Boycott restaurants?

Re: “Progress lost” by Foon Rhee (Editor’s note, Nov. 10):

We really need to start thinking about boycotting the restaurants of these organizations that are demanding the right to stay open and put the rest of us at risk for COVID-19. Apparently, they don’t care if we live or die as long as there are enough remaining patrons for their indoor dining. Truly appalling, they deserve no support from this community.

COVID safety

Wear your damn masks and stop cavorting with people not in your essential COVID bubble.

COVID denial

Re: “Sacramento languishing in COVID limbo” by Foon Rhee (Editor’s note, Nov. 3);

The hoax will never stop unless the people start calling out the lies and stop obeying the unconstitutional lockdowns.

Passing it on

Re: “The Trump stain” by Sasha Abramsky (Feature, Nov. 12):

Truth. Narcissistic, vile, disgusting, liar, racist, misogynist, vengeful just to start and the worst part—his followers are teaching their children to be the same.

Poorly written

Re: “Sacramento rent control collides with green wall of cash” by Scott Thomas Anderson (News, Nov. 4):

The rent board section of the proposal was poorly written. Proponents may want to rethink their preferred mechanism for a future effort. That said, I still voted for it.

Typical Trump

Re: “Stop counting” by Clay Jones (Editorial cartoon, Nov. 4):

Big surprise. No one is expecting him to either win or lose graciously.

Too much power

Re: “Sac County CEO under siege” by Foon Rhee (Editor’s note, Nov. 10):

A totally unacceptable decision to hand over the best part of $180 million to Sheriff [Scott] Jones. Seems quite imprudent for [Nav] Gill to have that much decision-making power. Our county government is still in the dark ages with its good old boy mentality.

Needed attention

Re: “Forced labor trial reveals a disturbing side of human trafficking” by Scott Thomas Anderson (News, Nov. 3):

Glad you wrote about this. It’s been happening forever.
