    Eastern Shores flotilla is ridiculous

    Jenny Staletovich’s Aug. 24 article, Floating homes may be answer to rising seas, seems to be nothing more than a biased piece for the developers. Most troubling is that the article says there is no opposition to this concept.

    FIU expansion good for community

    I’m writing in support of Florida International University’s expansion to the land next to its Modesto A. Maidique Campus. I serve on the FIU School of Accounting’s Advisory Board and Board of Trustees’ Athletic Committee. And as a member of FIU’s President’s Council, I’ve been honored to act as an FIU ambassador to the community.

  • Crammed in the air

    There have been several stories recently about arguments on airplanes because of passengers reclining their seats. I may be next. The way most airlines — hello, American! — configure their seats makes it virtually impossible to hold a book or laptop. And try getting out of your seat to go to the restroom!

  • Don’t blame cops

    The Miami Herald’s Opinion pages hit a an all-time low with the Aug. 23 Other Views feature, Stopped by Cops. It only stoked the fire and insulted the police.

  • Broken system

    As a first-generation immigrant, I am glad the White House is going to take executive action on immigration reform. Though I was lucky to become a U.S. citizen through legal channels, I support a comprehensive overhaul of our broken system. Providing undocumented immigrants a legal path to citizenship is crucial. Being criminalized and forced to live in the shadows is no way for hardworking immigrants to live.

  • Land of laws

    I agree with Sabriya B. Ishoof that the death of Michael Brown is disturbing, as is the death of every young person regardless at whose hand. (Injustice rules, Readers’ Forum, Aug. 26).

  • Cop cameras needed

    Re the Aug. 22 article Mayor Gimenez wants cameras on all police: I’m a criminal-defense lawyer and former prosecutor. I defend cops when they’re accused of a crime. I’ve handled thousands of cases, but only a small fraction had video. With the videos, the truth always seems to come out. Without video, it’s your word against that of the police, and guess who wins that argument?

  • Nan Rich slighted

    Only the cynical can exult in the short shrift Democrat Nan Rich got from most of the media, enabling her chameleon-like competitor to crush her in her party’s primary. It was a disgrace shown this accomplished woman who never once has let her party down.
