The Electoral College should be eliminated. more
How ironic that in the same issue that the editor of this newspaper writes a close-to 2,000-word Point of View column excusing grammatical mistakes in his newspaper by asserting that “to err is human,” a front-page article in the same issue intended to extol the educational values of DeWitt Clinton High School by citing the accomplishments of one of its graduates, Stan Lee — who went on to create many comic book characters, including Spider-Man, Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk — quotes the reaction of a current-day student at the school as saying she “didn’t know that he had went to the school.” more
I am at a loss to know what to do with certain thoughts and feelings following the midterm elections. more
The Dec. 16 edition of “60 Minutes” on CBS presented a major segment on the scourge of plastics. more

If Councilman Andrew Cohen is even considering naming a street after a business, he should at least let the residents of Kingsbridge vote on who they think is the most worthy contender. more
Like lemmings heading over the cliff, in near unanimity, the board of director of the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park has elected to terminate the participation of 13 of its active directors in the hope that this deed will somehow bring to fruition the repeatedly delayed merger with the park’s conservancy. more
To quote Theodore Roosevelt: “It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood.” more
