""TruthTeller" refuses and/or does not have the capacity to engage in discourse without bullying, without being uncivil, and without being personal -- all frequently stated rules of etiquette for commenting online for The Riverdale Press. I hope …"
"Michael, I do still feel that there is bias in the first portion of the title.
But even more startling in this piece is an assertion by a Martin Galvin, "a criminal defense attorney who is not working on this particular case...", who does …"
""Police get their man"? They apparently believe they have. 50th Precinct Commanding Officer Terence O'Toole is certainly known to target Bronx youth with "rap sheets." Mr. Brown is innocent of this crime until proven guilty of this crime, however, …"
"Mr. Hinman's editorial did not definitively side with Jeffrey Klein, nor does my letter say that it did.
My letter does not say that "we must believe women 100 percent of the time." In fact, it calls for due process and says there will …"

I work with Bronx Climate Justice North and North Bronx Racial Justice, both of which were doing …"
"Hm. Yawn. I'm not responsible for the funding of other groups. But it is important to me and the other folks in the groups I work for/with that we are financially independent -- that we do not take outside funding or funding that is tainted by …"
"Mr. Teller, the only part of all the above that I'm going to bother with is the haplessly repeated fixation about the funding of groups I work with. I am not with Indivisible or Citizen Action, though I wish them well. I am with two grassroots …"
"Hi Michael -- I appreciate the dialogue, thank you. Vis-a-vis your last point about the victimization of men (particularly by other men), I was moved reading the New York Times accounts of the complaints of male models against a few prominent male …"
"In getting lost in the weeds, this editorial does a real disservice to the sacrifice and courage of the many women who have come forward in recent months to tell their stories and demand accountability. The timing is peculiar. The moment that a …"
