Enough with the increases and cuts
Re MTAs horrific scenario, April 30: I cannot believe the MTA wants two fare hikes in the same year. It is absolutely outrageous that they are doing this to us, the riding public, who use the subway and bus on a daily basis. First, they want to raise the fare, and second they want to cut service. Now theyre talking about eliminating overnight subway service. Ive had it with these increases. Enough!

Why must Bloomy spend so much?
Can our evasive Mayor Bloomberg please explain how hard-core Republican Rudy Giuliani won two mayoral elections in NYC without spending seven times more than his Democratic opponent? Bloombergs entire argument was that he needed to unfairly outspend his competitor by record amounts because NYC is a Democratic city that wont vote Republican.

Kelly responsible for subordinates
Re Commish Kelly bashes cops accused of rape, April 29: This is surprising since Ive always heard that the head of an organization is responsible for the conduct of his subordinates. Does he actually feel that he bears no responsibility for the training and supervision of the troops? Perhaps if he spent less time promoting his reputation as counterterrorism chief and more time running his department this
type of incident would not occur.
