  1. I recently became acquainted with Ms. Zito’s commentary in THE WASHINGTON EXAMINER and look forward to her columns each week. She always seems to capture the concerns of so many of us and addresses them in a down-to-earth, common-sense way. Much appreciated!

  2. Just listened to you on Mike Rose’s “That the Way I Heard It” and loved it. You guys are American heroes and your work is much appreciated. I too am from PA (Pgh to be exact) and listening to you and Mike this morning was better than a good cup of coffee for starting off my day. Your beliefs in the American spirit and worker gave me chills. I know the following phrase is waaaaaay overused but it fits. Thank you for what you guys do.

  3. Good day Salena,

    Have just now seen you on Fox News on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.

    Noticed you appear to be a very poor speaker in that you did not seem to have your thoughts well organized at the start, then you became better as you moved through the on-air time. Having been in tv/radio since I was a child performer 70 years ago my advice to you would be to ensure you have your facts down to save from any speech impediments.

    The best thing is to always read overall major points just as you would a speech in advance and you might even speak to another who can advise you where you need to improve before making any public speaking appearance. Lastly, for someone your age you appear to have a much too large amount of hair some of which could be trimmed back for a better overall appearance. However, you are very good at what you do and we wish you all the very best.

    Selena: I practiced cardiac surgery for many years in Pittsburgh, where I was born and raised, and a great many of my patients came from West Virginia coal country, as well as from other parts of Appalachia. I can only tell you that I gained enormous respect and affection for those invariably well-grounded people. I realize that they can be an “easy target”:for mockery and condescension, but I know, as you obviously do, that these people are not stupid, and they sure as hell are not lazy! If you ever have the opportunity to see a play named “October Sky, ” I suggest that you do so. You’ll thoroughly enjoy it. Please keep up writing about the things you do. I make it a point to read all of your Town Hall columns.

  5. Thank you for your article “why liberal elites are so resentful” from my perspective it was spot on. I moved from the semiconductor industry in Boise, Idaho, to a small Montana town to support oil field operations companies. That was 15 years ago, my kids grew up better…my life was more enjoyable and free. I worked harder…made more money and my life is 10 times better.

    I grew up in Boise and watched grow from a mid-sized town in the sixties to a typical city filling with failing infrastructure and arrogant elitists trying to control your everyday life. I do electronic maintenance and keep close tabs on technology fronts. My parents did well but we were raised to make our own way as they had. Within my family of 5 siblings, the drive to be conservative and take care of your own problems and create your own future was lost to my younger sister and brother. Maybe it was military service that brought me the patriotism and self-reliance I enjoy today. But small-town life has always held for me a better life.

    Thanks again for your writing.

    Hi Salena,

    I was deeply impressed with your work and remarkable achievements. In addition to your great intellect are your deep passions for what you do and your seemingly deep moral compass…attributes that demonstrate your solid moral upbringing. I truly appreciate that!

    Reading your article about “260”, your quote from your parents” always be grateful and show grace, no matter the situation” summarizes your personality and your professional commitment.

    I also hope that you understand that your detractors are the ones with the problems….not Salena. People hate you based on one of these two reasons: either you are a bad or mean-spirited person, or because they find in you what they are lacking because your presence reminds them of their own perceived or real deficits. Unfortunately, you cannot do anything about such people because the best you can do is to be your parents’ daughter. The Great Salena!

    As DJT’s staunch supporter, I just don’t read your articles…I study them.

    Happy belated birthday.
    Be Blessed!
