In three weeks there was not one word, not one tweet with his condolences. It was as if we didn’t exist. I realize in his world California isn’t important, and many of us in this state don’t care about that, but it took about a half-hour Sunday for him to tweet his deep condolences for Texas and assure them he was “watching the situation.”

Did he watch the situation as people ran for their lives from the monster fire that was partially a result of the climate change he denies? He is supposed to be the president of all of the citizens of the United States, not just the ones who support him politically. He is a disgrace to the office of the president.

Healing land and soul

EDITOR: The Nov. 3 paper described efforts being made to install straw run-off protection and grass seed in our beloved parks (“Reviving burned parks’). It also said “park managers know that opportunities to get out in nature are needed more than ever” and “residents are likely in need of nature’s healing powers.”

This presents a special opportunity to heal both land and soul at the same time. This win-win scenario involves inviting public volunteers back into the parks to help install that straw and grass seed as well as assisting with other light cleanup. Hundreds would probably welcome this opportunity to contribute, and the job would get done sooner, perhaps before the heavy rains start.

Let’s get going.
