Letters to the Editor

Letter: Thanks, Paul Jenkins

I have read Paul Jenkins’ columns for years and always appreciated them. His column in last Sunday’s paper expressed my feelings precisely on the responsibility of citizens to get vaccinated and wear masks in public places.

While no one likes the idea of government mandating anything that inhibits our perceived freedoms, like some TSA requirements, wearing seatbelts or driving the speed limit, sometimes it’s necessary if we aren’t responsible enough to do it of our own accord. Thank you.
