Pol’s sexism stunt

As a very long time feminist, I discovered Carolyn Maloney crying “misogyny” and “ sexism” offensive to girls and a rollback to an earlier period (“It’s a Jerry-atric win,” Aug. 24).

I believe Maloney must dig just a little deeper and mirror on why she could have misplaced.

Does she actually imagine after years of serving in Congress that— in 2022 — misogyny is the one motive for her loss? Possibly she ought to mirror on her marketing campaign technique, which was about “being a lady” as a substitute of her insurance policies.

As a voter and a longtime feminist, gender has completely nothing to do with how I solid my vote. Working on “being a lady” has all the pieces to do with identification politics, which is regressive, not progressive.

Protection of Maine

To my expensive Cindy Adams — thanks in your gross description of your trip to the state of Maine (“Welcome to Vacationland,” Aug. 22).

I’ve usually puzzled what I might do to maintain people from visiting and destroying that stunning state. Voilà — cue your opinion piece. Maybe the vacationers will heed your recommendation and go elsewhere.

You might be, nonetheless, appropriate in your notion that Mainers are well mannered, and the meals is scrumptious. However I’m pondering maybe you went to locations the place many guests refill the sidewalks, seashores, roads and eating places with their so-called fats behinds. Mainers often avoid vacationer traps in the course of the summer time season until they personal a enterprise.

As a result of I’ll let you know, as a frequent traveler of the Boothbay space, you might not be farther from the reality. Mainers are match, enjoyable, relaxed and unpretentious — therefore the shortage of ties.

Guess I gained’t be seeing you in Maine any time quickly. However it’s unhappy that you simply take into account New York civilization, particularly of late.

Pitiful requirements

Karol Markowicz is rightly “appalled” by the truth that a highschool scholar solely has to attain 19.8 % on the New York state algebra examination to go (“Move the Regents Simply by Guessing,” Submit­Opinion, Aug. 22). Nevertheless, she shouldn’t be shocked.

Regents examinations had been as soon as the gold commonplace for evaluating the educational competence of highschool college students in New York. These days are lengthy gone.

The weak-kneed academicians and politicians that allowed the watering-down of educational requirements in New York state over the previous few many years ought to be blamed for making a travesty out of a once-prestigious instructional requirements.

It’s encouraging that Faculties Chancellor David Banks has executed job getting the academic institution to pay attention extra on tutorial fundamentals and fewer on the nonessential frills that look good however do little to enhance faculty efficiency.

The central mission of public schooling is to supply the talents to perform in a fast-changing and complicated society. This may solely occur if public colleges re-establish and keep excessive Regents requirements.

Cop loss of life tragedy

I need to commend The Submit for publishing Ann Dorn talking out in regards to the assassination of her husband, Capt. David Dorn (“BLM, VP Killed My Hubby,” Aug. 24).

Essentially the most disturbing a part of the article got here if you wrote that “Black Lives Matter and the vice chairman’s workplace didn’t instantly reply to The Submit’s request for remark.”

I’d have thought that somebody from BLM or the VP’s workplace would have supplied some sympathy to Capt. Dorn and the remainder of his household, however I suppose his life didn’t matter to them.
