Letter to the editor: Do not trust Russia

January 21, 2017

Does President Donald Trump trust Communist Russia, but distrust our intelligence agencies? Will Trump stand up to Russia, an adversary of the US, a country that wants to spread its Communist totalitarianism to Europe, the Middle East and North America?  Trump might be hesitant to admit Russia hack...

Letter to the editor: Autopsy of Clinton’s loss: Staff never learned

Donald Moskowitz

December 7, 2016

I am perturbed that Hillary Clinton and her campaign staff are blaming FBI Director James Comey for her election defeat. Director Comey sent out a letter to Congress 11 days prior to the election reopening the investigation into Clinton’s emails. Two days before the election, he stated that there wa...

Letter to the editor: I’m ready for a Trump presidency

November 22, 2016

We have to support Donald Trump so he can hopefully perform well as President. He won the election, and a large segment of the U.S. population has spoken. I agree with many of the policies he wants to implement, and I believe he will stop the nasty rhetoric that he used in the primaries and the general ...

Letter to the editor: The Founding Fathers got it right

November 16, 2016

The 2016 presidential election is behind us and many are surprised – some disappointed and others jubilant. Criticism of the Electoral College by both sides has become the bold new national sentiment. Surely, it is antiquated. Surely, it must go. Surely, we can do better. And we can! The Founding Fathers w...

Letter to the editor: “Micro-aggressions:” too much, too soon

November 10, 2016

Dear Trustees, As a “Free American,” from my earliest days, I have been greatly irritated by “group punishments” inflicted for one or a small group of those in whichever place I was subject to authority of those too lazy (or tyrannical) to detect offenders and selectively punish only them. ...

Letter to the editor: No consistency, no contributions

November 2, 2016

Dear Acting President Kelly, Many Suffolk alumni are furious beyond measure that the university has spent millions of dollars for presidents that come and go. Six presidents in six years when the average tenure of a university president is five years. Is that our best use of resources? When alums r...
