To the editor:

On the editorial page of The Commercial Review, I am not going to debate opinions and other potentially polemical subjects.

In his reply to my letter, Stephen Erwin’s version of the “facts” was interesting and revealing.

I invite and encourage Stephen to read Jane Mayer’s book “Dark Money.” I will go so far as to lend my copy of her book to Stephen should he be so inclined.

I was somewhat chagrined by Stephen’s apparent endorsement of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

DeSantis is, in my opinion, a more intelligent version of Donald Trump. “Trump-lite,” if you will. DeSantis is slightly less narcissistic, a tad less delusional and not quite as maliciously and perniciously mendacious as Trump. DeSantis’s “I would be King” proclivity is every bit as delusional as Trump’s, however.

DeSantis is the type of politician the billionaires in Mayer’s book dream of.

On the plus side, he does have a better hairdo.
