    Often in writing or speaking, one struggles to search for what the French refer to as le mot juste, the right word. At this moment, almost immediately after the disturbing report of the FBI invading the family home of a God-fearing, American father of seven, I find it impossible to craft a p…

      As a fan of Buffalo News columnist Rod Watson, it is always disturbing to read his myopic views on gun control. Like many of gun advocates, any attempt to address the nearly 40,000 deaths every year from gun violence is seen as an infringement on their rights. It sounds childish if it wasn’t…

        It’s with a great sense of loss that I’m witnessing the start of the demolition of the Great Northern grain elevator. I’m not an architect, engineer, historian or art expert. Rather, my connection to this aspect of Buffalo’s industrial heritage is personal. My father was a member of the Grai…

          The Biden administration’s recent climate provisions in the so called “Inflation Reduction Act” do nothing in the slightest to address the pollution and greenhouse gas emissions created by China. Instead of focusing on limiting the emissions of the world’s largest polluter, i.e., China, (whi…

            I am amazed that the pundits and others haven’t figured out why Donald Trump did what he did with classified and secret documents. His purpose was to deny Joe Biden a chance to review the items, and this would in some way hurt his presidency.

              There was a letter in the paper on Sept. 27 suggesting that governors Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott send their migrants to Western New York to punish us for our predominantly progressive values. The author is hilariously misinformed. Does he not know that smaller cities around the country are…

              Laws are being passed by left-wing ideologues with views completely outside mainstream political thought. Mandating impractical, extremely expensive battery-powered school buses. Banning the use of natural gas in New York State, and enacting clearly unconstitutional gun control laws with zer…

              My wife and I have often vacationed in Florida for two weeks at a time in early spring. We’ve enjoyed the beaches, the parks, the wildlife and birds. We like cities we’ve visited such as Sarasota, Key West, Fort Myers and Sanibel Island. But we would never want to live there full time.

              Joe Lucenti’s Another Voice piece was spot on, and blissfully refreshing. We have raised several generations of “the fragile people” who cannot deal with debate or linear thinking. Facts are the enemy. This entitlement culture has created, from childhood on, individuals who cannot understand…

              I want to thank the city for installing speed bumps on neighborhood streets. As a regular pedestrian in several city neighborhoods, I have had too many near-misses, and I’ve seen too many egregious traffic violations, to be anything but grateful that the city is finally doing something about…

              Our Bills played their hearts out on Sunday in Miami. As I see it, the Dolphins had an unfair advantage as their side of the field appeared to be in the shade for the whole game. It was reported the temperature at the game was 90 degrees, 100 on the field, and high humidity. The Dolphins wer…

              Ron DeSantis used vulnerable and destitute Venezuelans who arrived in the U.S. fleeing the deprived and unlivable conditions of their despotic controlled homeland. Using lies and broken promises, he transported them with a blurred pledge of safety to Martha’s Vineyard. That malicious stunt w…

              As the mid-term election nears, the contest in the new 23rd Congressional District seems more and more important. The heavily Republican make-up of the district would lead one to believe that the GOP candidate should have smooth sailing to victory. But is that what the country really needs r…

              There is so much news to draw attention to: the wrongful demolition of the Great Northern, the change in format of the Buffalo News, the misuse of the term “mafia’ by ignorantly using this criminal connotation with our wonderful Bills team, and anything Trump related, and I could go on.

              Everyone in Western New York appreciates all the purchases and improvements that Doug Jemal has brought to our area, but let’s go one better. The Buffalo Bills are one of the top teams in the NFL and the Sabres are on the way up, so wouldn’t it be nice if Jemal could bring an NBA or MLB team…

              I keep reading about the tragic pedestrian-auto accidents which occur when light is dimming and darkness takes over until dawn, during which times seeing a pedestrian crossing a road/street has attempted crossing outside of the crosswalk, against a light, believing that they can make it. Who…

              The Buffalo News reporting on the many union-related stories has been excellent. As the son of a union steward, husband of a union rep, and former member of both public and private sector unions, the push to unionize and the negotiations for improved union contracts is of great interest.

              Regarding the Sept. 22 article, “Brace Yourself: Heating costs are going to soar this winter,” there’s no disputing National Fuel. Gas prices are going through the roof. Besides disruptions from Ukraine conflict, with Europe breaking their gas reliance on Russia and depending on the United S…
