Changing his tone
I commend columnist George Worthy on last week’s piece, “We’re All in This Together” (Nov. 25). My one criticism is that it is overly long; the entire first column filled with the author’s perennial whining about politicians and their crimes could have simply been left out.
The rest of the piece commends the ways so many of us, elected and unelected, work together for the common good, i.e. protecting individuals and communities from the spread of Covid-19. I applaud Mr. Worthy for changing his tone since his May 27 column dismissing its seriousness, and recognizing the need for scientifically based precautions against spread of this deadly disease.
Finger-pointing and blaming, especially for totally unrelated matters, distract from the work of bringing us together to find solutions to the real problems at hand. The last three columns of his Nov. 25 piece are worthy to be shared as inspiration to all. I thank its author for his good work in acknowledging how much good work is being done by so many.
