Letter: Enjoy newfound tranquility


Liberty is the word most often cited in the U.S. Constitution, but I have given a lot of thought recently to another word found there: tranquility.

A recent letter by Christine Nulph (“Twitter ban is totalitarian,” Our Readers’ Views, Jan. 16) complained about the banning of the then-president’s tweets. I must admit that I have been enjoying the relative silence, and expect even less noise now that President Biden has been sworn in.

The letter writer expressed concern about “totalitarianism and seditious tyranny.” A very interesting way of viewing this action by a private company. Personally, I am more concerned about “Authoritarian Arson,” or perhaps “Political Pyromania,” plus all that noise.

I think the insanity is going to last a little longer, don’t you? However, as long I am allowed my tranquility, as guaranteed by the Constitution, I will be happy.
