LETTER: Tough times for America’s seniors

The New York Times recently reported that 60 percent of the workforce lives paycheck to paycheck, and the average American is in five or six figures in debt. Wow. As usual, America’s government, businesses and media have completely forgotten seniors, who are under the gun from increases in rent, insurance, food, gasoline and energy costs.

Social Security, who many rely on, continues to reject inflation reality and is horribly behind on cost-of-living increases. Don’t get old in America unless you can support yourself, which most can’t due to debt and little savings.

Red Rock Canyon is a fragile natural wonder. To claim that 3,500 homes and the traffic that goes with them, and changing the nature of the watershed, will not negatively impact the area is absurd.

It’s strange that the mainstream media are treating Russian combat ships miles off the Florida coast as nothing to see here.
