Regarding the photo Left hanging (Aug. 16) about the bus crashing into a utility pole.

What was the cause? Is it safe to ride our buses? Do they have steering or brake problems? Was the driver swerving to miss an accident or avoid running over a squirrel? Was it a driver problem? The cause should be explained to put them at ease.

Sounds like a creator

The article Guiding eyes to the sky (Aug. 15) about the coming eclipse included the comment that astronomers can predict the eclipse down to the second. That is extraordinary, since the common belief is that the universe just happened over many years. How did Earth get into a precise orbit around the sun, together with the moon precisely around Earth, so that it can be timed as to where they will be to the second. For such precision, doesn’t that require an accurate design with a designer producing the design?

Teach love, start now

Regarding the editorial Why we should care about Charlottesville (Aug. 15).

What happened should matter to everyone. Just last month, here on Canadian soil, our military brass was criticized by some for its swift action against sailors who interrupted of a demonstration at the Cornwallis statue in Halifax. I applaud them.

Children are not born with a hate gene. Hate is a learned behaviour. Racism is a learned behaviour. It is never too early to introduce equality and acceptance and denounce racism.

Inviting policing

The wild west has come to Lambeth. Prior to annexation, we had good traffic control by the OPP. Since annexation, the London police force is conspicuously absent. Main Street and Col. Talbot Road are choose-your-own-speed.

We are not hard to find. Drive south on Wharncliffe or Colonel Talbot and you will get to Lambeth. Bring your radar gun.
