What A Jerk!

What A Jerk!

I would like to start off by saying that I was completely disgusted by the ignorant comments of Bob Nesoff in the October 13th edition.

Firstly, Mr Nesoff, I am apalled that you would even suggest blowing up a community after the tragic events of September 11th. For that comment you are nothing but a heartless fool. Broad Channel residents along with the rest of the world have lost friends and family members to that disaster. Let me ask you, while you were driving around aimlessly, did you happen to stop
by the Broad Channel field, or any location in Broad Channel or Rockaway to donate money to the victims of the WTC? For your information the residents of Broad Channel (the ones that you thought should be blown up) held a charity softball game and donated all of the proceeds to the victims. What have you done besides criticize hard working people and communities that you haven't so much as visited in 50 years?
Secondly the fact that you can imply that Broad Channel hasn't changed in 50 years is completely absurd. A lot of new residents have moved in, and along with the young Broad Channel residents have bought alot of the old bungalows
and empty lots and turned them into beautiful waterfront properties. I guess you missed the gorgeous home that was built a couple of years ago by the Howard’s, to name one. I guess that you also missed our new football field and basketball and tennis courts. Or were those things all here in 1948?

It's a shame that your old home and school are gone now, but as you can see, a lot has changed in 50 years and there are a lot more to changes to come. You said that you don't know if you could ever go back.....well that's good, because with your attitude, your not wanted here anyway.
