From Eric Nagler, Commerce Township:
It’s great that Don Donigan likes George Santayana and likes to learn from history (“Letter was ‘right on,’” Spinal Column Newsweekly, Nov. 2, 2011). Even better than history is to learn from today’s events. So to Mr. Donigan and Dan Ruetenik I say this — look at what’s happening in Greece and Europe today with its unsustainable welfare state, high taxes, out-of-control spending, rioting, and the people’s never-ending sense of entitlement, and you will see the future of this country. And even scarier is that this is (the) model our president has embraced and wishes us to follow.
