Thank you to Alan Caron for his Nov. 5 column (“Economically, happy days won’t be here again without attitude adjustment”). This piece included these lines:

“At exactly the moment when we most need to pull together – to create a kind of ‘Team America’ or ‘Team Maine’ – we’re pulling apart, consumed with partisanship, pessimism, anger and excuses.”

“What (Franklin D.) Roosevelt understood, for himself and the country, was that without a positive attitude and effective teamwork, no great victories can be achieved. Today we could use more Roosevelt and a lot fewer (Donald) Trumps.”

Keep up the good work!
