Dear Editor,

Listening to the many conservative radio hosts and the abundances of reporting by Fox News about our government, I am reminded of words from Winston Churchill’s book, “The Gathering Storm.”

The Lion of Great Britain recounts, “…the woeful miscalculations of which we are at present, the dupes..unless we take warning in time, we may someday be the victims.”

Then from a childhood memorized verse, he quotes, “Who is in charge of this clattering train. The axles creak and the couplings strain, and the pace is hot and the points are near and sleep has deadened the driver’s ear; And the signals flash through the night in vain, for Death is in charge of this clattering train.”

– Donna L. James
