Politics don't make sense. Something has me confused how a person can be a senator one day and president of our country the next day? That's scary. Why don't they have to go up the ladder like a lot of companies do? They should be a vice president for four years, before advancing. There should be some kind of preparation, or to see if you will carry out your promises. Get prepared for leading our country.

No waiver was granted to allow federal funding for a new airport with a 9,000-foot runway to serve NASA Plum Brook and the area. Matthew J.

Tom Jarrett's (Northern Ohio Antique Mall) letter to the editor that appeared in the Jan. 23 Reflector caused me some amusement, not so much for the content of his letter as the nature of his business relationship with the Huron County commissioners. The commissioners have an interesting spokesperson on this matter. He is their tenant.
