YOUR LETTERS

Drugs, not cops, are the real problem

First off, I abhor unwarranted police violence. That said, I really get frustrated when the liberal news portrays looting and rioting as protesting and unrest. It is violent activity at best! I disagree with many mandates of Black Lives...

Don't look to retired teachers for savings

New London’s Public School teachers returned to their classrooms earlier this month to welcome back their students after the hardest six months of their careers. Imagine my surprise − and theirs, no doubt − when I saw...

America’s time to say, 'Never again!'

We are being asked to accept a leader who admits to lying and downplaying a clear threat to American lives in order to benefit business and his own political future. This seems unimaginable, but after his admitted sexual grabbing of women was...

Trump flags, parades, bring end to neutral territory

I was saddened when I first heard about the Trump boat parade. (I was not aware that they had been...

Let parents pick the best school for their child

Regarding school choice and residency, “Unfair to go outside the rules to obtain school choice,” (Sept. 14), the solution to...

Together, we can bring hope to fruition

It's said 20/20 represents normal vision. However, 2020 has been anything but a normal year. With the COVID-19 pandemic, racial unrest, high unemployment, political upheaval, and catastrophic weather events, none of us has likely gone unscathed.

Remembering our heroes, now and in the past

July 4th, Independence Day, will always be a special holiday. It has been a couple of months since its celebration. I would love to recognize some of my Patriotic Heroes, specifically a gifted young lady, mature beyond her years, incredibly...

Appreciates varied views

Kudos to Mike Dimauro on his comments regarding high school football. And bravo to The Day for publishing Dan...

The Day is a great example of a free press

I was born in London, England, on July 28, 1945, "between VE Day and VJ Day." World War II looms large in my history. I am glad to be alive at 75. We arrived in the states in 1958. I lived at the Jersey shore during the upheavals...

Football players were selfish in their demands to play, leadership lacking

Who would die for football? Which players on the State Capitol steps thought they did not have a candidate in their family for early death? What was their thinking? Because football is important, they should be entitled to...

Confusing mask requirements

I am sure I am safe when I am home alone and not wearing a mask. Otherwise, the new mask wearing rule that has a $100 fine connected with it has me puzzled. I walk in areas where not many others are. I do not wear a mask unless I see...

Poor photo choice for 9/11 anniversary

The front-page coverage for 9/11 was absolutely disgusting. The Twin Towers should have been there, not the lighthouse on Pequot Avenue, New London. J. Rondeau Montville

LATEST EDITORIALS

Trump's failure to lead has scarred our democracy

Instead of bringing the epidemic under control, the president has let the refusal to wear a mask become a symbol of righteous independence, and...

Finally a final decision on high school football

A lot of sacrifices have been required during this ongoing health crisis. Going without high school tackle football this fall is one more young men...

Enough games, find compromise to pass coronavirus relief bill

It is this kind of cynical game playing that leaves Americans so frustrated with, and disillusioned about, Washington politics.

COLUMNS

Columnist Leonard Pitts Jr

Black Lives Matter. Don't try to change the subject.

So stop asking me about Chicago. I require no instruction from you on how and when to mourn. More to the point, stop using tragedies to duck the...

Columnist Paul Choiniere

Digital world helps 'people peaceably to assemble'

The boat parade was a reminder that even in blue-state Connecticut, which I suspect Biden will carry easily, Trump has a large group of loyal...

Columnist John Kass

Missing the little things voters care about outside the bubble

They're not little to us. The safety of our families isn't some little thing. The kind of history being crammed into our children's heads isn't a...
