‘‘‘A wave is a hug from a far,’ shouted out by our daily ‘waver’ who sits along N. LeRoy Street at Dauner waving to people in vehicles. He makes our day!”

NICE ARTICLE ON ways to keep your immune system strong, except you forgot one critical way to boost your immune system, which is to be vaccinated. Vaccines are the ultimate way to boost your immune system against a particular disease.

SEEING ALL THE people still wearing masks, I never realized germaphobia was such a pervasive mental disorder.

DID SOME FACT-checking and discovered there were 19 riots or civil disorders during Obama’s presidency. Those were during the years of 2009 to 2016. Writers and contributors need to check their facts before having them published. Otherwise, it is just fake news. Too much of that nowadays.

RESPONSIBILITY IS LACKING in our society. Everyone is ultimately responsible for their own successes, actions and failures.

TRUMP HAS ORDERED the government to use skill over degree in hiring. What a great idea. Hiring people to do a job instead of thinking about it. Sounds like something a businessman would do.

***

YOU THINK IT’S funny how so many people attack and berate Democrats then excuse Republicans doing the same things? How about naming one?

WE NOW WILL be wearing masks for a very long time because of Trump’s inability to take responsibility for pressuring the country to open. And if you think the government can’t force you to wear one, try running around naked.

***

I WANT TO believe that true patriotic Republicans, Democrats and Independents, all vote for whom they believe will be part of solutions. Those who call the other party supporters’ names prefer to contribute to social problems, which is dividing us.

***

PEACEFUL PROTESTS ARE fine. If there is destruction or violence, let the responsible parties serve their time or pay their fines by cleaning up and repairing the results of their actions, not dismiss accountability.

MY EX-FATHER-in-law passed away on the day before Father’s Day. He was buried on the day after Father’s Day. It was his 80th birthday. He’s a statistic now. Cause of death? COVID-19. Please wear a mask, social distance and keep everyone safe.

‘DEMOCRATS ARE SOCIALISTS. They want to destroy this country.’ Wrong. They are citizens who vote. The previous quotes are from extremists who are destroying this country.

***

TO THE HOT-LINER complaining about traffic on Owen Road, I think more roundabouts are needed. That may also be the solution for traffic coming off U.S. 23.
