Go Out And Vote

To The Editor: Vote! It’s not only a privilege, it’s a duty and shame on those too lazy to avail themselves of it; the very ones so eager to complain about our President’s inability to move parts of his agenda forward due to the fact that we allowed an ignorant regressive Congress to be voted […]

Successful Event

To The Editor: I enjoyed Senator Addabbo’s barbecue letter in the Aug. 28 copy of your paper. Senator Addabbo’s barbecue is a big success every year because he has always been a champion of veterans rights and issues.

To The Editor: Republican Conservatives and their Libertarian pseudonym scream, “freedom, freedom, freedom!” When are they going to concede some of that “freedom” to women, even concerning their very own body?! Inconceivable that it also includes their female contingent, who have been so subjugated as to be made blind to the obvious. Shame on those […]

A Case For Fairness

To The Editor: Your coverage of the Albert Baldeo case only carried the Government’s side. You did not mention anything about Mr. Baldeo’s acquittal on the main underlying mail and wire fraud charges. We really must insist that you read the Judge’s instructions. Judge Crotty’s charge to the jury read: “Counts One through Three charge […]
