Barron Trump cartoon inappropriate

Loading…

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

I can't believe the Reflector would print the cartoon of Barron Trump writing the anonymous New York Times op ed ostensibly written by someone who hates his dad.

Are you folks not aware of the mass murders and suicides due to bullying going on in our schools?

Young people are very impressionable. They believe just about everything they see and hear from adults who are in positions of authority. In fact these issues have been written about, shown on TV and discussed on Facebook and everywhere else all the time lately.

Freedom of the press does not mean editors and publishers can print any thing that sells even if they happen to have a monopoly in the area where their paper is printed

When freedom of the press goes or is tampered with, as it was in this case, it is on its way out the door and along with it all our freedoms as well. History has demonstrated that is how just about how every dictatorship takes over.

I know you are aware of what I have just written. And I'm sure many adults found the cartoon rather funny. That's no excuse. Apologies are unnecessary as well.

Maybe its high time you wrote an editorial about the unequivocal amazing negotiations Baron's dad has accomplished in order to bring about lasting peace to the entire world. It didn't surprise me, his ex-wives or anyone else when they see what wonderful children he has raised.

Pitt County Schools is moving forward with efforts to make local schools more secure after introducing measures in May 2018. A letter was sent out Feb. 13 from Superintendent Ethan Lenker to parents to inform them of the progress made.

I have read the letter and there are 12 security additions…

The construction of an apartment complex will be possible thanks to a rezoning of Fire Tower Road. That sounds good on the surface, and it has many benefits, but it ignores the long-term issues — traffic and crowding.

Greenville city planning has more than likely pondered these issues,…

I urge Rep. G.K. Butterfield to vote no on bill H53/S52. This bill has already been presented to the legislature (H575) in 2017. It was not passed then and should not be passed now. It is obviously a method to curtail the rights of people to their reproductive health.

Reps. McElraft, Turner and…

Well folks I was going to focus my writing on just art matters. However, after listening again to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s street sweeper speech I’m inclined to combine the two.

Firstly if you have never heard it, just search MLK street sweeper and be prepared to be uplifted and…

I read with interest Ralph Tyson’s letter (Republicanism betrays the people, Feb. 7). He stresses “We the People.” Correct, and we the people elected Donald Trump — get over it!

He goes on to say Republicans are not constitutionalists — why don’t you…

Just a few short years ago our community came together to help fund the addition of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Vidant Hospital due to the large number of low birth weight babies being born in our region. This state-of-the-art facility helps these tiny persons in their struggle for life…

As I visit metropolitan areas to our west, there is clear evidence that many communities have effectively converged on their priorities in very visible ways. And when there is convergence, it seems as if progress is inescapable. I have grandchildren now, and they have experienced numerous…

Kudos to Holly Garriott, executive director for Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge, and to ECU professor of music, Carroll V. Dashiell Jr., for coordinating the amazing African American Music Series.

Concerts take place at Emerge Gallery on Evans Street on the second Friday of the month. If you…

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…
