Free Men Are Not Experiments
Here is the letter I sent to the Delco Symphony and the Executive Assistant to the President of Neumann University effectively severing my decade long affiliation with the Orchestra.
During the past ten years I have been a season ticket subscriber and haven’t missed a concert other than the ones canceled in 2020 or the occasional snowstorm cancelation in previous years. I also supported them financially during 2020 when they were not permitted to play to an audience, through donations to help fund a virtual season.
Feel free to post this email should you find it of interest for your readers.
To whom it may concern:
I am emailing to inform the Delaware County Symphony and Neumann University, after a decade of patronage, I will no longer attend any chamber or symphony concerts.
I am basing my decision on the hysteria caused by a virus with 99 percent survivability. Essential freedom is never to be traded for a false or temporary sense of security.
Demanding performers and guest artists “show their papers” is not only an egregious violation of one’s personal medical information it reeks of authoritarianism. In addition, demanding patrons wear a cloth mask, that does little to nothing to prevent exposure to viruses, however provides a damp environment for all sorts of harmful bacteria to thrive is neither healthy nor based in sound science.
I am in effect “canceling” my affiliation with the DCS and will continue to practice socialist distancing from proponents of what I know is junk science and Lysenkoism.
Just this past week the CDC and the FDA engaged in a debate over booster shots. Science is not by consensus. Science is repeatable and demonstrable. Never forget the CDC gave us the Tuskegee Experiments and the FDA approved Thalidomide.
I am a free man. I am no one’s experiment – social, scientific or otherwise.

Being Green In Chester Isn’t Easy
By Bob Small
Kearni Warren is running for a seat on Chester City Council. If she should somehow win, she would be the first Green Party member to ever sit on Chester City Council. Her main issue is the ever-present environmental environmental racism issue of Covanta i.e. Chester being a dumping grounds for Delco.
Kearni is running to unseat Portia West (D) who she feels has not done enough on the environmental racism issue. However, this has become a three way race as Stefan Roots (D), blogger and Swarthmorean columnist is also opposing her. It would seem two challenger candidates might consider working together but Democrats act as though they are not, historically, allowed to work with Greens on anything. Now if Warren was a Working Party Candidate, or a DSA Candidate…
Kearni is the daughter of the late Rev. Bernice Warren, who served for two decades (until 2016) as Pastor/Director of Chester East Side Ministries.
Kearni stated that Stefan’s win, in the Primary, against incumbent William Jacobs inspired her to run. However, it seems that Stefan, once an insurgent Candidate, is now aligning himself with the Democratic Establishment.
Also, Stefan had almost weekly articles in The Swarthmorean, which we all looked forward to, on the goings on in the City of Chester, These seem to have stopped,at least recently, Also his Campaign Manager, is one Todd Strine, a Philadelphian who is also co-Publisher of, you guessed it, The Swarthmorean.
Kearni is a graduate of Eastern University’s Business Administration program. She has worked in various positions for (SEIUHCPA) Service Employees International Union Healthcare Pennsylvania, and United Home Care Workers of Pennsylvania.
She’s a great believer in the Bible, especially Luke 12:48 ìFrom everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded, and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much will be demanded.î She wants to continue in the Social Justice spirit of her mother.
Though no fan of previous 20th century Chester governments, she stated that “In the 21st Century, we have a constant flow of Democratic Council Members who can’t even get the trash picked up on time, let alone address Chester’s severe social, environmental, and financial pitfalls”
