The only thing that would ensure Ukraine’s sovereignty is that the country be brought into NATO. That is what President Putin fears the most. Sanctions do not deter Putin. If Ukraine was a member of NATO, Putin would know that 30 nations would be ready to fight him. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy begged to be a member. Apparently, Ukraine was not allowed to become a NATO member because the other nations did not want to go to war to maintain Ukraine’s right to be a democratic country.

Biden's the problem

Rarely in the history of Western nations has a leader assumed vast powers and within one year completely disrupted his mandate by imposing unpopular personal, economic and military policies, including mandates, which proved wildly ineffectual to his constituency. But that was exactly the experience of U.S. voters after the election of Joe Biden as president. No matter the issue, Joe Biden has failed by wide margins and now even Democratic voters want change. Americans are now being tested positive in keeping families and businesses solvent and all of the woe has been caused by bad governance. That is the definition of a tragedy, as all of this was avoidable.

Brightline's 'people' problem

Contrary to the Feb.15 article, Brightline does not have a safety issue, with hitting people on the tracks. People who drive or walk around lowered, lighted gates into harm's way, are not there by accident but by intent. They have to know the danger, choose to make fatal decisions, which the engineers are unable to avoid.

As a child growing up one short block from mainline New York Central tracks in Ohio, we knew that we had to watch and listen, as RR crossings had signs and a few had bells. None had crossing gates, and none were a place to play chicken with oncoming trains. And maybe life was at a slower pace, and drivers more willing to wait for a high-speed train to pass. Get smart and let the train have the right of way.
