An appreciation for good journalism

I am appreciating your newspaper.

Shawn Vestal’s articles are always good, but his well-researched article on “Triple-digit heat shows climate emergency is here” (Aug. 11) is undeniably on target! Climate change is an emergency! Wake up world! Our grandchildren need us to do better! Our task is to make the world better, not destroy it for the sake of the wealthy few.

I think Charles Apple’s “Tax cuts for the wealthy” (Aug. 12) article with the three charts is wonderful. The charts make it very clear as to what happened to our economy. Coming of age in the sixties as I did, the economy was very strong. The middle class was doing well. Jobs were abundant. It wasn’t until Reagan that the rich became richer and the middle class became poorer. Not much, if any, “trickled down.” It’s definitely time to change America for all her citizens. Our resources are meant for all, not just the wealthy!

Thanks, Spokesman-Review, for publishing such great thoughtful well-researched articles! I appreciate it.
