[colored_box color=”blue”]How come nobody was up in arms about the [Real Housewives of NJ] or Mob Wives? Both depict Italian American Princesses in less than a flattering light. I am a Jewish woman who was raised as a “princess” and I find these characters no less offensive than the others.

[colored_box color=”grey”]Dear Editor:

You can learn a lot about our past by reading “Defeat, Retreat, Spies and Surprise: George Washington On L.I.” (Rear View by Spencer Rumsey, July 2013). Who knew LI residents played such a role in the founding of our nation? The article is worthy of any high school or college history class covering the War for Independence from England.
