Letter: New York 4th Congressional District Republican Primary

Friday, 10 September 2010 00:00
I’ve seen a couple letters to the editor in local papers asking Frank Scaturro to quit the Republican race for Congress. I was amazed. Then I received a piece of literature at my doorstep from Mr. Scaturro’s opponent, Fran Becker, personally attacking Mr. Scaturro. I have also attended last Tuesday’s debate at the Hewlett-Woodmere library.

Anniversary of September 11

In the wake of the saddest moment in our nation’s history, members of Long Island’s family came to the beach at Point Lookout and gazed to the west in shock and disbelief. The weeks following the attacks of September 11th witnessed neighbors returning to the waters of the Atlantic in deep reflection. The soothing waves cresting the shore, the infinite horizon of the ocean and the warm sparkling sands has drawn so many of us back on an annual pilgrimage to this location on the anniversary of 9-11.

Political Correctness — Off the Rails

Oscar Wilde, the celebrated satirist, once wrote “the only duty we have to history is to rewrite it.” I note this little jibe among the criticisms, fast and furious, being directed by some of our political leaders at the benighted rabble (their constituents) who have dared to raise objections about building a 15-story high mosque/Islamic center just 600 feet from where the rubble of the Twin Towers had lain.

America’s Complex History

Is there anything left to be said on the 65th anniversary of dropping the atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki? Surprisingly, the answer is ‘yes.’ Not because there are any new, relevant facts that have surfaced, but because each generation, in the context of their own life experience, looks at the event through their own prism rather than the time in which decisions were made.

Veterans Administration Plans to Improve Care

For Our Veterans Suffering From PTSD

Earlier this week, Secretary of Veterans Affairs (VA) Eric K. Shinseki announced a critical step toward easing the process for veterans seeking health care and disability compensation for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  The new rules will make it easier for veterans – including those who may have been denied benefits in the past – to receive the care and benefits they need and deserve.
