“Et tu, Donny?” What kind of head­line is that? Was that a typo or are your head­line writ­ers los­ing their minds? We don’t want no for­eign lan­guages in our head­lines. This is Amer­ica, and ev­ery­body should speak English all the time. It’s the na­tive lan­guage of Amer­ica. You should or­der your cheeses­teaks in English and write your head­lines in English. Enough is enough, Daily Times! You’ve gone too far this time!

THAT SPORT­ING LIFE

I don’t know why on Tues­day on Satur­day and Sun­days they have golf on. Golf to me is one of the most bor­ing sports there is. Also you can have ten­nis — that’s an­other bor­ing sport. Wish they would put some­thing else on TV be­sides golf and ten­nis. They’re very bor­ing sports. I don’t care about them at all. Put on some rough and tough sports, that’s the kind of sports I like.

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY

I see a cou­ple of peo­ple posted about global warm­ing. Ob­vi­ously you don’t know the dif­fer­ence be­tween weather and cli­mate. You want to see what cli­mate change is do­ing, head down to Carolina this week and you’ll get some first-hand knowl­edge.

SPEED KILLS

The guy in the White House makes up facts and then lies about ev­ery­thing. It’s like trick­le­down eco­nom­ics. It’s trick­ling down to the gen­eral pub­lic be­cause I’m read­ing about this hoax be­hind speed cam­eras in Pennsylvania. I think I read in the pa­per the other day that state troop­ers along Route 1 were al­low­ing peo­ple to go 10 to 15 mph over the speed limit be­fore they pull them over. Ex­cuse me, if you were go­ing over the speed limit you were break­ing the law. So they’re ba­si­cally say­ing it’s OK if you’re only break­ing the law a lit­tle bit.

GIVE THEM AN INCH ...

THANKS FOR RE­MEM­BER­ING

I wanna thank all of the law en­force­ment and all the first re­spon­ders, all the politi­cians of Delaware County and many more peo­ple for re­mem­ber­ing the vic­tims of 9/11. We must never for­get that tragedy. We must never for­get Dec. 7, Pearl Har­bor Day, and the vic­tims of 9/11. God bless them all. HENNY THE BAR­TENDER

MONEY FOR NOTH­ING

Pres­i­dent Trump doesn’t draw a pay­check. I don’t think he needs it. Gov. Wolf does not take a pay­check. He drives his own lit­tle Jeep and ev­ery­thing be­cause he cares about Pennsylvania. They both give their pay to char­ity. Trump wanted to give your money back to the peo­ple and get So­cial Se­cu­rity a nice raise. I could sure use it to put a roof on my house be­fore all the rain comes down inside, which some of it does. I’m just wait­ing for the snow to come and then I’ll move to the White House.

FIRE KAPLER!

The Phillies are not a good team. They don’t hit steal bases or play de­fense and they don’t have any good prospects com­ing up like the rest of the Na­tional League. De­spite hav­ing high picks from the last three years, Kapler has given Philly fans an­other few years of bad base­ball. All sum­mer long I called in and never got pub­lished. Now maybe you will lis­ten and please print in cap­i­tal let­ters “Fire Kapler!”

BONDS THAT TIE

One more thing about govern­ment and all these banks charg­ing in­ter­est on stu­dent loans: Like I said, peo­ple who go to col­lege to earn de­grees should not be charged in­ter­est on their stu­dent loans. Even­tu­ally when they grad­u­ate they are go­ing to add to our econ­omy and make this coun­try bet­ter. I worked 40+ years. I started get­ting govern­ment bonds and I kept up a num­ber from $50 a month to $100 to $500 a month and fi­nally when my son grad­u­ated he paid off al­most all of his whole stu­dent loan with the bonds I had got­ten from the govern­ment. He tells me now he is so thank­ful be­cause ev­ery one of his friends is sad­dled with so much debt from the stu­dent loans. He is the only one of his friends that doesn’t have a stu­dent loan to pay off.
