Dear Editor:

McVeigh (Factologist Sean McVeigh) crushed it today: who knew about pumpernickel, Walmart bananas and the fact that Froot Loops is spelled “froot” not fruit was an absolute eye opener for me! Otters fact fur wasn’t bad either! He’s carrying your paper!

(Regarding High Tide item about New Park pizza) Nope. New Park Pizza, which serves a very fine slice, is not in Broad Channel. ‘New Park,' as it is locally known, is and has been for 65 years in Howard Beach, at the corner of Cross Bay Blvd. and 157th Ave. On Cross Bay, yes. In Broad Channel, no.

In my mind it singled out that, yes, Covid has almost been vanquished—and, also, yes, we are living in a

 Dear Editor:

While stuck at home during the pandemic, I developed a bad habit. I watch the ABC evening local and national news.

Dear Editor:
