The Sand Plan

With the Fire Island to Montauk Point, or FIMP, project of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to be restarted in 2023, and it being what Kevin McAllister, president of the organization Defend H20, describes as now largely a “sand plan” — to dump sand along the 83 miles of the Suffolk County oceanfront — it would be instructive to consider the situation in another region. I began writing about the Army Corps’s FIMP plan when I started as a reporter in Suffolk County in 1962. Then, what was a new scheme also involved sand dumping. But a key feature ... by Karl Grossman

Circus Act

It was immensely refreshing to find two readers taking Carlos Sandoval to task for his recent opinion piece [“The Ballot And The Boogeyman,” Vistas, Opinion, November 11]. His reasoning and verbal gymnastics in support of critical race theory and the 1619 Project borders on contortionism. I was personally disgusted after reading the piece but did not want to waste another effort in response, only to be rejected because of lack of column space, advertising space limitations and the discretionary sensibilities of the editor. As Ed Surgan of Westhampton [“A Trojan Horse,” Letters, November 25], one of the two commenting readers, ... by Staff Writer

They Should Know

Reader Ed Surgan and others have used these pages to rail against critical race theory, which they mistakenly imply is being taught in our schools. According to Wikipedia, CRT is an academic movement that suggests that racial outcomes are the result of subtle social and institutional dynamics, rather than explicit and intentional prejudices of individuals. In other words, decisions that might seem to have nothing to do with race often negatively affect racial minorities. For example, petrochemical plants are located near minority communities, whose residents then suffer from higher than normal cancer rates. Major highways are built through minority neighborhoods, ... by Staff Writer

Narcissistic Wokeness

Michael Daly is again sputtering, with his particular take on the “workforce and affordable housing crisis” [“Courage Is Needed,” Letters, October 28]. Whether speaking as preacher, real estate agent or flack, his pronouncements are rampant with undocumented “studies” and empty-charged buzzwords. Take his comments on behalf of “community,” for instance — a buzzword that allows him to step out of his “community,” nestled next to a nature preserve in Sag Harbor, to plunk himself down in Tuckahoe; while “crisis” conflated from “need” is a messianic marketing concept. He bemoans the loss of “our heritage businesses.” Surely during his long and ... by Staff Writer
