Planes and birds can share the skies
Re Andy Bellizzi, Get rid of the dangerous geese, July 2-5: Just what would he suggest remove every bird from the skies? Not only is it not certain that it was a goose that was involved in the latest incident referred to, but the Port Authoritys vile gassing of resident Canada geese is far from an answer to any perceived problem. Birds and planes have been sharing the skies since the first plane was launched. One plane goes down with no casualties, thanks to an experienced pilot and the answer is immediately to kill. It never occurs to selfish humans that perhaps there are just too many planes in the sky!

Enough with the Jackson stories
Im sick of hearing about Michael Jackson, his various ex-wives, his various plastic surgeries and his drug cocktails. The country is in a recession and soldiers are being killed in Iraq, yet Michael Jacksons death has been a headline for the past week. Only here can an accused pedophile and drug addict be worshipped like hes the Messiah.

Cant blame Palin for leaving job
How can you blame Sarah Palin for quitting? She cant step out of her front door these days without being sued for conflict of interest. Shes done more as governor of Alaska than most politicians do in their entire careers. Shes certainly better than our governor.
