Letter: Good riddance

Published: 1/16/2021 12:01:57 AM

Prior to the election in November, I wrote that democracy could not survive another four years of Donald Trump, to which I received pushback from the usual suspects. I was wrong in that prediction. The president’s behavior subsequent to the election, culminating in the insurrection of Jan. 6, demonstrated that he needed only weeks, not years, to launch his final assault on our democratic way of life.

Though his toxic legacy will linger on, we can only hope that he exits without causing further damage and ultimately will disappear into the dust bin of history.
