Even with vaccine, still follow protocols
I just got my second and last does of the covid vaccine.
I must say that for the first time in a year I feel that a burden has been lifted and feel a sense of relief and protection.
We will still hunker-DOWN and mask-UP till all ends well.
As Nike says, ”Just Do It!”
It’ll be a “shot in the arm” for us all.

Unwanted advances only bad if repeated
Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been under attack by a number of females who claimed he sexually harassed them, but not one has identified that this happened repeatedly.
It appears as though the governor, by his own admission, may have flirted with women as many, many men do, but quickly shut his flirtations down when they were not reciprocated.
Thus, if you read Webster’s Dictionary’s meaning of the word “harass,” you will find it says “to attack repeatedly.”
Therefore it is ridiculous and a waste of New Yorker’s state tax money to investigate something that is clearly not within the meaning of the word harass, as the governor did not REPEATEDLY flirt with these women as they themselves have indicated.
Please government officials, can’t we find other areas more worthy of spending the state’s tax revenue on and make New York residents proud?

Use of identifiers only serves to divide
The media continues to use racist terms like Asian Americans, African Americans, Mexican Americans and Anglo Americans.
These words separate people. Why aren’t we all Americans?
Why let repeat offenders go free?
Regarding the article (“New York man busted three times in a single day”) in the March 18 Gazette: What is wrong with our system if all you do is give them an appearance ticket? Why bother and stop him at all if you are not going to arrest him?
Maybe the next time you come across this person, he would have killed someone if he were driving impaired. Also what happens when he doesn’t show up for his three court dates? Give him another ticket?
There is something very wrong with this system, and I hope our politicians will change it.
