Kindred spirits in quest for vaccine
Mr. Kremzier, I think I love you. Reading your Jan. 25 letter (“Seeking alternative ways to get vaccine”) was the first time I had a good laugh in quite some time.
I too am among the “vulnerable population” and believe that my vaccination will be the last or next to last in New York state.
Given that, would you mind terribly if I joined you on April 1, 2050, on the dark side of the moon?
Perhaps Mr. G. Reaper will allow us to have coffee together before he plies his trade.
I would certainly enjoy a conversation with someone whose mind and humor are as sharp as yours.
Stay well, sir.
Sheriff Zurlo needs to do his job better
Whitewash, lazy, inept, apathy?
All those words apply to Saratoga County Sheriff Michael Zurlo’s brilliant conclusion on a coronavirus super spreader party held in Wilton at the home of adult teachers involving underage drinking (and who knows what else).
Zurlo says 12 people attended the party, but none would be interviewed.
Warren County officials, who got involved because most of the minor children live there, presented Zurlo with social media and photographic evidence, and interviewee statements showing 50 or more attendees.
Zurlo obviously subscribes to the “see and hear no evil” police manual, since not one criminal charge has been levied. Can’t alienate potential voters.
This sheriff proudly proclaimed years ago he would not enforce some provisions of the SAFE Act nor the (albeit silly) Thanksgiving celebration limit imposed by executive order.
He must have taken his oath of office with his right hand on a Mad magazine.
Zurlo during the 2020 election campaign applied his crime-fighting expertise to gleefully join his now-disgraced pal, Rep. Elise Stefanik, on a campaign rally stage in Wilton where, one reporter observed, the mostly unmasked, shoulder-to-shoulder crowd was guarded by several deputies.
The rally was on private property and taxpayers paid the bill for Stefanik’s “private security,” complements of a double-dipping sheriff who collects a taxpayer-funded $62,010 pension (SeeThroughNY), a six-figure taxpayer-funded salary, the Cadillac of health care benefits and initially accepted more taxpayer money from the county’s later-aborted illegal pandemic pay scandal of summer 2020.
No criminal charges filed there, either.
Defund (just) the sheriff!
