Letters to the Editor for Aug. 21

Our beautiful planet has become our polluted planet I was recently given a pamphlet, “Hudson River — Health Advice on Eating Fish You Catch.” The reality is you can’t safely eat any of them because they’re all poisoned to some degree with PCBs. Catch them if you like, but it is safer for you to release them than take them home to cook. The mercury level in the Adirondack fish from the unfiltered emissions of ...

RE: Doris on earlier bar closing. I was a bartender for years, and I can truthfully say, 1 hour isnt going to make a bit of difference. What will, is more responsibility of the bartenders to say "your cut off". 3 simple words. I pissed off many a local, but at least they are alive today.
Also....one thing I always told my kids, nothing good happens after midnight.

And Lois--for those people who DO make a commitment to a pet: Please SPAY and NEUTER your dog or cat! It is NOT cute to breed your pets! Your children do NOT need to experience the birth of puppies or kittens! Your female dog or cat does NOT need to be bred in order to make her feel "complete." Pet overpopulation is a serious problem. Also, I feel so sad for people who lose their homes and can't take their pets with them. They who might have been committed to their pets and have to be separated from them--how heartbreaking is that?

Your comment about nothing good happens after midnight supports the movement to change bars closings in New York State from 4AM to 1AM. Each hour you spend drinking adds .02 to your blood alcohol content. At .08 you can be arrested for DWI and at .04 you have lost your peripheral vision. So you are absolutely right.

Will1960...not really.
It doesnt matter if its a bar, a party, or just hanging out at a friends house. If the bars close early, drinkers will either chug before last call, or just go elsewhere. And my kids weren't of legal age to go to bars, when I began drumming the "nothing good.." speech.
I didnt even realize upstate HAD bars open till 4am anymore.
