Letter to the Editor: What’s Wrong in America?

To the Editor:

From what I see, the problem is dishonesty, hypocrisy, race baiting, and blind hatred. It appears that many of the noble ‘gentlemen’ and ‘gentle ladies’ we have elected and sent to Washington have sold their souls for power, fortune and fame.

These are very sad days for America. Twitter and Facebook are trying hard to erase Freedom of Speech and President Trump's memory. Many of our leaders in Washington sit and do nothing but exude negativity and only spit out vitriol. The focus should be on seeking solutions to our problems. They should heed the advice of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy and seek "good faith, good will and an open hand" if America is to return to sanity before it's too late.

To the Editor: It has come to my attention through friends who work in the New York City public schools that this year, due to the fact that Orthodox Easter is May 5, and Roman Catholic Easter is on March 31, New York City public school students and staff will not have off on Orthodox Good Friday as they have had in the past when the holidays were a week apart, for example, or when Orthodox Easter happened to coincide with the school system’s spring break.
