Gone to pot

Daily Press (Sunday) - - Local News -

I hope you can do an ar­ti­cle about peo­ple smok­ing mar­i­juana all over the place. I have peo­ple do­ing it all over my street … in Hamp­ton, and it’s aw­ful. You can’t even go out­side and breathe fresh air any­more.

Ed­i­tor: I love get­ting story ideas from

read­ers, but this one sounds like it’s a spe­cific neigh­bor­hood is­sue. I be­lieve this is a law en­force­ment mat­ter, and my sug­ges­tion would be to call the Hamp­ton Po­lice De­part­ment to share your con­cerns. I’m sure they’ll be able to help you.

Not the first lady

Sirs: On page 2 of to­day’s Daily Press, in the Feed­back col­umn, the head­line says “First lady’s e-mail broke rules ...” Does your pa­per not know that Ivanka is not our First Lady?

I’m not a sir, but I’ll an­swer any­way. This is one of those times when I had to shake my head and sigh heav­ily, es­pe­cially af­ter read­ing and lis­ten­ing to all the folks who called in about this faux pas — clearly a whop­per. Yes, of course we know that Ivanka Trump is Pres­i­dent Trump’s daugh­ter — not his wife. I can only as­sume the ed­i­tor who han­dled the head­line wasn’t pay­ing at­ten­tion. We ran a cor­rec­tion the next day. My apolo­gies for the mis­take.

Chief Jus­tice com­men­tary

Thurs­day’s pa­per said the chief jus­tice said we do not have Trump judges or Obama judges. … We have un­godly judges.

I don’t un­der­stand your com­men­tary. At first I thought there was some­thing wrong with our story, but when I checked there was noth­ing amiss with the head­line, the cap­tion or the ar­ti­cle. It read as fol­lows: “We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clin­ton judges,” Chief Jus­tice John Roberts said. “What we have is an ex­traor­di­nary group of ded­i­cated judges do­ing their level best to do equal right to those ap­pear­ing be­fore them.” So I can only as­sume this is a per­sonal com­ment on our ju­di­cial sys­tem, which isn’t some­thing I want to ad­dress.

Loved those sto­ries

Who knew or would ever guess all that about corn? We know it’s ubiq­ui­tous but who knew its fas­ci­nat­ing his­tory? We would never have picked up a book “all about corn” but hav­ing it be­fore our eyes in the DP! Thank you!

I am com­ment­ing on the ar­ti­cle on the Naval Weapons Sta­tion, on Mr. Doug John­son who is 96 years old. I hap­pen to know Doug John­son very well. I re­ally en­joyed the ar­ti­cle. Mar­ried my hus­band and I. He’s a won­der­ful man. He’s 96 and he still mar­ries peo­ple.

Love hear­ing from folks who ap­pre­ci­ate a story we’ve done. Thank you both for your kind words. To­day’s Feed­back was com­piled by Marisa Porto, pub­lisher and ed­i­tor of the Daily Press.
