Originalist judges and our rights

Many thanks to Roy Tedoff in his letter to the editor in the September 20 issue for raising the issue of Republican judges subscribing to “originalist” interpretations of the Constitution. This important issue is neither wonkish nor merely in the theoretical “weeds”.

Reliving the trauma

“Indelible in the hippocampus is the laughter.” “100% certain.” “As sure as I am talking to you now.” These statements, from a victim of sexual assault, will be forever remembered as the words of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Impressive primary turnout

Voter turnout for the New York State primary was impressive by recent historical standards. Some 1.5 million New Yorkers went to the polls, more than twice as many as voted in the midterm primary in 2014, suggesting an electorate that is more engaged than in the past, and more likely to participate in the election in November.

Not a good use of taxpayer money

Regarding your article, “Byway committee votes for Callicoon visitors’ center”:

The building and real property in question is located in Callicoon, NY and it belongs to the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railroad, which the article did not mention.
