Letters from Readers: Commentary on Democrats’ infighting, Jaguars’ games in London, ages of Duval schools, criticism of Trump and criticism of news coverage of Trump.

Democrats must stop fighting


and rally around a candidate


Democrats, do you want to keep up the in-house rivalry? Or do you want a chance at winning the election?


If Democrats put their weight solidly behind the candidate who wins the primary, and votes, for goodness sake, Democrats have a chance in November.


Why not start saying good things about each other?

Why aren’t more people upset


about Jaguars’ games in London?


I don't understand why more people aren't upset about the two Jaguars home games being played in London.


Who can afford to go to London? At least Shad Khan is making money at our expense; he sure doesn't care about the fans here in Jacksonville

Reader wants more facts on


ages of Duval County schools


In 1945 I started first grade at Hendricks Avenue Elementary School.


My father started fourth grade at West Riverside Elementary School in 1923 and graduated from Robert E. Lee High School in 1932.


We need a list of every Duval County school and when it was built. Give us another list of all of our charters, starting with the oldest, so we can know how old they are.


We also need to know who owns the buildings the charter schools are in.


Give us some data to work with in making the decision about how much charter schools will get from the sales tax increase if it passes in November.

Trump undervalues competence


while he manages with chaos


As an independent voter and older person, I was well aware of the untruthful nature of the president. Thomas Wells, an attorney who worked with him, said before the election "Donald Trump lies everyday even about things of no consequence."


Yet, what has surprised me most is what conservative pundit David Brooks described about the Trump White House after the disastrous travel ban roll-out, calling it "equal parts chaos and incompetence."


Valuing loyalty over competence, preferring a chaotic management style and a disdain for planning left his staff, Congress and our country in a lurch. Firing the global pandemic team last year is par for the course.

Dow surges, news is buried;


Dow plunges, news on A-1


The Dow surged almost 1,300 points on Monday. This is good news and President Donald Trump can't be credited for it.


Had it gone the other way then it would have been caused by his inept handling of the coronavirus or some other flimsy excuse.
