In the Aug. 19 issue of The New Times, the Sanity Fair column titled “Mountain Appeal” by former liberal activist and current partisan democratic supporter, Ed Griffin-Nolan, finds him predictably supporting “Obamacare” by simply focusing on irrelevancies such as “death panels,” and a couple of prominent republican names in order to weave a preposterous phantasm involving the Adirondacks, in place of non-existent positive facts that might support Obamacare.
As far as Bush war crimes, Obama and his administration are making themselves culpable by continuing to cover up Bush atrocities. Where are the war crimes’ investigations? How many times is the Obama administration going to make excuses for not releasing court ordered documents? Worse yet, when they are finally released they are redacted beyond recognition.
As a gay man, I am rarely asked my opinion on gay marriage. Most individuals automatically believe I support the enterprise. They are mistaken.
The lengthy story of how the Syracuse New Times was founded, as told through the eyes of founder Ken Simon, was an extraordinary segment of historic journalism.
The Syracuse New Times issue, July 29th to 05 August '09, with the story of the paper's growth and financial struggles should be read, and reread by all the loyal readers of the Syracuse New Times. It was only after reading the impressive story of founder Ken Simon and his determination, have I come to really appreciate and understand what the Syracuse New Times is all about.

The actions of the New York Assembly passing same-sex marriage legislation and making sodomy legal, is another step in the continuing degradation of American culture, and in my view, a crime against the children of the next generation. It will accelerate the breakdown of the American family just as the liberalization of divorce did in the 1970s. Our children deserve to be raised in a loving home with both a mother and a father. Any public policy that lowers that standard represents, in my opinion, state-sponsored child abuse.
Marriage is, and always will be, the union of one man and one woman. Perhaps our state legislators should take a lesson from the Missouri State Senate Chamber which has carved in its ceiling “Nothing is politically right that is morally wrong.”
We are calling on New Yorkers to phone and write to their representatives in the state senate to demand that marriage not be redefined for all New Yorkers just to satisfy homosexual activists. The rights of our children to grow up in a decent and moral environment must not be sacrificed on the altar of gay rights.

Civil marriage for same-sex couples as well as opposite-sex couples is fair and just. This is the marriage license the couple buys at the town or city hall; it is a license issued and recognized by the state. It reflects no religious bias.
Letter written to our publisher
Mr. Zimmer - I was given your name by way of Scott Severance Real Estate. I'm working on my dissertation that deals with the 1939/40 New York World's Fair and am trying to find the records of the Barlow Advertising Agency.
I would like to welcome Central New York Home and Garden magazine to the fine family of publications of which I have the privilege of being the owner and publisher. My flagship publication, the Syracuse New Times, is the most popular newspaper in upstate New York. The New Times is now celebrating its 40th anniversary with 25 of those years under my direction.
I am a regular reader of the Syracuse New Times and enjoy the insightful, sometimes witty and always local talk of your weekly paper. However, the article written by Bill DeLapp for the March 11 issue, part of the “Remember WHEN?” story on WTVH-Channel 5, made me take pause and question the professionalism of both Mr. DeLapp, as well as any editor that read the article prior to publication.
