Pull your weight politicians – Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, South Korean political leaders take responsibility for public safety disasters, but American politicians in recent memory have not and will not, because they are ignoramuses and wusses. When is the last time you saw an American politician take even partial responsibility for the dangerous activities of citizens, whether vaping or opioid or sports gambling crazes, obesity, overpacked summer music concerts, fireworks mishaps, active shooters in schools, preventable crime, inflation, increasing racism and antisemitism, wrong-headed war, recession. You name the mistake or hazard, our leaders look the other way. For our politicians, it’s always someone else’s gig, not mine. If we don’t blame someone else, we blame no one at all. One thing we’re not willing to do is look in the mirror and see that we are neglecting our democratic duty to be our brother’s keeper.
