The abduction and loss of life of two Americans near our border ought to have resulted in a swift and important response by our inconsequential president (“Killing field of the cartels,” March 9).
But we should face actuality. This spineless one who was principally elected to guard his nation’s residents refuses to react to the homicide of 1000’s of Americans dying from Chinese and Mexican fentanyl. Do we count on him to care about simply two extra?
It’s time for Congress to intervene and inform Mexico that the phobia should cease now.

My first introduction to apocalyptic predictions occurred in highschool, once I discovered concerning the Thomas Robert Malthus concept that meals output couldn’t preserve tempo with inhabitants progress (“Unsettled Science,” Editorial, March 6).
Next in my schooling got here Rachel Carson, who wrote concerning the risks of utilizing pesticides in her 1962 guide “Silent Spring.” While she makes some vital factors, it’s now 61 years later, and pesticides haven’t destroyed the earth.
The Nineteen Eighties introduced hysteria over acid rain, which many feared was destroying freshwater lakes and the atmosphere. Today we’re coping with fears over world warming.
As The Post editorial factors out, regardless of all of the fear-mongering and dire projections, the impact of worldwide warming on the atmosphere has been minimal, and not one of the dire predictions made by celebrities and political activists have come to move.
Just like all of the previous projections of mass annihilation, this one will quickly be forgotten. But not earlier than it has carried out a lot harm to our financial well-being and burdened many with pointless concern and anxiousness.

The undertaking to modernize Belmont Park has repeatedly been mischaracterized and unfairly criticized within the pages of The Post (“Burning Public Cash on NY’s Tracks,” Editorial, Feb. 27).
These assaults couldn’t be farther from the reality — they usually low cost the unbelievable alternative the game offers for individuals like me throughout the state.
I’m a single mother who has labored in horse racing for 4 a long time. Thanks to the well-paying jobs supported by this sport, I used to be in a position to elevate my son, put him by way of faculty and graduate college and fulfill my dream of homeownership.
Modernizing Belmont Park would safeguard and strengthen horse racing in New York for generations to come back, guaranteeing there are extra well-paying jobs for New Yorkers like me. It’s downright offensive that The Post would assault a sport like this and low cost jobs that assist households throughout the state.
I do know I communicate for myself and the 1000’s of New Yorkers who depend on horse racing for his or her livelihood — from blacksmiths to train riders to grooms to union carpenters, electricians, and extra — once I urge our leaders in Albany to assist the Belmont modernization undertaking.

The imply mob that destroyed the Fish Village restaurant whereas hiding their faces with hoodies and masks have to be arrested and despatched to jail, even when they’re teenagers (“Qns. trash mob,” March 8).
Our weak, soft-on-crime metropolis and state officers should change the legal guidelines round age, in order that these punks be taught a lesson.
Who goes to place hard-earned cash into opening a small enterprise in New York if our lawmakers themselves are blind to lawlessness?
