LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Let’s use common sense during this pandemic

May 1 was May Day, the major holiday of that great paradise, the now-defunct Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. I’m sure that Comrade Josef Stalin is looking up in great admiration at his acolytes, including Gretchen Whitmer.

    We don’t like being locked down. It’s surprising that Gretchen doesn’t ban automobiles as well, since they kill tens of thousands every year. And then there’s guns. Oh, that’s right — there is an ongoing battle to ban them.

    Let’s use some common sense during this pandemic. Cleanliness, social distancing and individual awareness of your surroundings are better tools than extreme controls by leftist politicians.
