Letters to the Editor for Aug. 2

Facts don’t justify editorial’s harsh judgment of Paterno Your July 25 editorial [“Penn State, Paterno get their just deserts”] was way off base. As heinous as [assistant coach Jerry] Sandusky’s acts were, he was still given the opportunity to defend himself. [Head coach] Joe Paterno was never given this opportunity.

Go to California and grow big, unhealthy and be free.

To Chris Patricca. I feel your pain! I've also enjoyed your letters to the editor over the years. Your independent thinking and love of freedom will be missed. You join the 200,000 residents each year leaving this over-regulated/over-taxed state. Best to you.

To Justapto: Did you read my letter? Did I mention gorging on transfats, cigarettes, alcohol and drugs? If you don't agree with my move, that's fine. But, please get your facts straight. I was not insulting to you, why do you feel the need to be insulting to me?

To Muggy and Biwemple - thank you for your support.

Chris Patricca is making the right move. If all the whiners moved out of NY, it would be a nicer place to live. Or, you could fight to change things and make NY a better place. I'm sure Florida has plenty of faults, too. So put up, shut up or move out!
