Start Making A Difference By Casting Your Vote, LadiesTo The Reader’s Forum: Over the years I haven’t always agreed with Norman Carlson, but I have to agree with your comments in the Readers’ Forum Thursday, April 15, 2021, “Hiding from the truth while having it both ways.” Yes, we (the United States) are finally facing many of our faults … racism, police reform, not educating our children and ourselves about our true history, the list goes on and on!
