Letter to the New York Times

Biden vs. Sanders: The Next Leg of the Democratic Race. New York Times. March 6th, 2020, by Stephen F. Eisenman, Aa co-founder.

To the Editor:

For the many disappointed Bernie Sanders supporters (including me), we need to keep our eyes on the ball: saving human civilization (and myriad animal species) from extinction. Here’s how: Bernie must call up Joe Biden now and tell him that if he will publicly and enthusiastically endorse a Green New Deal, Bernie will quit the race and work to unite the party.

The genius of it is that the Green New Deal is very popular with voters, especially the young voters Mr. Biden needs, so it’s a win-win!
