I applaud you for giving space in your publication to those with differing positions regarding the current political state of the country. However, the space taken up by Don Long’s “Leaning Left” column could be used for something positive, instead of the constantly negative tripe he puts forth.
His latest rant in the May 27 edition of the T-A is a clear indication that Mr. Long is suffering from a severe case of TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), but in addition, it proves that Liberalism is a disease. Four months after his party of preference “won” the Executive Office, and both houses of Congress, one would think that he could wax eloquent regarding all the major achievements the Democrats have brought to the country since taking over. But alas, there is absolutely nothing they can brag about, when in fact it has been an unmitigated disaster.
So apparently, all he can do is come up with a pile of fictitious garbage regarding President Trump. Every column this guy produces is similar, and typical of liberals, who seem to want to be as miserable as possible. His party has been in total control for some time now, so it’s high time to accept responsibility for their actions. Please quit wasting space in your otherwise fine publication on anything that Don Long comes up with.
I love Ed Gallo’s column. He always brings a positive message.
TERRY HARDY, Escondido
