Still hopeless on NYC’s homeless
New York City Transit President Sarah Feinberg minced no words Sunday in slamming the homeless advocates who “have sort of decided that the subway is a reasonable place for folks to live.” “The answer should never be that someone lives on a bench or someone lives in a tunnel,” she told WABC radio. Darn right....

The wrong time to enforce the new plastic-bag law
Sometimes, officials are too eager to move after a media exposé. Case in point, the reaction of the state Department of Environmental Conservation to reporting by The City that no grocery or bodega had been fined for ignoring the new ban on single-use plastic shopping bags. Boom: Within hours, DEC announced it had issued 12...

Hollywood’s hypocritical, eye-rolling protest of the Golden Globes
Such perfect timing, now that viewership has tanked and there is seemingly no awards show — not the Oscars or the Grammys or the CMAs or the SAGs or anything, really — that America wants to see.

Violence is Abbas’ way of distracting attention and seeking concessions from Biden
President Joe Biden is determined to reverse everything President Donald Trump did — not least, what many Democrats consider his misguided tilt toward Israel. Yet this week the world got a good look at what overturning Trump’s policies there means, with the eruption of fresh clashes of violence in Jerusalem, new missile attacks and fires...

Letters to the Editor — May 11, 2021
The Issue: A shooting in Times Square that left three bystanders injured, including a 4-year-old girl. It is disheartening to read the front-page article “Times Square mayhem” (May 9).

Kids will pay a steep price for this War on Merit in schools
The War on Merit in America’s schools is spreading — and threatening to take an ever-bigger toll on kids’ education. Last week, California’s Department of Education rolled out a draft framework for teaching math to K-12 students. The framework contains 13 chapters, most focused on (no joke) achieving “equity” through mathematics instruction. It would no...

Team Biden controls the narrative and other commentary
From the left: Team Biden Controls the Narrative President Donald Trump “called the media the enemy of the people, but all politicians hate the media who cover them,” quips New York magazine’s Olivia Nuzzi. President Biden’s press staffers “still resent the harsh coverage” he got amid the Democratic primaries, and the “spirit of joylessness and...

The theory that COVID-19 escaped from a lab may not be so far-fetched
Nicholas Wade is an author and former science writer for The New York Times.  The SARS-CoV-2 virus has disrupted people’s lives around the world for more than a year. But there’s no clear answer on one of the most important things about it: where it came from.  In fact, if you brush away all the...

Data proves it: Pandemic is no excuse for NYC’s rising tide of violent crime
Last Thursday into Friday, four New Yorkers were shot dead, in four incidents, within 24 hours — followed on Saturday by a triple shooting in Times Square. This is 1980s-level crime, and the city is getting used to it with alarming alacrity. Mayor Bill de Blasio’s answer to this is that there’s not much we can do. “Our entire...

How Bill de Blasio is sabotaging NYC’s next mayor
Mayor Bill de Blasio calls it his “Recovery Budget,” but it’s actually a sad bid to put some shine on his legacy while sabotaging his successor. De Blasio’s own announcement of his record $98.6 billion spending plan for fiscal year 2022 crowed that “almost $6 billion in direct local aid will be used now through...
