sinton’s columns. Mr Sinton writes about Chris Rufo and soon after there are letters referring to Mr Rufo in the same manner. Talking points. Some writers depend on them. One can tell; opinion letters appear in clusters.
As the mad, mad, mad world (cute, silly movie) of election time gets nearer, may all of us who choose to opine do so civilly. It isn’t necessary to use derogatory adjectives to describe those with whom we disagree. It is possible to want the same improvements, but differ on how to achieve them. Speaking positively of those one supports is a better example.
