It was with great interest that I read your “Automobile Death Penalty” editorial in the April 6th edition of The Waynedale News. As your former classmate (EHS), I was amazed about your Corvair “incident” on Sandpoint Road, and I marveled at your very creative solution to protect teenage drivers. My brother has taught Driver Education for 30 years, and he firmly believes that the driving age should be a minimum of 18 years and a mandated increase in the hours of driving experience with parents/adults (NOT fellow teenagers).
Please know that I really appreciate the job you’re doing as editor of The Waynedale News…you edit and publish a valuable news source, and you have the power to reach (and influence) so many readers. May I suggest a topic for a future editorial? Did you know that the members of the state legislature, while complaining about the huge budget deficit and agonizing over which programs to cut, refuse to consider repealing the health insurance they receive (along with their spouses) FOR LIFE? Legislators are OUR employees who work a PART TIME job, but voted themselves this perk, along with monetary raises. I don’t understand why they should expect taxpayers to fund their expensive health premiums (perhaps they see that members of Congress get the same advantage). Do you have any solutions to this problem?
Thanks for changing careers and providing a great public service. I’m certain that our former EHS teachers are proud of your writing accomplishments!
