Standard As Spoiler

Standard As Spoiler

To The Editor:   Your editorial “Scaturro as Spoiler” (August 3rd) is divorced from reality.  Unlike your description, Scaturro built the only campaign that could defeat Carolyn McCarthy, and he did not base his candidacy on a sense of entitlement.  He built a foundation of support in the community by working as hard as any [...]

O’Doul an Anti-Semite? To the Editor, I have a complaint about one of your writers “Danny O’Doul.” His articles have a tone and context of thinly veiled anti-Semitism i.e. The “Chometz” article of the April 6-19, 2012 issue. All of his articles aimed at the Jews in this neighborhood are extremely offensive and should never [...]
