Letter: Not-so-perfect apples | The Brattleboro Reformer

Editor of the Reformer,

Soon it will be the time for apple picking in Vermont.

And if we want good apples, for the best value, we need to research the many types of apples available, ahead of time.

Whether standing in front of a tree in an apple orchard, or at a bin in a supermarket, we all want to get the best.

Hopefully, we will notice that no two apples will be the same or perfect.

We must choose which apple would be the best value and healthiest for us.

Now, I will compare this to the presidential race.

Here it is also very important that we must also try to pick the best candidate (apple).

Because many people don’t care for the Biden apple, they will just choose the poisonous Trump apple again, even with all its disgusting, slimy worms and smelly, swarming fruit flies.

Or they just may not pick, or buy, any apples.

Remember what happened to the 2016 presidential election results, because a lot of people hated the Hillary apple? Also, think about all the sickness and damage that the poisonous Trump apple has done to our people and country since then.

We must not let this happen again! Too many rotten apples slipped into our politics because of our thoughtlessness and inaction.

Keep in mind that no two apples or candidates are perfect. We must pick the most qualified, honest, nutritious and unbruised one.

Please note that I do apologize for writing such a simple analogy.

And do not assume that the Ginger Gold is the Trump apple, because the Ginger Gold is my personal favorite!
