Company for Justice Thomas

Ah, the Republicans. In 1987, Ronald Reagan promptly withdrew Douglas Ginsburg’s Supreme Court nomination merely because he had smoked pot as a young man.

But no such problem for Brett Kavanaugh. Instead, our presidential “p.... grabber in chief” regaled his unhinged base by mocking what Senate Republicans called Kavanaugh’s “credible and compelling” victim of sexual assault, and the Senate refused to deny Kavanaugh a seat on the Supreme Court on the ground that his guilt had not been established beyond all reasonable doubt — the standard obviously required for sending rapists to prison, but hardly adequate to assure that the nation’s highest tribunal remains free of taint.

Oh well, at least Justice Thomas will now have company. And if Trump stays in office long enough, who knows, maybe he can create a majority “p.... grabber” bloc on the Supreme Court — as protection in case he one day has to face his many alleged victims there.

As I read the heartbreaking news about all the children that have been sexually abused through decades and decades by Catholic priests, can anyone explain to me what punishment have they received? Are any of them behind bars like a person in the general public would be? What about the bishops, etc.,…

Look around you: This is what happens when an autocrat becomes president of a democratic republic. Our accidental “king”:

■ Ignores our national/foreign policy experts.

■ Gives aid and cover to another autocrat who murders dissenters, conquers other nations, and covertly…

As a student at a large university, safety is always a priority to me and my family. While it is hard to protect a campus where people have access to come and go, it is not so far fetched to take measures to protect K-12 school systems considering they are smaller and more controlled.

While adding…

No, Mr. Baldree (Public Forum, Feb. 17), “We the People” did not elect the Donald. “You, the 3 million-plus fewer voters than voted for Mrs. Clinton,” put this running national joke and “minority” president in the White House.

And no, Mr. Baldree, after Mrs.…

Want to live a healthy life lasting 500 years — or longer? That possibility, the increasing role of artificial intelligence (e.g., battlefield robotics, self-driving cars, and — yes —supposedly emotionally sensitive companionship dolls), genetic engineering and tissue generation…

We as a community paid tribute to a true American politician — a man who served God, family and community. As the wife of a reservist currently serving his eighth tour, I am extremely grateful to have had Rep. Walter Jones in office.

Known as fighter for the servicemen and women…

As I reflect on my time with Congressman Jones, my thoughts are with his family, which to me also includes his staff. I had the honor of working for Congressman Jones for 14 years and I watched him up close serving the people of the 3rd District.

Although important, what has been shared over the…

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…
