Letter: Tiptoeing into socialism

Listening to a “60 Minutes” interview with Neil Kashkari, Federal Reserve Bank president for Minneapolis, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. Kashkari ran for Governor of California as a Republican in 2014. He lost. But in his pronouncements during the “60 Minutes” interview, he sounded more like an economic czar for a socialist country. […]

Letter: A happy surprise

In these times of bad news, any kind of good news is welcome. Imagine my surprise and delight when I discovered a front-page article in the Wednesday, March 25, edition of The Davis Enterprise about a little-known story about basketball. McPherson, Kan., is my hometown and to read about the historical facts of the Globe […]

Letter: Pandemic limerick

365体育投注A virus, not lightning or thunder, Has scattered our world asunder, Without more detection, Our first choice selection, Is six feet apart (versus under). John Whitehead Davis

Letter: Thanks for COVID-19 Response

I would like to thank the Davis Food Co-op for its response to the COVID-19 crisis. I shopped there today, March 27th, during the 10-Noon block reserved for vulnerable folks like me. I saw a couple of pregnant women and many fellow grayhairs. Two staff met me at the door offering gloves and wipes. The […]

Letter: Response to coronavirus

Two major lessons emerge from how American governments have responded to the spread of the coronavirus — one negative, one positive. The negative is the failure of the national government in the person of President Trump to respond immediately, decisively and intelligently with specific solutions. The positive is the leadership from below — how quickly […]

Letter: Fight racism and get a good meal

I write as an alert was posted on Nextdoor that we may lose a longtime restaurant in the community: “Ding How has just 2 weeks.” Consider placing a carry-out order at Ding How … or other Chinese restaurants in town. Hot food (and food ingestion in general) is thought safe from virus contagion by the FDA. Surfaces […]

Letter: Hometown homeless

365体育投注For the last year or so a homeless encampment has appeared along F Street, north of Covell Boulevard. There seem to be approximately 10 tents with unknown numbers of people living there. They have been there through the winter cold and rains in what must be squalid conditions. And now with COVID-19 they cannot stay […]

Letter: Remember nonprofits in stimulus bill

Include the following in the COVID-19 economic stimulus bill: * Expressly provide charitable nonprofits with $60 billion in any emergency funding. The charitable sector needs an immediate infusion of $60 billion and a mechanism must be constructed for a rapid infusion of cash to those organizations serving immediate needs in communities facing lost and declining revenue […]

Letter: A word of thanks

I wanted to take a moment to express so much appreciation for the many health care workers who are continuing to work and care for our community members, as they are primarily on the front line of exposure due this COVID-19 pandemic. This extends to the local veterinarians using great precautions to provide needed medical […]

Letter: Get the basics right

365体育投注Dan Walters’ March 22 column, “Dumbing down teachers’ tests” is absolutely correct. That test is about basic skills; it does not test teachers’ skills/knowledge of advanced calculus, biochemistry or analysis of literature. It does not test the teachers’ ability to teach. We have all had wonderful teachers who not only know the subject matter, but […]

Letter: Call it by its name

365体育投注President Trump in his press conference used the term “Chinese virus” to refer to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The president may have legitimate concerns about how the virus spread throughout the world, might have a certain feeling about the Chinese government, the commercial trade with China, or anything else. There is no virus nationality. There is […]

Letter: Positive gratitude

UC Davis Professor Robert Emmons wrote that “gratitude” incorporates “an awareness that nothing can be taken for granted.” Fred Rogers said, “Look for the helpers.” My mother said, “Wash your hands.” All three were right. As we approach week two of our collective new reality, my mind keeps turning back to what Professor Emmons said […]

Letter: Silver linings

365体育投注Good news! At least now we can try “healthcare for all” before the election, and see what it really costs. David Kutz Davis

Letter: Is my Davis Enterprise safe to read?

By “my Davis Enterprise” I mean the hard copy paper newspaper that arrives with some regularity on my driveway every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. By “safe,” I mean of course, not contaminated with the Covid-19 virus. I love my newspaper. I have been a subscriber since I arrived here in 1990. Reading the paper online […]
