Despite some personal lapses, Democrats still treat women better Re Aug. 9 letter, “Real war on women waged by the Dems”: What Timothy Gaffney Sr. seems to be describing are all sexual encounters between men and women in “higher power.” How, again, is that war on women? Most men do not make a woman do anything she doesn’t want, excluding rape and assault. First, I oppose any type of violence toward women. Ted Kennedy should ...

Jasmine Roberts, wake up. Clinton disrespected the office, he was not a great President, he was according to at least one of his victims a rapist. He told another that he bombed a country to take the press off of him and his affairs. As far as the surplus, we had a Republican Senate and Congress, that is why we had a surplus. Also Clinton was in office during the bombing that killed 19 soldiers, Flight 800 that was downed by terrorists and also the first WTC bombing.

Jasmine Roberts-don't let the facts disturb your preconceived notions. No mention of the ongoing Assembly Democratic cesspool? Local machine Democrats care about retaining power and saying anything to hide their sickening tax hikes. The letter concerning A Place In the Pines is equally disturbing. That plot seems ripped from recent Gazette headlines. Instead of defending the indefensible start demanding solutions and drastic changes. Two ostriches with heads firmly in the sand.

@Desiree Pauley,

You make some excellent points and your depiction of "Place Beyond the Pines" was spot on. However, I think that the experience of making that movie in Schenectady was a positive event, overall. First, having this local production of a Hollywood movie might get the attention of other movie producers to make another feature-length film, here. Secondly, that production company spent a lot of money which went into our local economy. Hopefully, the next movie production in Schenectady won't have such a grim narrative but the exposure in its totality was beneficial to our city.
