To the editor:

How sick is America? Very sick.

When 5-year-olds are given guns and politicians can’t agree that this is not right. When the second amendment is misinterpreted and abused by these some people. When some individuals earn a billion dollars annual and so many others starve on a daily basis.

To the editor:

As Rahm Emanuel once said “you never want a serious crisis to go to waste.”

I love New York, but Cape May stole my heart

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

Written by Opinion Tuesday, August 14, 2012 01:00 am

To the editor:
