Am I to assume the stock photograph of Rep. Ocasio-Cortez putting on glasses, which accompanied “AOC says Hurricane Dorian ‘is what climate change looks like’: ‘This is about science & leadership’” (Web, Sept. 3), is there to imply that the congresswoman is overdue for an eye exam? If you’re going to give the devil his due, then the preposterous are to be given the benefit of the doubt, too — and I doubt Ocasio-Cortez assimilated this nonsense alone.

We are in hurricane season, and this is what hurricanes do during hurricane season. Yes, the lives lost and destruction are much worse than ever before; this much cannot and will not be denied. But that’s only because there’s something in the areas hit to be destroyed. AOC is what hysteria sounds like when amplified.
