Letter: FDR, Churchill, or Candidate C?

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

In response to Rinaldo Del Gallo III's letter regarding the flaws of MLK, George Washington, and Christopher Columbus in relation to the respective federal holidays named after each man, I ask that he answer the following question, below.

The moral of the story is that people are more than their personal faults. It is a person's goodness in his or her heart that matters far more than the flaws in their character. Candidate A and Candidate B, despite all of their flaws, saved the World from Candidate C. Please don't judge a person by their proverbial book cover. Being a decent human being means having both flaws and a good heart!

Question:
It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote counts.
Here are the facts about the three candidates. Who would you vote for?

Candidate A.

Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologist.
He's had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10 martinis a day.

Candidate B.


He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in
college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

Candidate C.

He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.

Which of these candidates would be our choice?

Decide first ... no peeking, then scroll down for the response.

Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

CPA Committee Outline Upcoming Grant Cycle

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Community Preservation Act Committee agreed on a schedule for the next grant cycle.
 
The committee spent the bulk of its meeting last week discussing the next cycle and agreed to keep a similar agenda to how it planned to move forward during this past cycle.
 
"We have been trying to feel this out, but this makes it easier for people in the community to track what is going on if we have some kind of level of general consistency," City Planner CJ Hoss said.
 
The CPA recently wrapped up a grant cycle delayed and affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. With uncertainty over if members could actually meet to review applications, they held off on deliberations until the spring.
