Politics are usually kept out of this blog, but it’s hard not to marvel at the President’s statement following the killing of a pedestrian by a white supremacist in a vehicle attack just east of the Water Street Garage:
We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of bigotry, hatred, and violence on many sides, on many sides. It’s been going on for a long time in our country. Not Donald Trump, not Barack Obama, this has been going on for a long, long time. It has no place in America. What is vital now is a swift restoration of law and order and the protection of innocent lives. No citizen should ever fear for their safety and security in our society. And no child should ever be afraid to go outside and play or be with their parents and have a good time.
