Quarantine not incarceration

While a 21-day voluntary at-home quarantine may be disruptive and even very inconvenient, Connie Lefler’s attempt, in her Saturday letter, to correlate it to the forced relocation and incarceration of American citizens for over three years is hyperbolic nonsense that ignores the gross differences between the two.

There is absolutely nothing that is similar about these two situations.

My family would gladly have exchanged 21 days at home for the three- and- one-half years they had to spend in the tar paper barracks of Jerome, Ark., and Tule Lake, Calif., after being forced to give up their businesses and homes.
