SUNY Buffalo, Binghamton, Stony Brook and Albany spent a total of $12.5 million on travel since January 2011, much of it for the schools’ sports teams.
“Bottom line: The SUNY system desperately needs to be reformed. This is our tax money being wasted and we are in an extreme recession/depression. Someone, please, make some big cuts somewhere.”
— John Davis
“I have a kid at UB and I appreciate that the school is trying to become a part of Division I sports. We enjoy going up there to watch UB football, especially since the kid is part of the marching band. SUNY is a bargain and its programs are on par with any other state school system. Young son No. 2 will start Purchase in the fall, another bargain. I fully support SUNY sports and Division I play.”
— George Thompson
President Obama’s new immigration policy is welcome help for undocumented youth, we wrote in an editorial Sunday. At least one reader seconded our preference for comprehensive overhaul of the immigration system.
“Simplify the immigration process. Allow the path to citizenship to be more affordable and less bureaucratic. … Encourage the millions upon who are working off the books that they no longer have to hide in the shadows. The path to citizenship is the key to reform. It worked for my Irish and German grandparents.”
— Jeffrey Meyer
“When did illegal stop meaning illegal?”
— Denis Ian
