Haha, score one for the cabbie! These entitled, spoiled brats are ruining Montauk!

I totally understand being short on cash and not realizing that it will cost that much, but at leastRead More be a decent human and try to offer some way to resolve the issue aside from walking away. Kudos to the cabbie! The guy very easily could have provided him with his contact info or tried to contact the taxi company with credit card info...anything is better than walking away. He got what he deserved.

Cancer will never be cured...ever.

My sister lived 4 glorious years on a new treatment for pancreatic cancer, which was unheard of 7Read More years ago. I would of given my left arm and more if those years were extended for even 4 months longer. ANY new treatment is fantastic news for those suffering with this horrible sickness. Sorry to disagree TJ, but I have faith that cancer will be cured one day. Without faith and hope, there is no life.

What about all the mistakes made by the FDA where a drug is approved then abruptly taken off theRead More market after it has killed 100's of people. What about all the BILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS that are given to the BIG PHARMA COMPANIES and we the Taxpayers get nothing in return. Unless you call our having to pay inflated prices for a drug that our tax dollars already payed for. SUCH A DEAL. NOT !!! I also agree that there will NEVER BE A CURE FOR CANCER as there is too much money to be made by Insurance Companies, Big Pharma Companies and the HealthCare Industry from sick people.

This article makes ZERO sense as written. How do you collapse while you're swimming? Maidstone parkRead More is ACROSS the inlet from Sammies Beach, they can't have pulled him from the water from across the channel. Please publish an accurate account

I think the men who witnessed were on the Maidstone side and Weber was on the Sammy's beach side, IRead More heard and saw all the police and marine cars and trucks lasts night. Not sure if he was swimming or not but it is possible that he experienced some kind of health related event that would cause him to collapse on the shoreline. I do agree with you though, that manner of which this article is written is well confusing. Very sad. RIP

Do you know why those cars were built with non-union labor in Tennessee? Because these company'sRead More when they choose to build a factory they build them in the most economically depressed parts of the country which most of the time is the south part of the country. A part where Unionism never was popular. As for Ford building cars in Mexico, not true there are parts of the cars that are built in Mexico then the parts are shipped back to the US line and and assembled here. You can thank the NAFTA agreement for that. As for your comment about excessive costs in taxes and salaries compared to NC and that most working people lead a decent life. I agree with some of that but I do not blame working Union men & women for the difference in cost. I blame the politicians in this land we live in the NE. Your tax cost is what is making you miserable to survive here. I am one of them. If our tax costs ( school,property,sales,etc.) were as low as NC I do not think you and I would be having this conversation.At one time here where we live they were that low. NC like NY will eventually evolve into the same beast as more and more people arrive to their geography. This is what happens when the destination cannot handle the influx and had to hire more people and with people come politicians. Politicians now look at that neighborhood as a great place to get votes from and that starts the ball rolling.As for Excessive Compensation?? What is considered excessive to man like you? Someone who gets overtime when he has worked 12 straight hours when most people work 8? It sounds like I am splitting hairs but you work 4 more hours per day then most people during one week that's an extra 20 hours per week. I am sure you would want to be compensated also and you would ask for it. And your not even in a Union. ( not sure) 98% of the LIRR workers felt they were entitled to disability pensions?? I did not hear that stated?If it was coming from a disgruntled citizen or some Union hater not sure? I can say this, it's very easy for anyone to look down on the workers of the LIRR because they may make you late for your way of life when they are active in the collective bargaining process, it is not done intentionally. They are fighting for their way of life, their Livelihood. Just like you would if you heard that your company is looking to fire half the office. They have families,car payments,mortgages,school taxes just like all of us. I am a 3rd generation Union Man. And even before I became vested in the politics of Unionism, my Grandfather told me that you never look down on a working man who gets up everyday to earn a living. My father then told me that people need to walk a mile in a man's shoes before you can judge him. Something I feel has been 2 of the most truthful statements I have ever learned in my life. You can be mad that you might not be as compensated as well at your job as they are iin the LIRR, but then again that should give everyone a little blip of hope that these things are able to exist when people come together for the good of the worker. I enjoyed our banter. Thank you. All the best.
Robert Demarco July 22, 2014 at 11:58 am
Tom, you are an articulate spokesman for your cause, and I, too have enjoyed our little debate. IRead More just want to address one comment: I do not look down on the woprkingman. In fact, I do tax returns for many of these folks and a much reduced rate than they would pay elsewhere. It is a sideline for me, and I would not be comfortable ripping people off. I do find, however, an incredible sense of entitlement among the public employees. I would bet that most of these people never worked in the private sector, so they do not understand that their good fortune is due as much to politics as it is hard work. It is a shame that people of lesser means have to pay grossly inflated taxes so that these workers can have their high salaries and benefits.
Robert Demarco July 22, 2014 at 03:23 pm
People need to realize that the Patch is a forum where ideas can be exchanged. Opinions can beRead More disagreed with but respected. That is what America is all about.
