Facts matter

Apr 12, 2021

To the editor:
Especially in these times of rampant “fake news,” facts matter now more than ever.
When anyone can get on a soapbox and go on a tirade against the governor while, almost undoubtedly, having turned a blind eye to the twenty-six woman who accused former president Trump of various degrees of sexual misconduct, it is important to be reminded that it was Sam Cooke who wrote “A Change is Gonna Come,” not Otis Redding.
And I'm sure he is turning over in his grave at the thought of his civil rights anthem being invoked in such a manner.
