Storys source had self-serving opinion
Re The Struggle to Shelter, Nov. 21-23: Timely piece on the homeless family problem in these tough economic times, but getting broker Barbara Corcorans opinion to buy Manhattan real estate because it will be expensive once again wasnt surprising. Why dont you get P.C. Richards thoughts on buying a new air conditioner during the next heat wave?

What are the MTA execs going to sacrifice?
Re MTA Unveils the Pain Nov. 21-23: The plan to save the MTA is to charge more for less service. What about telling us what executives and employees plan to give up? Is there no one brave enough to request an audit of their books before mass transit gets worse? Every time they whine about their funds, miraculously they manage to find hundreds of millions.

Obamas cabinet: Out with the old, in with the old
Barack Obamas theme has been change, out with the old and in with the new. But hes filling his cabinet with old hardware and rusty hinges. What happened to new faces and fresh ideas? He needs to have a chat with Dennis Kucinich and Ralph Nader to clear his mind of political junk.

$4 million for bridge could have been better spent
Spending $4 million to rename the Triborough Bridge is frivolous, especially when we are facing economic chaos. There are other priorities for which the money could be used. How about using it to improve MTA so it doesnt have the audacity to increase the fares!
