Letter: Quarantine is the only way to contain Ebola Letter: Quarantine is the only way to contain Ebola To the editor:

This is in reference to allowing fatal contagious diseases into the country.

I don’t believe that any country has ever allowed a contagious, fatal disease into it, until now. Add to that, there is no known cure. At this time, there is the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, and Saudi Arabia is not allowing people in from certain countries, to prevent Ebola from spreading.

Letter: A few casino execs get the gold mine; all others get the shaft Letter: A few casino execs get the gold mine; all others get the shaft To the editor:

The lead article in the Oct. 3 edition of the Atlantic City Press asserts $700,000 will be split among key Revel employees from proceeds of the casino’s sale. Meanwhile, thousands of laid-off employees are hoping for an extension to their unemployment benefits. A few folks get the gold mine while everybody else gets the shaft.

Furthermore, Taj Mahal muckamucks are threatening to close their casino if they are not allowed to trade union pension payments for 401(k) plans.

I guess it’s no pain for the execs, but lots of pain for the labor force that makes everything work.
