amNewYork Letters to the Editor
Terms should have been agreed to before bailout
Resignation letters should have been the first order of business before a single dime was paid out. Starting with the CEO, board of directors and financial officers. Otherwise let them declare bankruptcy, get reorganized and let the government put people in place who wont give bonuses. Didnt anyone in the Obama administration think this through before turning Pennsylvania Avenue into the yellow brick road?

Gov. Paterson is not listening to the Senate
Re Guv to Senate: Work together for MTA, March 18: I thought the purpose of an elected legislature was to engage in debate and come up with reasonable solutions to problems. Tolls on the free East River bridges are opposed by many. Under the circumstances, our un-elected governor needs to realize that the Senate has come up with a reasonable compromise to an almost annual problem the MTA claiming it needs more money.

Obamas Leno visit a plea for favorable opinion?
Whats a president to do? With his popularity sagging and the nations
confidence in him on the decline, Obama is about to do the only natural thing for a president to do go on Leno! Last month he went on a city-to-city tour to try to sell his economic plan now hes planning a media blitz. If I were the networks, I would think twice about losing all that revenue theyre better off airing reruns of Law & Order.
