Mineola, L.I.: However Michael D’Antonio’s admonitory op-ed a couple of resurgent Trump in 2024 (“Be afraid: Trump 2024 is a real threat to America,” Nov. 20), the Mar-a-Lago miscreant’s egocentrism and relentless concentrate on the Massive Lie concerning the 2020 election will show to be his undoing.

The outcomes of the 2022 midterm contests are a transparent indicator that the Donald is a goner.

Regardless of his beginnings as an acolyte of the previous president, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis would make a formidable GOP presidential nominee in 2024. Along with being uber-competent, politically astute and intellectually gifted, Mr. DeSantis, if elected, could be the primary Italian-American president of the US.

The one produces aspiration; the opposite ambition, which is the way in which during which a vulgar man aspires.” Rosario A. Iaconis

Wyckoff, N.J.: Re “Hunting Hunter” (editorial, Nov. 20): Each staunch Democrat I do know believes that if Hunter Biden broke the regulation, he ought to be prosecuted.

Brentwood, L.I.: The wording on the photograph on web page 6 of the Nov. 16 paper (“Trump runs again, seeking redemption”) clearly exhibits how a lot the Every day Information doesn’t like Donald Trump. It states that he was “twice impeached” however makes no point out that the Senate discovered him not responsible. The article itself was straight and balanced. It appears that evidently recently, the so-called editors, or whoever it’s that writes captions, will not be studying the articles themselves after which writing a caption that follows the theme of the article. I do miss the Every day Information I began studying so a few years in the past. Truthful and balanced would go a great distance. W.J. Van Sickle

Nevertheless, it’s the rat infestation within the Home of Representatives in Congress that I’m apprehensive about! There, 218 Rat-publicans have taken management. Although no new Home speaker is but chosen, rumor says Mad Marge Greene will pull their strings. We pray (and vote) that Whacked-Head Walker doesn’t get that Georgia Senate seat, made worse now that previous, bigly Chief MAGA Rat is attempting for the White Home once more! It is going to be a tough two years for us earlier than we will rid Congress of this pandemic plague of Rats! Kevin Hanley

Metuchen, N.J.: I’m wondering if the Frank Rossi whom J.T.

Flushing: Re “A safer, fairer Manhattan is within our reach” (op-ed, Nov. 18): Justice that’s truthful is honorable. With out truthful justice, there might be no honor.

That parity of esteem builds long-term fairness into communities.

One presumes which means that West will register to vote one among nowadays. Preserve smiling! Scott Baker
