Hello, I love the article "Small Town Barbecue at its Finest
"[Food, June 4] because I am always looking for good new places to eat BBQ close to where I live. I have always eaten at one place and am so excited to give news ones a try. I love how these places seems delicious and also how some have a place for the kids to play. Thank you for the recommendations and help; I am so excited!
"Republicans Vow to 'Re-Fund the Police' by Seizing Local Control
“State grabs power to dictate local public safety budgets." [News, June 4]
This headline would have been unthinkable just a decade ago. The party formerly known as the Republican Party is a fascistic parody of the exact thing they spent a lifetime bemoaning and accusing the left of doing. So much for conservative use of governmental power and funds!
These barbaric contrarians have no agenda other than to try and punish citizens who value Black lives, education, community, the arts, cultural capital, and equal rights for women and minorities. They don't care how much it costs if they think it will make the left mad or keep them away from the polls.
The Republican platform is so unpopular they can't win elections any way other than by disenfranchising their opponents' voters. They've apparently decided the ends justify the means. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. No one likes a cheater. Maybe try getting a better platform, you bullies.
