Letters to the Editor — Sept. 12, 2022


Migrant college students
Simply to be clear: Over the previous three years, New York Metropolis faculties have misplaced 1000’s of youngsters to personal faculties and households shifting (“Migrant increase in faculties,” Sept. 9).

Some 1,400 (and counting) have been added through migrants touring to New York.

Since federal and state funding for faculties relies on enrollment, the Division of Schooling must be welcoming migrants to the town. Certainly, Faculties Chancellor David Banks made that clear: “As the colleges get extra college students, they may get extra funds.”

Mayor Adams would then be off the hook for his cuts to training within the metropolis’s funds.

Memphis homicide
There’s something essentially unsuitable with our judicial system. The case of crazed Memphis lunatic Ezekiel Kelly is a harrowing instance (“Tenn. ‘shoot spree’ arrest,” Sept. 8).

As The Submit reported on Thursday, Kelly served simply 21 months of a three-year sentence regarding costs of tried first-degree homicide, reckless endangerment and different offenses.

A sentence of solely three years for such heinous crimes is unhealthy sufficient. However for the system to launch him after he’d served solely 21 months is meaningless.

Kelly is now a suspect in a murderous rampage that terrorized and locked down Memphis for hours. He crossed state strains into Mississippi throughout his insane killing spree, giving this case federal jurisdiction. Kelly and others like him should not be coddled by our authorized system.

Masks drop
I notice Gov. Hochul is working for her re-election and that should issue into all her selections (“A face-free journey,” Sept. 8).

Nevertheless, I don’t imagine that eradicating the masks mandate goes to assist her politically.

Her opponent and his occasion have opposed all mandates for the reason that starting of the COVID outbreak. It’s clearly an imposition and annoyance to look at the restrictions, however it’s vital. It’s one factor to loosen up the restrictions in eating places and outlets the place individuals can maintain a secure distance. It’s one other factor on mass transit the place individuals are typically bunched collectively.

A pacesetter should make an unpopular stand as a result of it’s proper, not supposedly politically expedient.

Music reminiscences
I beloved studying the article in regards to the a hundredth anniversary of WABC radio (“Central station,” Sept. 7).

Radio was central to my childhood and teenage years. My technology by no means went wherever with out our valuable “transistor” radios. Cousin Brucie from ABC, Harry Harrison from WMCA and Murray the Okay from WINS had been like household. I cherish the reminiscences they created for me.

I used to be at Forest Hills Stadium in 1964 when the Beatles got here to america for the primary time. My voice was recorded when a number of of us managed to draw B. Mitchell Reed’s (the evening’s emcee) consideration. So, for at the very least a 12 months, our voices — screaming incoherently — began his present. Now, that’s a reminiscence few can boast!

Thanks to the entire DJs who gave my technology a number of the finest instances of our lives.

RIP Bernard Shaw
I’m completely devastated by the passing of Bernard Shaw (“CNN’s Bernard Shaw, 82, dies,” Sept. 9).

He was a real icon in journalism, a person of large class and dignity and a consummate skilled. My deepest prayers and condolences exit to his household and pals.
