Letters » Continued from page 8 true, and reprehensible, it can be dangerous, when actions that in my youth were described as “flirting” are now described as “sexual assault,” and can be used to destroy men’s lives and careers. As Katty Kay of BBC News said in a recent editorial, there may be a backlash coming, where many men will just back away from interacting with women, profes- sionally and socially. This may have unexpected consequences for society. More men might retreat to the relative safety of homosexuality, rather than risk unpredictable responses from otherwise attractive women. I’m sure that this would be a welcome development for those pushing a liberal agenda. Another result could be an increase in prostitution, where more men reduce their sex life to mere commercial transactions, with largely anonymous partners. The ultra-liberal Court of Appeals in San Francisco has recently struck down anti-prostitution laws in California, and the signing of SB1322 law by Jerry Brown has already decriminalized prostitu- tion by minors. As a T-shirt in the heartland (Trump country) might declare; “Sodom, Gomorrah, San Fran- cisco, Who’s next?” Royce Haynes Georgetown Economic justice is central to healthy society Corporate and business rights are so much stronger than labor rights at this point, working people need to be organized to protect themselves against the predations of profit seeking. The boards of directors and shareholders of business are al- ways looking to maximize profit, and one of the first ways to do this is to put the squeeze on labor. Labor unions give workers a seat at the bargaining table. The power is still tilted against them, but their union gives them some leverage to make things fairer. The so-called “Right-to-Work” laws reward the people who want the good pay and strong benefits that come from having a union without paying the dues that make the union possible. Many of us tend to want to save money now rather than invest in the future, and choose to opt out of paying the dues. Corporate executives count on people making the wrong choice and thus hollowing out unions and leaving no one to represent them at the table. The weaker unions are, the lower wages are for everyone. A study by the Economic Policy Institute in February 2011 found that wages for all workers were 16 percent lower in so-called “right- to-work” states. “Right-to-work” laws represent a corporate race to the bottom that pits states against each other to lower wages and weaken worker’s rights. The pressure to make Delaware a “right-to-work” state should be firmly resisted. Also, at the federal level, a new bill has been introduced by Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Brad Sherman to institute a federal ban on these so-called “right-to-work” laws. It’s called the Protecting Workers and Improving Labor Standards Act. Urge your Congress persons to support this bill. Economic justice is central to a healthy society. Michael Lawton Ocean View Rehoboth Main Street thanks supporters I would like to take the oppor- tunity on behalf of the board and volunteers of Rehoboth Beach Main Street to spread thanks and appreciation to all involved in the successful and inaugural Rehoboth Beach Main Street holiday event, Cookies, Cocktails & Cheer. A snowy night did not stop many in our community from coming out to experience the best of our business community: sweet and delicious cookies and cock- tails from our amazing down- town restaurants, and holiday cheer and special offers from our unique, and treasured stores and boutiques. In fact, the snow decorated downtown Rehoboth Beach, mak- ing our holiday celebration that much more magical. This night would not have happened without the efforts of many dedicated elves. Entertain- ment was expertly provided by our major sponsor iHeart Radio (FROGGY 99.99, MAGIC 98.9, Q105 & KISS local stations) who broadcast the event live. Additionally, the talented CAMP Rehoboth Choir and youthful, enthusiastic KeeNote Kids strolled downtown spread- ing their cheer with carols inside and outside to the delight of all, and Santa made a pre-Christmas appearance to hear the wishes of children and adults alike. Thank you Dennis Diehl. This event would not have been possible without the assis- tance of the mayor, city manager, and city communications director who helped guide the new RBMS board to put on a safe and enjoy- able event. Special thanks goes to our 100-plus top-shelf restaurants and shops; if they are open year- round, they were involved! That’s true community support. Their desire to bring our community together for a night of unity made our event possible. May I suggest you reward their commitment to community by supporting those businesses on a regular basis. No words can accurately express the gratitude and ap- preciation to one amazing Special Events Committee - Susan Kehoe of Browseabout Books, Pete Borsari of The Pond and 1st & Pond, Megan Kee of Fable, Nick Pawson of Fable, Ryan Schwam- berger of Dogfish Head Brewpub and Chesapeake & Maine, Cathy Deighan of iHeart Radio, Danielle Panarello of SoDel Concepts, and five additional, awesome and sup- portive RBMS board members. This dedicated and driven group managed to pull off a wonderful, inaugural Cookies, Cocktails & Cheer event for Rehoboth Beach Main Street. Thank you to all and have a safe and healthy holiday season. Trey Kraus president Rehoboth Beach Main Street Board of Directors
