Floyd conviction is a wakeup call for U.S.
The extrajudicial murder of George Floyd is a massive wake up call for America.
The professional testimony presented by the prosecution was well prepared and proved the guilt of Derek Chauvin.
America rarely convicts a law enforcement agent; Eric Gardner was murdered on the streets of New York City for selling “loosies “ no charges. The healing of America will take a long time.
Unfortunately, I’m not optimistic that those who continue to resist change will have an epiphany any time soon. America must change if our republic is to survive. E Pluribus Unum.
Enjoyed Barber’s warm spring photo
The wonderful photograph taken by Peter Barber titled “Taking Flight” published on April 21 shows 5-year-old Hakeem Watson with his grandfather, Jesse Watson, flying a kite near the basketball courts in Central Park was delightful. What a wonderful spring image. I loved this warm, human, loving photograph.
Cuomo can’t hide behind Italian-ness
In response to Thomas Koch’s April 15 letter (“Impeachment must be for legit reasons”), Mr. Koch feels that Gov. Cuomo is within his rights to play touchy-feely with everyone because of his Italian background.
Good grief — he is the boss!
You don’t do this to your employees.
If the governor can’t keep his hands to himself, maybe he should go back to Italy where he can hug and kiss to his heart’s content.
