It certainly would be good if there are documents that don't sell, but reflect upon the person and leader Frank Duci is, that someone considers donating them to the History Center at City Hall to complement the mayor's papers stored in the City Archives.

The best punishment that could be meted out to any individual, once given a fair trial and found guilty, is a lifetime behind bars, freedom gone, no chance for parole, and ample time to reflect upon what he has done. Vengeance is God's, and we teach no one about the value of life by taking another life. Do we not care about his soul? I do not wish to see New York return to the barbaric death penalty.

I'd like the first writer to prove that Obamacare is the reason for the layoffs. It could be the rising costs of health care which is what Obamacare is in part addressing. May I suggest someone look at this company's annual financial reports for some clues. Everyone's so apt to drag "blame it on the government" into the explanation for everything. MVP is a company and like any others, has to look at its finances, and trim costs wherever possible. If rates went up too much, and too many people disenroll, it may not have the revenue it needs to meet its budget, so then it will have to cut costs somewhere. Capital and fixed costs for the building, etc. usually cannot be adjusted downward, so if you have to, you trim staff. I just hope my nieces were not among those laid off....

I just love this independent bookstore, and believe that someone will step up and take over. I just hope that the new owner is a far-sighted and tasteful, and adept, at running Open Door as the Hutchinsons have been. Good luck!

Smoking is not healthy behavior, and contributes to a dangerous as well as unhealthy environment, for the smoker, and for his or her neighbors.
Senior housing in the City consists of multiple-unit dwellings, AND high-rises. We hear about smoking fires all of the time. Such fires in a high-rise would really get the citizens living there into a panic. And a smoking fire, inspite of smoke detectors and linkages to the fire station, would be nasty. I think this is a step towards a safer and healthier environmentfor seniors, and all should be willing to comply with this.

I'd like to see caller ID become a required phone feature regardless of the phone service in NYS, because it is the only real way to know what kind of call is coming in prior to picking up, and one should not have to pay extra for it, not with how much telephone calls already cost us. Remember, at one time touch tone was extra; now it's standard. Caller ID could be the same thing. Cynthia in Schenectady
