Letter: City needs to find way back to civility

From: Basil Fritsch


I previously lived in Chicago for 70 years, where I witnessed multiple ways to subvert the lawful election process. I am sad to see that my memories have followed me.

I hear the reporting of “facts” never witnessed or in evidence; gossip “I heard it, so it must be true”; then Onions/Orchids bearing false information regarding the candidates. I hear powerful people responding negatively because of past disappointments or hoping for future gains and repeating imagined interactions with the candidates to support their position. Let’s return to the calmness and civility of the Columbus that I had learned to love.
