To the editor:

The entire coastline of New Jersey is going to be ruined by the Army Corps of Engineers and their like-it-or-not attitude with building dunes. Dunes wash away. It's like dropping money into the ocean.

To the editor,

Wow! I read your story, “A story of terror and murder” in your Nov. 7 edition of the Wildwood Leader. My name is Sean Breslin, and my aunt was Doris Breslin, that you referred to in the story. I’m 52 years old and was never told about this crime. I read your article with great interest and just ordered the book. I guess every family has secrets, but mine was mind-blowing.

Buried in a meandering anecdote, a recent Gazette letter to the editor by Kevin McKinney turned the allegory of George Orwell's "Animal Farm" on its head.

Orwell despised socialism. His works warn of its dangers. Ever wonder why he chose the year 1984 in his novel on English Socialism ("IngSoc")? It's the centennial anniversary of the foundation of the Fabian Society, an early socialist organization.

The saints came marching in for Cozy Morley on Friday and he had them laughing all the way to the great audience in the sky.

The curtain came down on the life of Thomas Francis Morley at the age of 87, leaving behind a heritage as a comedian, a musician, a nightclub owner and a benefactor of seashore culture. For many of the legions he entertained since he was 17 years old, Cozy Morley was to the Wildwoods what Bob Hope was to the nation.
