The popular vote &truth
Editor: After reading another Anti-Trump rant in the opinion section I have concluded that there should just be a form letter for writers to check, because they are all the same.
Making personal attacks on the person, the style, looks, etc., while attempting to refute real truths emerging as a result of his election.
The writer concludes, as do so many anti-Trumpers, that his position is affirmed by the popular vote discrepancy in Hillary’s favor.
If “Target Smart” (Democrat data firm) is correct, 50 million new voters had been rounded up to register since 2008, resulting in a total of 200 million registered voters for the 2016 election. But Hillary led the popular vote by just 2.87 million, a bit over 1 percent of registered voters (one in 100 people), and most of these in major cities populated by new citizens, college kids, one-sided ethnics and so on.
I doubt if many of the readers of this column had to be goaded into registering, so I am wondering just how many of Hillary’s voters really knew much, cared much, or had even assimilated much into United States politics?
Sister Edna courageous
Editor: Thank you for the article about Sister Enda.
I was a student at San Jose Catholic in 1961 and 1962, and remember her well. Later, my grandmother, who was active in the church, became good friends with Msgr. Danaher and the sisters. We saw them a lot when we visited. She still asks me about my sisters and brother.
It struck me some years ago how very young Sister Enda and her fellow sisters were when they came. It took tremendous courage to take the leap of faith to leave their families, friends and country to come across the ocean to an unknown place, but they answered the call and came.
Thank you, Sister, from all of us whose lives you have enriched. We are all blessed to know you.
