Read Woodward’s book and judge for yourself

To the editor:

I have noticed that The Sentinel has been even handed lately in printing both right- and left-leaning opinions on its opinion page. However, I was disappointed in the cartoon on Monday’s editorial page. The cartoonist seems to be echoing the administration’s public statements on Bob Woodward’s recent book.

I am reading this book. The incidents in each chapter are meticulously referenced. True, Woodward does not reveal his sources, but this does not negate the truth of the events that he relates.

I have read about Mr. Trump’s empathetic interactions with grieving widows of fallen soldiers in Woodward’s book, events that, frankly, I would not have believed. Please do not be afraid to read and judge for yourself.
