We have The Don­ald to thank for this

RE: Let’s see some pos­i­tive news on Trump (Jan. 27)

I agree with Rod Witzel about see­ing more favourable cov­er­age of The Don­ald. So in that spirit, I will do just that. Let’s see, let’s see, hmmm, OK, got one. Thanks to Don­ald Trump, Ge­orge Or­well’s “1984” has rock­eted to the top of Ama­zon best­sellers — in fact, I or­dered a copy yes­ter­day — and it is now out of sup­ply. The same ap­plies to Han­nah Ahrendt’s “The Ori­gins of To­tal­i­tar­i­an­ism” — sold out!

So you see, Trump has pro­moted lit­er­acy and po­lit­i­cal aware­ness for book lovers ev­ery­where, and for that I say thank you! John Paul Mor­ri­son, An­caster
