Build the pedestrian bridge over Water Street now

Let some of our Connecticut taxes come to New London. We deserve it. Let’s vote to build the pedestrian bridge over Water Street. It will bring construction jobs and pedestrians can have a nice high view of the parade park and...

Italian American disturbed that heritage attacked

I can't believe what is happening in this world. I am Italian, born Jean Impellitteri, and proud of it. My dad was proud of his background as was my uncle, who was mayor of New London. Taking down the Columbus statue was unbelieveable.

Presidential election is not over, that awaits Dec. 14

In recent weeks The Day published numerous letters decrying President Trump's refusal to concede defeat. This criticism demonstrates unawareness of how America elects its president. On the nominal Election Day, we the people voted not...

Failure to accept results doing great damage to our democracy

The picture in the Nov. 15 edition of The Day of Trump supporters in Washington protesting their loss prompted sad thoughts. After the next Super Bowl will fans of the losing team angrily mob the trophy...

Trump divisive from his start to his finish

Many years ago I had a teacher who often used the phrase, "A shut mouth means a wise head." This would be wise advice for our current president. He is the most divisive and corrosive leader we have had for the last 100 years.

Columnist was right, Connecticut needs tolls

I applaud Paul Choiniere’s column, “Lamont was right, Connecticut needs tolls,” (Nov. 29). I have an EZ Pass and...

Why didn't Republicans congratulate Joe Biden?

On Nov. 3, the Connecticut Republican Party posted on Facebook a long stream of congratulatory messages to Connecticut Republicans on this year's campaign results. There was not a single congratulatory message to President-elect Joe...

Now is the time to provide vaccine information

College students from all over the country returned home for Thanksgiving. Many students arrived from states where increasing surges of the coronavirus are causing increased positive cases and deaths. Although some students may have...

History's awful lesson about attacking democracy

It is interesting that PBS is running a series on the rise of the Nazis. Do not forget that Adolf Hitler was first elected to the German government and used the Reichstag fire (probably set by the Nazis) as an excuse to seize dictatorial power!...

Lamont should leave businesses and citizens alone to make decisions

This letter concerns Gov. Ned Lamont's decision to impose punitive fines on struggling businesses. It is absurd. I am a citizen of Connecticut and I do not need governmental protection. Stick to the normal business of governing and...

Bush had character that Obama lacks

President George W. Bush was silent during the eight years of President Obama's presidency, but Obama, within the past few months, has not had the character of President Bush to be silent; just saying! Peter...

Add Day headline: 'Kudos to our carriers'

I continue to be impressed by the work done by the carriers of The Day. Every day it should arrive, and there it is. Regardless of terrible weather or COVID-19 conditions, which must affect many of their families. Regardless of hard...

Biden's middle-class focused economic approach

The next president will focus on revitalizing the middle class and making it more racially inclusive.

COVID warning is serious, Lamont's options shrinking

Gov. Lamont must take with great seriousness a warning from doctors that a failure to act now in shutting down segments of the economy could cost...

Pedestrian bridge and Coast Guard museum must be treated as one

We remain bullish on the planned museum location on the city’s waterfront. Other communities would be happy to steal the project from New...


Columnist Lee Elci

Head-scratching numbers continue election doubts

It just doesn't add up. And Trump's legal team has less than two weeks to prove fraud is the reason.

Columnist Robert Reich

The dangerous seduction of 'back to normal'

America wants to return to a reassuring normal, but Biden can't allow it. Complacency would be deadly. He has to both calm the waters and stir the...

Columnist Froma Harrop

Voters do not buy simple left/right arguments

Liberal Californians voted against affirmative action. Conservative Floridians supported a big hike in the minimum wage. Folks are not as simple as...
