Funding necessary


Funding necessary

Dear Editor,

I had just indicated to our Editor that I would “lighten-up” on my letters.  Then the shooting in El Paso happened!

It has been said before but I must repeat:   “Thoughts and prayers for the survivors are a damn poor substitute for the victims of such atrocities.”  

Some few years ago a popular President terminated Federal Funding for Mental Health which caused the closing of many psychiatric Hospitals. Oh Joy!  We are cutting down on the federal spending of those spend-thrift politicians!  Having adequate Mental Health funding would neither prevent all gun violence nor all homeless problems.  But, it would, at least, make a dent in the problems.  It might even motivate some state politicians to seriously consider taking up the cause of some citizen-centric problems.
