amNewYork Letters to the Editor
Why arent the Yankees making cuts, too?
Ive got two questions for the Emperor of City Hall: 1. If all of NYC must take the pain of our governments failures, what sacrifices are George Steinbrenner and the Yankees making? 2. If Bloomberg is telling the truth that stadiums are so profitable, why do the Yankees need hundreds of millions of our tax dollars? This has got to be the dumbest lie ever. And, if we taxpayers are paying for half of the new Yankee Stadium, why arent we getting half the eventual profits in return? Mike Antoinette better watch his head, because it seems like hes losing it!

Clinton cabinet selection is a good idea for Obama
There is some speculation that Sen. Hillary Clinton could be selected by President -elect Obama for a cabinet post, as maybe secretary of state. Well, if that is true, that would be a most wise decision for she has much to bring to the table and knows many world leaders and is most respected. She would truly be a welcome asset to President Obamas administration. If true, let me say this, You go girl.

Letter writer used some pretty fuzzy math
Re Allisyn Swifts letter Obamas campaign money: Heres some math, Nov. 13: Perhaps you should have mailed Ms. Swift a calculator rather than printing her erroneous letter. If 33 million people had each given $5, the total would have been $165 million, not $1.5 billion claimed by Ms. Swift. Furthermore, the Obama campaign raised $640 million during the campaign (according to the Wall Street Journal), quite a bit more than Swifts claim of $80 million.
