Let’s repeal outdated, useless Law of Gravity

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionThere is something that Get’s repeal outdated, useless Law of Gravity v. Cuomo and the state Legislature can do right now that not only will save money, but might save countless lives and relieve undue suffering. That action is to simply repeal the Law of Gravity. That law has been around since the 1600’s, and its biggest proponent was Sir Isaac Newton. However, this is the 21st century, and that law is now sadly outdated and has outlived its usefulness.The benefits to all New Yorkers are endless — senior citizens would no longer have to worry about slipping and falling, either inside their home or traveling to/from their home. We could eliminate costly school bus programs because kids would only need to get a running start. An added benefit would be the extra exercise that the kids would receive. And it just might help to wean them off of their cell phones. (One can only hope.)Unfortunately, falls from locations such as ski areas, mountains and tall skyscrapers would be unaffected due to the federal version of the law that has built-in mandates that can’t be changed. However, there are so many good things that would occur if only this law was repealed. Now is the time to act. I urge everyone to contact their local legislators to make this a reality.Ken TrumanAlbanyMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFeds: Albany man sentenced for role in romance scamEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?last_img
