Honor statesmen, not celebrities

FI-Letter-to-the-EditorTo the Editor

We’re the greatest country, for how much longer?

While driving by Town Hall, I thought how Greenwich should be a role model. It was 5:30 p.m. but there was Peter Tesei at the selectman’s office window. Past selectmen would have been working on other businesses, not Peter. His sincerely dedicated efforts are a spark of what’s needed for our country. America has few sincere, practical leaders and it’s in bad shape.

Politicians at the Greenwich Point Old Barn groundbreaking made a hasty withdrawal before the reception. I wonder why so few talk to us. Perhaps hearing common opinion would be bad for special interests and the media who are the greatest causes for what’s happening to our nation and the world.

I really wonder what’s to happen if there are not two really good individuals running for president in 2016. What’s going to happen? Hillary Clinton and Chris Christie would do great political jousting. Yet the media has already convicted Christie, even with no evidence of the Washington Bridge Gate-Traffic Fiasco.

Letterman turns on Chris Christie in his show, having great fun with putting him down. For once say, “Hey let’s let this lie. We need him, especially with his Sandy Hurricane record. He deserves a break. He was there for his people, working well with Obama. He will work well to solve problems with Democrats on Capitol Hill.”

Letterman should pick on some of these spoiled movie icons who are literally worshipped by our youth. He should lecture them on helping build up our country and humanity in all ways. Like a Hunger Games star who’s been rude to Letterman, stating that it’s part of her nature. Her talent and success make it OK? No, she should be lectured to see the common needs.

Jennifer Lawrence should be shamed, along with the royal celebrity elite. They set bad examples for our youth. We need to encouraging celebrities to help start changes and correct our self-centered society. They could be doing so much good but they aren’t.

Give sincere statesmen a chance, even with Hoboken.
