  • Comment on Digital Frontier by Frank Haggerty December 12, 2017
    I entirely agree with your comments about "promoting a little bit of plain, old-fashioned literacy and culture instead of another visit to the Short Attention Span Theater" and screen addiction. So much that passes under the rubric of "social media" and "technology" is in fact little more than social and cultural manipulation. T […]

    You're really stretching to find a negative here. The demand for technology help is huge and continues to grow. Project CodeSpring introduced a lot of kids to coding and several of them are well on their way to great careers based on some of the things they learned from Pam.

I have no problem with how p […]
  • Comment on After Indian Point: What’s Causing Local Thyroid Cancer Rates to Soar? by Donald Kleszy December 10, 2017
    The "new study" that you cite in your article is from a notorious anti-nuclear pseudo-scientist, and the article that you've subsequently published does a disservice to the intelligence of your readers and the reputation of The Highlands Current.

  • Comment on After Indian Point: What’s Causing Local Thyroid Cancer Rates to Soar? by Kathleen Kourie December 9, 2017
    The doctor has been watching large nodules in my daughter’s thyroid for years. We live within 8 miles of Indian Point.

Hers was OK but others were not so lucky.
