Speakout: Oct. 6, 2012


NYTimes online featured an article by David W. Chen covering a pictorial project depicting locations of Chinese Americans being attacked, slaughtered and otherwise facing ethnic cleansing, in America. It’s not just Native Americans and African Americans. I am so ashamed of the white primitives in our history.


I love Facebook, like millions of people do, but why does this generation take so many pictures of themselves day after day and post them for the world to see? Do they really think that highly of themselves?


Eight retired women had lunch at The Happy Pike today. Imagine our surprise that a young man seeing that we were celebrating several August birthdays paid for our lunch. Yes, there are people who actually enjoy doing good things for others. Thank you so much. You made our day.


Please, people, stand back when doors open to allow people to exit elevator. Don’t charge on as soon as doors open. Those who arrived last, do not cut in front of line of those already waiting. Wait for next elevator. No cell phones on elevator. Hold doors.


Why can’t people who are walking or running in a road do so on the sidewalk next to it? Lately it’s like an epidemic of recklessness and stupidity that drivers will be held responsible for, even if it’s not their fault the person wasn’t on the sidewalk.


Suggestion to local thrift stores. Price all your items at $1 so there is no second guessing when we get to the counter. You can also have fill-a-bag sales. You would move more items. Everything is free to you, so any profit is a profit.


I don’t understand why the one-way streets in Plattsburgh can’t be changed to two-way streets. Most of them are two lanes going in the same direction. It’s just a pain in the neck.
