Letters to the Editor

Sandra Fluke: Freeloader and parasite

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

To The Editor: Sandra Fluke, the 30-year-old radical feminist activist who Rush Limbaugh wrongly demeaned by calling her “a slut and a prostitute” has, according to the N.Y. Post (3/6), acknowledged that she had enrolled at Georgetown precisely to challenge that Catholic university’s refusal to include contraception in its student health coverage. The demand by [...]

Diplomacy is the answer on Iran

To The Editor: I must disagree with the guest editorial, “A Green Light for Israel.” An attack on Iran by either Israel of the United States would trigger a wave of horrible events, likely ending in a thermonuclear exchange between the nuclear powers, the United States against Russia and China and vice versa. In the [...]

Stone thrown at Engel meant for all Jews

Wednesday, March 7, 2012

To the Editor: The recent article by Miawling Lam, “Attack on Engel, others in Israel fizzles” opens with the following quote: “Vandals hurled a large rock at Congressman Eliot Engel in a dramatic turn of events during his recent visit to a Jewish cemetery in Israel. Engel, fellow Congressman Jerrold Nadler and Executive Vice Chairman [...]

Muslim surveillance—a matter of life or death

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

To The Editor: The main section of the N.Y. Times is divided into three main parts: international news, national news and local news. The international news component gives extensive coverage to events going on all over the world, and has for many years exposed the countless instances of savagery, butchery and murder committed by Muslim [...]

The motorists be damned

To The Editor: Yes, the streets throughout NYC — not just in The Bronx — are in bad shape.  But who are we supposed to complain to.  City Hall?  The mayor doesn’t want to see any cars in NYC.  The Public Advocate?  What does he advocate for the public, anyway?  We motorists need to organize. [...]

Why I’m for Obama

To The Editor: As this is a presidential election year, my vote for President of the United States will go to the incumbent, Barack Obama. Why? President Obama has fought a successful battle against terrorists by the assassinations of Osama Bin Laden and his two top lieutenants. These assassinations have proven that Americans and America [...]

Co-ops need relief from ‘unfunded mandate’

Wednesday, February 22, 2012

To The Editor: We are very pleased to see that Community Board 8 has recognized the urgent need to bring to light the vast inequity imposed by the financial issues associated with the city’s mandated conversion of heating systems away from number 6 fuel by holding a public forum on February 27. While nearly everyone [...]

Questioning the Hebrew Home

To The Editor: I am outraged, once again, about the spending of millions of dollars by The Hebrew Home on everything but direct patient care. My father died there in April 2007 because of a lack of trained caregivers and the lack of a particular piece of equipment specifically needed to prevent a horrifying, gaping [...]

Some questions for local politicians

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

  To The Editor: For many months now, people throughout this country have watched and listened to debates and interviews involving the various Republican candidates for their party’s nomination for President. During that time, these various candidates have been asked many tough, and many times embarrassing questions relating to their positions on many issues. And [...]

Goodbye to Riverdale

To The Editor: After 33 years, it is with great sadness that I have closed the doors on my business, Beauty By Valentina. During that time, children were born, people passed away, newcomers arrived into the neighborhood and others retired—I knew them all. We had good times, good laughs and good memories. I would like [...]
