While COVID-19 deaths
soar, Trump has no plan

The nation has been clamoring for months for a central approach. President Trump refuses to use his powers to coordinate resources. This virus knows no boundaries. If one state has tight control and other doesn’t, it is just a matter of time before it spreads to parts once deemed to be safe.

This president pits one state against another. In the beginning, states were bidding against each other for protective gear. At the moment, the labs are overwhelmed. But not all of them. The federal government could coordinate big and small labs from Alaska to Florida, and speed up results. But nope.

Any day I expect this president to proclaim the virus fake news, that it never existed and was only promoted by mainstream liberal media, as our precious loved ones lose their lives.

Demolishing trestle was
waste of taxpayer dollars

Re: “Letters: Latest county tax hike deserves a ‘no’ vote” (Letters to the editor, July 26)

I might take your tax recommendation seriously, Pierluigi Oliverio, if I were convinced you cared about how tax dollars are spent.

Some seven years ago, the Willow Glen Trestle could have been converted to a pedestrian bridge for about $750,000; you spent $1 million in taxpayer dollars to purchase a generic bridge, $250,000 more than for a restoration. Add to that the cost of demolishing the historic trestle, up to $500,000, or more.

Why was the destruction of the Willow Glen Trestle so important to you that you chose the most expensive way to use our tax dollars to provide a pedestrian bridge over the Los Gatos Creek? Why Mr. Oliverio?

Trump’s no-show for
Lewis was telling sign

Forget about his unapologetic racism, misogyny, chronic lying, ignorance and disrespect for the rule of law, we now know all anyone will ever need to know about our 45th president.

As Democratic U.S. Rep. John Lewis lies in state at the U.S. Capitol rotunda, being rightfully honored for a life spent walking the walk of civil rights, Black Lives Matter, and risking his life to make America live up to its promise of all men being created equal, notably absent from the ceremonies was President Donald Trump. Please vote in November.

It’s time to shut down
arrogant SJ salon owner

Re: “SJ salon never shut down in spite of county order” (Mercury News, B1, July 23)

I found it incredulous that a business owner in this “enlightened” community would be so blatant about flaunting the health restrictions at this critical time.

Everyone is asked to sacrifice for the well-being of their neighbors, their grandparents and their community to try and stop the spread of this deadly virus. Mr. Griffiths brags about not complying as if it is his right to do so. Since when is it admirable to be self-serving and uncaring of others?

Since when is it a good idea to not require your customers to wear a mask? He arrogantly flaunts all health recommendations and allows his employee to work on a client indoors, with neither wearing masks. He challenges the authorities by daring them to punish him and defiantly sneaks his customers in the back door while dishonestly boarding up the front door.

Let’s get real and close him up for good.

Rage, Bob Woodwards new book, features letters between Trump and Kim Jong Un

Veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward’s new book about President Donald Trump is titled “Rage” and will be released Sept. 15, less than two months before Election Day, according to a listing on Amazon.com.

Publisher Simon & Schuster says the forthcoming book follows “Trump’s moves as he faces a global pandemic, economic disaster and racial unrest.” It says Woodward conducted a series of exclusive interviews with the president.

The Amazon listing also notes that Woodward obtained 25 personal letters between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, including one in which Kim describes their bond as something out of a “fantasy film.”

Woodward’s first book about the Trump presidency, “Fear,” was published in 2018 and went to No. 1 on The New York Times’ nonfiction bestseller list. Simon & Schuster was the publisher of two books this year that were harshly critical of Trump: “The Room Where It Happened,” by former national security adviser John Bolton, and “Too Much and Never Enough,” by Trump’s niece Mary Trump.
