The letter to the editor by Richard Ays in the Dec. 12 Whidbey News-Times and South Whidbey Record provokes my response.
Attributing the Biblical power of the Four Horseman of the Apocalypse to our Democratic leaders in Washington, D.C. is a bit much.
My view is that, in our times, the Four Horseman may be represented by the following: Climate change, COVID-19, racism and the divisiveness and hatred that keeps us from working together to solve problems.
The current administration is whipping those horses into full gallop, putting the future of human civilization at risk.
