As a long-time visitor to Maine from Minnesota, I was pleased to read Edgar Allen Beem’s opinion piece in your Aug. 15-17 editions (“Blame the GOP”). Please heed his clarion call: the GOP and their president are hypnotizing some of the electorate to abandon our hard-won democracy, moral compass, and ability to discern fact from fiction. You have a chance to influence Sen. Susan Collins to deny her support of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Please stand up to these demagogues. So much is at stake.
