It’s too bad that “One Angry Jon L. Vetrone” had to try casting a cloud over Sunday’s dedication of the 1907 Old Courthouse in Glen Cove as the “Marguerite and Joseph Suozzi Building.” The letter writer took half a page (Record Pilot, July 30-August 5) to 1. purposely bad-mouth and disrespect the entire Suozzi family; 2. actually besmirch the good name of his own father, the late Joseph L. Vetrone, who served as the city’s judge for 30 years; and 3. arbitrarily drag in the good name of present judge Richard McCord because he supposedly was the protege of Judge Vetrone. He did nothing to venerate his dad, already a beloved icon of the community.
What a colossal blunder, Angry Jon, to disrupt, disturb and disregard an entire heritage of a proud city. Sour grapes in The Orchard? Very poor form indeed.
