Today’s Opinion section offered various viewpoints about the Tappan Zee Bridge. U.S. Rep. Nan Hayworth, R-Mt. Kisco, offers her support for replacing the bridge, calling the replacement project crucial to the economy. Others focus on what to do with the old span, how the local communities are being treated in the process (hint: the word “bullied” is used frequently), and whether we need a new bridge at all.
In other opinionating, the Editorial Board examines the flip by Susan G. Komen for the Cure, in rescinding its defunding of breast-health grants from Planned Parenthood, the lessons to be learned, and the impact on women’s health.
