Letters: Justice must be done for all associated with the Kermit Gosnell abortion horror

Posted: January 26, 2011

THIS ISN'T my usual rant (pulling the race card), but the atrocity of what Dr. Gosnell allegedly did over the years to all these women, mostly poor and black, is all too real.

As someone who worked in various hospitals around the city since the '80s, I can attest to what is the proper training and cleanliness of any surgical suite on the planet.

But here, the rules were botched, ignored and disrespected. Gosnell's clinic sounds like something out of a bad horror movie. My heart goes out to all the desperate women who trusted this so-called physician.

I agree with the judge and the grand jury that no one go unscathed. No bail and no playing around. The word "murder" is totally appropriate! I would like to see them all get just what they deserve in this case.

No way, no how

I will not support any candidate for public office who has participated in the Deferred Retirement Option Plan.

In fact, my opponent for city commissioner, the siren of shameful shenanigans, Marge Tartaglione, was the among the first to exploit DROP. Having been a pension-raiding pioneer, she is worthy of at least as much attention as those on City Council hoping to do the same.

Kudos to Andy

I'd just like to say congratulations to Eagles head coach Andy Reid and his assistants for the job they did this season.

To all the Reid detractors, especially among the press, how would you like to have Rich Kotite back?

A painful text

Jenice Armstrong, you hit the nail on the head in your column.

Driving while texting on your cell phone is a no-no. Just last week, I fell victim to this nasty habit, rear-ending a car in front of me. I learned my lesson the hard way!
