Editorial: It seems to us

Former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick this week won the job as starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins.

Fitzpatrick, 36, will have been the starter for three of the four AFC East teams: Miami, Buffalo and the New York Jets.

To complete the quadfecta, the Harvard graduate would have to someday come home to New England and start for the Patriots. Our suggestion to Tom Brady: Don’t get too comfortable.

Twitter giveth and Twitter taketh away.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is surely learning that lesson as Columbia University urges her to stop blocking her critics on the social media platform. She should listen: The university’s Knight First Amendment Institute successfully argued in court that President Trump was violating free speech rights by banishing his own critics.

While AOC has legitimate security worries – brought on by overheated and irresponsible comments – the fact is that, like Trump, she invites criticism and cannot ethically or constitutionally silence it.
It’s not that way we do things.

It’s every parent’s sage advice to the family as a road trip beckons, yet officials in New Hampshire are objecting. The Department of Motor Vehicles has sent a letter to Wendy Auger, asking her to surrender the vanity license plate that has marked her vehicle for 15 years. The DMV sniffs that the plate violates state requirements.

“I’ve been a mom for 27 years and I’ve been saying this for 27 years,” Auger was quoted by United Press International.

The plate? PB4WEGO. Read it out loud.

Then, again, it wouldn’t have made difference on this outing. Antonio De La Rosa, a 50-year-old Spaniard, had a little time on his hands so, UPI reports, he did some paddleboarding in San Francisco. He stopped 76 days later – when he arrived at the Hawaiian island of Molokai.

It’s not your everyday paddleboard, of course, equipped as it is with a sleeping cabin and solar panels to power his GPS device and other equipment. So it was a breeze. Right?
