Letters to the Editor
A telling tumble I do not think it appropriate to question mayoral candidate Lynne M. Abraham's health because of her age. However, her recent collapse at a televised debate appropriately raised a question about her judgment. In other words, what could she have been thinking if, in fact, as reported, she had not eaten all day? I ask the question as a longtime admirer. But with her judgment at issue, that bears directly on her qualifications to govern Philadelphia.
DESPITE the number of exemplary schools in this city, far too many Philadelphia youth are still attending low-achieving schools. For that reason I am a proud board member of Sky Community Partners.
