Letter: Trump has Committed a Crime

To the Editor:

According to Wikipedia, "The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees free speech, and the degree to which incitement is protected speech is determined by the imminent lawless action test introduced by the 1969 Supreme Court decision in the case Brandenburg v. Ohio. The court ruled that incitement of events in the indefinite future was protected, but encouragement of 'imminent' illegal acts was not protected."

Donald Trump has openly incited people to vote twice, which is a felony. He has incited people to commit a crime which will take place no later than the first Tuesday of November. This is incitement to an imminent illegal act. Trump has broken the law and must be prosecuted.

He should be impeached and removed from office for the commission of an impeachable offense against the Constitution and against the laws of the United States. He appears to have committed a criminal act and should be prosecuted, and at least prevented from committing more criminal acts. Wake up, people! This man is using our freedoms to destroy those very freedoms. He is a danger to our nation.

Letter: Vitamin D May Provide Covid-19 Protection

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

Here is what the Mayo Clinic has observed about high rates of vitamin D deficiency in people with COVID-19 who experienced acute respiratory failure. These people had a significantly higher risk of dying. And a small, randomized study found that of 50 people hospitalized with COVID-19 who were given a high dose of a type of vitamin D (calcifediol), only one needed treatment in the intensive care unit.

In contrast, among the 26 people with COVID-19 who weren't given calcifediol, 13 needed to be treated in the intensive care unit. In addition, vitamin D deficiency is common in the United States, particularly among Hispanic and Black people. These groups have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19. Vitamin D deficiency is also more common in people who are older, people who have a body mass index of 30 or higher (obesity), and people who have high blood pressure (hypertension).

These factors also increase the risk of severe COVID-19 symptoms.

Taking Vitamin D-3 supplements may help protect us, especially those of us who are dark skinned. They are available at your local drug store and not expensive. Get the word out! We need to do all we can!
