Day of reason?
To the Editor:
Our befuddled governor, Lincoln Chafee, has done it again. He managed to alienate most Rhode Islanders by declaring the National Day of Prayer also a Rhode Island Day of Reason. The puppeteers of the governor in this instance are the Humanists of Rhode Island and the Secularists Coalition.
This proclamation, along with the governor’s penchant for fighting for the rights of convicted murderers and renaming Christmas trees, continues his tenure of impetuous and erroneous actions that do not engender any confidence in our chief executive. On the contrary, his stated paradigms are emblematic of a meandering mind without destination or objective.
One can only conclude with this latest bewildering action, that Chafee is so immersed in his own fantastical subjective world that he is oblivious to the sensitivities of most Rhode Islanders. Or, perhaps his plummeting poll numbers have made him caustically spiteful to the citizens of the state he governs. Either way, Chafee’s term cannot end soon enough. Then we can have a serious governor who will address the many grave problems that our state faces.
