In light of “Jay-O” Schneiderman’s announcement that he might take his show on the road, with dreams of venues farther than the county [“Jay Schneiderman’s Lyrics Featured in Ballad Performed on ‘The Bachelorette,’” 27east.com, October 26], I offer a song to speed him on his merry musical way. With the sincerest of apologies to the great lyricist Gus Kahn, join me in a sing-along to “It Had To Be You”:
Too good to be true!
Too good to be true!!
Schneiderman sounds … like he finally found
Something he could do.
A cliché or two, “The Bachlorette” skew,
Add a wedding or two
Some drumming by hand, a geriatric garage band:
And, it’s adieu!
Some others will run,
Oh, won’t that be fun!
Could be a toss, but “proba-ly” a better boss
That’s certainly true.
For nobody else leaves such a bill,
Back-room nods and taxes that kill.
It’s long overdue
Go back into the blue
Too good to be true!
(No encores, please!)

I have to admit I was flattered that Ken Dorph, the Mideast expert, responded to my Letter to the Editor [“Build Bridges,” Letters, November 30]. He literally spent three paragraphs qualifying that he is an expert, despite the fact that...
There comes a time within some lives, When sparrows fall and voices fail, And all that is, or ever was, Holds not one single claim to what will be. For twenty-six, and those who cherished them, that day has come....
Today’s headlines covering the anti-Israel, pro-Hamas demonstrations across the country in cities and on many a campus are eerily reminiscent of my youth in the late 1960s. Anti-Vietnam sentiment divided us who were being conscripted to prosecute a war we...
It’s exciting to hear that the first of 12 wind turbines has been installed to provide clean energy for eastern Long Island. The turbines will catch the steady breezes 35 miles out, invisible from the beach. While good news, South...
