Letters to the Editor

Did you listen to or read President Donald Trump’s comments in the Rose Garden following his recent  walkout of a meeting on infrastructure with Congressional leaders?

He was rambling, at times incoherent, and as usual thinking of himself and not of the country’s needs.

Yogi Berra in his most memorable malaprops made as much or even more sense than the president. Berra, a true team player who won three World Series MVP awards, was well known for his many yogi-isms – eg, “nobody goes there anymore because it is too crowded," or “it’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”

Two yogi-isms would seem to be particularly instructional for the president – “you can learn a lot just by watching” and “ if you ask me anything I don’t know, I’m not going to answer.” Berra is in the hall of fame; Donald Trump would be indicted for obstruction if he were not president.
