Letter: Dumbing down of America


I am with recent letter-writers, 100 percent. I am disgusted with the changes here. I am a native New Yorker and grew up on Long Island, moving here due to a military move back when there was beauty and grace to be found. Now, everything is about the “ching-a-ching.” Lots of people moving here from California and overseas investors making it big. And little thought invested into culture and education. It is just sad, period.

My earliest years were in NYC and us kids didn’t have much but felt we had everything. Now all I see is the dumbing down of America in general. I saw my first opera when I was 7 and fell in love with dinosaurs when I was 5, thanks to the American Museum of Natural History. I will stop here.
