Fare hike: New Yorkers must say enough
The MTA board is right; this fare hike is absolutely draconian. Its a shame that they couldnt vote accordingly. It is unjust to increase the fares again on already cash-strapped New Yorkers. Especially when the MTA chief himself makes $300,000 a year. It is time that New Yorkers stand up together and say, Enough! I urge a boycott of the MTA as soon as this fare hike takes effect.

Who will build the tanks if Detroit tanks?
If the auto industry goes out of business while D.C. continues to mull over its bailout, whos going to build our tanks and other military vehicles? The Chinese?

Caroline has same ideals as New Yorkers
I am excited that Caroline Kennedy wishes to fill her uncles Senate seat, which is now occupied by Hillary Clinton, who supported the Iraq war. By backing Barack Obama, Kennedy cant be accused of sexism or carpetbagging. Being a courageous citizen who has experienced tragedy, she chose to stop further tragedies.

Obama cabinet is same ol Washington
Obamas cabinet selections have come from the same tired political pork barrel. What happened to his call for change? He could make amends by naming Robert Kennedy Jr. to head the Dept. of the Interior, along with his cousin Caroline Kennedy in the Senate.
