Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor: My thanks to Charles Landis of Onancock for his response in the Dec. 25 issue of the ES Post on the subject of the Electoral College (EC). I would only point out that the sole purpose of the EC is to select the best persons for the offices...
Dear Editor: We are bombarded everyday by the grim numbers regarding Covid. I do not think they are presented in the proper context. The state numbers should be presented in terms of cases per thousand of population, hospitalizations per thousand and deaths per thousand. Virginia has many more cases than...
Dear Editor: In less than a month, the grifter/carnival barker who currently occupies the Oval Office will be leaving. What he has done since losing the free and fair election in November (supported as such by his once-favorite lapdog Bill Barr) is to show that he (Trump) is the true enemy...
Dear Editor: I have always been taught when you know better, you should do better. This lesson also applies to history. The 1,000s of (Confederate) memorials across the United States were the result of efforts by White Southerners and a few Northerners with clear political objectives. The South was fighting to...
Dear Editor: In response to the last few weeks of political views of Republicans and Democrats, on and on about Nixon, Kennedy, Johnson, and Clinton. They are all guilty of one thing or another. They all had fingers in the sticky pie of making the other party look like the ones...
Dear Editor: I hope it will be interesting to some folks of the mainland and Chincoteague to know that not all of the filming of “Misty of Chincoteague” was done on Chincoteague. A lot of the home scenes, for whatever reason, were filmed on Folly Creek, down Custis Neck, back...
Dear Editor: Bright and joyful is the Christmas celebration on Hall Street in Onancock. There is no doubt in anyone’s mind how the residents on that street feel about the holiday. Their display of wonderland decorations draw you into a moment of peace and happiness. It’s good to know with all...
Dear Editor: Kudos to Giovanni Rosanova and Arthur Leonard for stating the obvious to the Accomack School Board, our children need to be playing sports!! Children need physical education as much as academic education. Sports motivates the individual student and team sports promotes teamwork whether on the field or in the...
Dear Editor: This is to add another accolade for Bob Bloxom on the event of his passing. I knew Bob through his work in the General Assembly in my ten years as Chancellor of the Virginia Community College System. I saw Bob in many legislative circumstances. He was always kind, concerned,...
Dear Editor: This responds to the op-ed of Brian Bloedel, Eastern Shore Post. Dec. 18, 2020, “Electoral College is Broken.” Word count policy of ES Post does not permit full response to Mr. Bloedel’s misunderstanding of founders intent, the Constitution, and the Electoral College. However, with penchant for pithiness, I suggest...
