Thanks for 9/11 column 

Editor,

Bravo to you for your amazingly accurate, brilliantly insightful, courageous editorial of September 7, entitled “Fighting the Next War.”

I could barely contain my dual emotions of profound sadness and righteous anger as I read his column that perfectly reflects my own observations and sentiments about the deplorable condition of our Nation today.

With each passing day, these vile, omnipotent, corporate plutocrats who totally control our crumbling Nation wreak further death, damage and devastation.

I proudly display a sign on my front porch and on the back of my truck that says “STOP BITCHING, START A REVOLUTION!”

It is indeed way past time for another good old fashioned, authentic revolution – this time to save the very soul of America.

Labor Day really was about Labor

Editor,

Did you enjoy your Labor Day holiday? The reason we celebrate Labor Day is largely because of the contributions  made by unions to the betterment of America’s workers. The numerous beneficial influences of organized labor cannot be ignored.

Most of  the benefits workers now enjoy are directly attributable to unions. To cite but a few: the 40–hr. work week; paid holidays and vacations; sick leave; grievance  procedures, collective bargaining and generally superior wages.

Unfortunately, succeeding generations have come to take those benefits for granted. Those benefits  came about because of unions and soon became the norm for union workers and many non–union workers as well.

All American workers owe a debt of gratitude to Organized Labor for its achievements.

  • Take a closer look at agencies and their staff salaries

    It would help to get a proper perspective if the cuts were to be presented as a percentage of the agency’s total budget. It would also be fair to note what the city’s contribution will be after the proposed cuts.
