Dear Editor:

(re: Lazer Lou’s 4/8/22 column) As I read anything, my mind races forward; it’s something I can't rein in. Lou, as I was reading your recent column regarding your father, I was already composing a letter to the editor (I do this in my mind all the time but rarely mail them). How could your father be the best of all time when my father was that guy? As I read on and you related the loss of your Dad, I slowed down. Irish, German, Italian, they all shared the same experiences now shared by people from other parts of the world. My father came here a year after your father, was born and spent his whole life between the Bronx and eventually, Rockaway.

Death is to be expected. But even knowing that, when my Dad passed away in 1989

Dear Editor:

It is most unfortunate that the bureaucrats that are running our response to COVID-19 decided to halt the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine because of six cases of a rare blood clot in the brain that might be linked to the vaccine. There were six cases out of nearly seven million doses of the vaccine. The blood clot rate is actually lower than the known rate in the general population. Recall that prior to Election Day last year, Democratic pols including Biden, Harris

Dear Editor:

Who wants to spend the money and time to travel back and forth and pay for something you should be able to get at your local train station? I realize a cut back for services because of COVID may have been necessary but not any longer for seniors!

For some other reason, the A line train stations in this area no longer provide a transfer of the balance on an expiring Senior Metro Card to the new Senior Metro Card.

Give the ability back to the individual stations to provide this

Dear Editor:

  With all the silencing of voices, I appreciate reading opposing views. Many in the medical and scientific fields were absolutely censored for not towing the Fauci (who has made a career out of being wrong) lockdown line. Dr. Galvin's view is shared by many. It seemed obvious by last April that people of a certain age and certain health issues should have been protected. Everybody else should have been back to work with some precautions.

The CDC just released, "it is fine to

Dear Editor:

When MLB went political and moved the Baseball All-Star Game from Atlanta to Denver, they proved two things. 1) MLB does not care about fans, and businesses. 2) They had no problem converging Sports with Politics. This was a calculated blunder which will be felt for years.

Many business owners in Atlanta feel that ROB Manfred (commissioner) of MLB made a quick knee-jerk reaction to legislation passed by both state houses in Georgia. Voter ID was one of the main components of this

Dear Editor:

It's unfortunate that so many people from Rockaway choose to politicize mask wearing.  It has really soured me to going out enjoying the boardwalk when no one wears masks and absolutely no signage acknowledging we are in a pandemic. I visited Bethany Beach, Delaware and signs all over. Rockaway should follow suit.

Dear Editor:

I was dismayed if not surprised to see your pages (Ask The Doc, 4/1/2021) advocating for the debunked wackadoodle science of the Great Barrington Declaration, which advocated for a “herd immunity” solution to COVID-19 rather than any measures that might actually save people’s lives. It might be relevant to let your readers know that the Declaration was funded by a Charles Koch-backed think tank network that’s also behind other bold scientific research such as “climate change isn’t
