To the Editor:
I have followed local, state and federal government activities as a news and investigative reporter, and as an interested Native American reader for well over five decades. During that period of time, I have never observed such a disgraceful so called national leader or politician as President Donald Trump in my professional news experience, or as one who has followed these affairs as a concerned citizen.
So I did not have a hard time understanding Paul Mordecai Rosenberg's use of the word "ignominious" to describe Trump in Paul's letter to the editor. Yes, this resident of the the high office is, as defined in the dictionary with that word, as "discreditable; humiliating and deserving of contempt." SEE https://www.dictionary.com/browse/ignominious

To the Editor of Litchfield.bz:
Bless Donald Trump. He alone kept us out of a hot war with North Korea. Not only should he be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in the ignominious tradition of Albert Gore Jr and Barack Obama, but he should be canonized without delay.
And I’d love to be the Devil’s Advocate . . .

Cable TV rates out of control
Are you fed up with constant cable TV rates going up with no way to stop it?
Cable companies have raised rates once or twice a year on set top boxes, sports surcharges and Broadcaster surcharges that have no benefit to us. They raise our monthly payments and fill cables greedy pockets. Remember that these are monopolies and we cannot get services from any other supplier than the one connected to our home. The only alternative suppliers are Frontier that uses old phone lines for data or satellite services that have low speed for video and data with data speeds cut after you used your allotted bandwidth for the month I am happy to say that there is now a proposed bill (6421) in the CT house to create regulations on the rates.
There are a few other things that cable has done to make more money at our expense. Cable has quietly moved TV signal off standard TV video transport that had FCC regulations and quality standards for and moved them on pure data transport that has absolutely no regulations or quality requirements. They have loaded the transport more each year and the signals to the home have been lowered to the point that you can now see video freeze, pixilation and audio issues. Note: a home that had perfectly good cables for TV signal on RF cables will not work under the new data loading and Cable can send their techs in and charge you to fix your home wiring. Great way to get each home owner to pay Cable for the problem created by cable companies.
