Letter: Preaching To The Choir

Your “Patience Is A Virtue” editorial was a good one: a good “lesson," plus good advice. Unfortunately, it was probably “preaching to the choir”, because those of us patient, considerate reader-drivers will just continue practicing our responsible, careful driving habits; while the  impatient, reckless fools like the one you describe—who arrogantly think that THEIR time is more important than anyone else’s safety—are likely to continue their public-menace  bad  driving  habits.  

If only horn-honkers  like that  Mercedes owner were the worst ones on the road. It’s more the speeders, swervers, texters, and drunkards who cause the most damage and death. I only wish that each and every one of them would hit a vehicle-damaging, disabling, incapacitating pothole before they cause an accident that will kill or maim some innocent person, whether a pedestrian, passenger, or “pilot” of a patiently-driven car.

Thanks in large part to a substantial increase in sponsor support – and Mother Nature’s cooperation – the 2014 Plainview-Old Bethpage Craft and Gift Fair was a rousing success.

A caravan of vendors filled the parking lot of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Library starting at 7 a.m. By the time fairgoers crossed the blue and green balloon arch at 10 a.m. to receive their free T-shirt and bags stuffed with sponsor goodies, there were 108 booths ready to welcome them on the sunny day.

A special series of medical lectures will be held throughout the country in October. The Plainview Hospital is one of the stops on the tour.

On Sunday, Oct. 19 from 7-9 p.m., a free lecture will be presented by Franz Gringinger, MD, Austria and A.W. Arends, MD, Germany. These specialists are members of the Medical Scientific Group (MWF), a part of the Bruno Groening Circle of Friends.

Dr. Gringinger earned his degree at the University of Vienna in 1987 and from the beginning of his medical career, was interested in alternative methods.
