Watching the New York political leadership respond to the attack by radical Islam, one would never realize that they have blocked efforts to stop at our borders those who would battle us ("Police: Truck attack suspect 'did this in the name of ISIS'," Nov. 1). When they tell us to be calm and go about our business, they seem to mean for us to ignore this killing field and don't look too hard into what helped this enemy to attack us in our own country. They mean to go about their business of politically correct attitudes and ignore the carnage on the bike path. Eight deaths seem to be acceptable numbers to them. They will not do anything different.
