Phillips: Letter writer missed point of original message

Posted 2/10/21

It is unfortunate that Sun City West resident Jim Somerville in his letter to the editor (“Impeachment necessary to send message,” Sun City West Independent, Jan. 27, 2021) completely missed the point of my comments pointing out the ugliness of an Impeach Trump banner hung on a home in our community.

Phillips: Letter writer missed point of original message

It is unfortunate that Sun City West resident Jim Somerville in his letter to the editor (“Impeachment necessary to send message,” Sun City West Independent, Jan. 27, 2021) completely missed the point of my comments pointing out the ugliness of an Impeach Trump banner hung on a home in our community.

Mr. Somerville seemingly was only interested in proselytizing and preaching his own opinion (and disdain for President Donald Trump) without truly understanding the real meaning of what I wrote, which is there’s no room for hatred in this community, and certainly no decent person would do anything which is bound to provoke the neighbors. None. Zero.

Now, can we all get on with life, please?
