Letters to the Editor —May 1, 2022

Holocaust classesI learn with disappointment {that a} 2020 survey discovered widespread ignorance of the Holocaust amongst younger folks, and that for some purpose a invoice was derailed which might have examined how properly New York colleges are educating college students about “the wholesale slaughter of European Jews by Nazi Germany” (“Holocaust ed. invoice is nixed,” April 26).

I used to be educated within the New York Metropolis public faculty system within the Sixties and ’70s. In a college meeting, all of us considered a really graphic movie of the horrors of the Holocaust. I don’t really feel “traumatized,” and there was no grievance from anybody I’m conscious of that displaying this movie was deemed inappropriate.

It’s mentioned that “seeing is believing.” I’m grateful to a superior workers of educators who made certain that not one graduate of my faculty left with out full information and understanding of this abominable and shameful occasion in human historical past.

Followers’ freakoutYankee followers exhibited horrible conduct following final Saturday’s sport (“Wall-climbing OF cursed out followers: vid,” April 26).

First off, Guardians outfielder Myles Straw was out of line by climbing the wall to confront followers. Second, you don’t throw rubbish on the sphere, aiming it at opposing gamers. These responsible, if caught on digicam, ought to face lifetime stadium bans.

The Yankee group must beef up safety measures. This might have escalated into one other “Malice on the Palace” when spectators clashed with gamers at a Pistons-Pacers sport in Auburn Hills, Mich. that turned ugly.

‘Sanctuary’ follyOne other horrific crime was dedicated by somebody who’s illegally dwelling in the USA (“ ‘Stabber’ had ‘killer’ style,” April 26).

Sanctuary cities have created areas the place criminals who break into this nation can stay free to trigger ache and struggling. It is rather unhappy that this man who was protected in a so-called “sanctuary metropolis” was in a position to be right here to commit this hideous act and convey a lot ache to this household.

We should implement the legal guidelines we now have. If cities wish to defend these monsters that cross our borders, they should pay for disregarding federal legislation.

One technique to deliver them to heel is to disclaim them federal funding. We want the political will to do that. We have to vote for leaders with the center to observe by way of and use our legal guidelines to take away this harmful aspect from our society.

Catherine AdagoManhattanAirport madnessThe Submit is appropriate that no person is proud of how issues are continuing on the East Hampton airport (“Combat on the tarmac,” April 25).

Regardless of all of the griping, although, not that a lot will really change, and from my understanding, the city is just not stopping the sale of leaded gasoline, because it ought to.

In addition to the environmental harm from a gasoline that was discontinued over 25 years in the past for vehicles, it additionally is simply wanted for lots of the smaller/older planes that create a good quantity of the noise complaints.

Furthermore, the complaints from different cities like Southampton are a bit hypocritical. A research carried out final 12 months confirmed that 40% of the folks touchdown at KHTO airport usually are not touring to East Hampton. Most of these flyers are seemingly headed to Southampton, a bigger city that has a really small heliport and no airport.

Perhaps as a substitute of counting on smaller cities to the west and east of it, Southampton ought to get its act collectively and supply actual air-transport companies for its personal residents.
