Smoke alarms can save lives

Cabinet Editorials

Last week, nearly a $3 million mansion in Concord, Massachusetts went up in smoke. The cause is reported to be a chimney fire. It quickly engulfed the house and took hours to reduce. A lesson can be learned in the new year, which quickly came and went. Hopefully, it’s a fond memory for ...

The Roaring ‘20’s: high-tech trends for this year

Cabinet Editorials

Remember ’60’s television shows, such as where “Danger, Will Robinson,” became part our syntax as a mild-mannered family and an evil Dr. Smith got “Lost in Space?” Or the Jetson’ flying cars and Astro the dog’s treadmill walks? (The latter is probably true in the 21st century.) ...

Twisting of facts

Cabinet Letters

Whew, just saw my neighbor to talk to a bit, as she passed, on her way home from work, my dogs and me on our road. She, too, is distressed by the Republicans’ twisting of facts, hoping to stay in Trump’s good graces. (Could be the only good thing about Donald John Trump is that he pays ...

Free! Free? Free*

Cabinet Letters

Free, free, free, lots of free stuff being floated around by presidential candidates. Nothing is free. Nothing, someone always must pay. So, let’s look at a Free! education. Does that mean that the professors, faculty and staff, will work and educate for nothing? I don’t think so, although ...

A thoughtful alternative paradigm

Cabinet Letters

My, how things can change on a dime. Trump’s assassination of Qasem Soleimani may just be what gets us into a war with Iran, not to mention a renewed and expanded war in Iraq against perhaps some of the very same Iraqi troops we’ve trained and equipped. Yet another costly war in the Middle ...

A heartfelt thank-you

Cabinet Letters

“It’s a Wonderful Life” here in Wilton – a perfect example of life imitating art. On Dec. 22, people streamed into the Town Hall Theatre carrying food items for the Open Cupboard Pantry, the only admission charge. The pantry is a food source for those families in need who reside in ...

Real and urgent concerns

Cabinet Letters

I am not a huge Elizabeth Warren supporter, but I was disgusted by the front-page editorial disguised as a news article entitled “Dem candidates pushing ‘green jobs’ agendas: Warren wants to spend $1 million per job.” This article takes the total price tag for Warren’s Green New Deal ...

Bernie is a sure loser

There are several Democratic presidential candidates who support Medicare for All who also happen to be viable general election candidates (unlike Bernie Sanders, who has no realistic chance of being elected president). If you actually want to see Medicare for All implemented, vote for ...

Hope the Dems win

Cabinet Letters
