    Dear Editor,

    It has dawned on me for years that too many of our elected officials were not voting for the best interests of America. Perhaps the hanging death of Jeffrey Epstein has answered my question. Apparently both Epstein and Harvey Weinestine had connections with current and ex Mossad members. Is it a coincidence that Anthony Bourdain also died of hanging after trying to expose a pedophile ring?

      We're all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn't. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.
      Without pain, how could we know joy?' This is an old argument in the field of thinking about suffering and its stupidity and lack of sophistication could be plumbed for centuries but suffice it to say that the existence of broccoli does not, in any way, affect the taste of chocolate.

                Suicide, drugs, or hitmen are always the cover up to what really happen to celebrities and politicians.... It seems like it's a cycle that keeps edit- repeating...

                                  The system is failing us. The system is easily exploit and abused by anyone. As an outsider looking in, this is a PR stunt, colateral and damage control roll into one like what you see on McD's value meal menu. I am worried for our future generation if no one really and honestly care to revamp the system.

                                          Can they stop calling this an “apparent suicide” and just say apparent death. Nobody’s buying that. He may not even really be dead.
