My recent letter about freedoms needing enhancing restrictions seems not to have reached every one. The government (the people) is only trying to restrict the freedom to catch and spread a dangerous disease. If you think the “government” can’t or shouldn’t make you wear a face mask in order to protect the health of the general public you may be thinking the same way the late Melvin Edison Hale thought 20 years ago.
I was reflecting about dead heroes this Memorial Day and the freedoms they gave up to protect us. Trooper Randall Vetter came to mind. He stopped a 72-year-old driver for not wearing a seat belt. While he was sitting in his patrol car writing the ticket, the suspect exited his vehicle and opened fire with a rifle. Randy Vetter died four days later.
