Feb. 25 Letters to the Editor

In the 1960s, my Dad used to say that the Internal Combustion Engine was one of the greatest things to ever happen to humankind. Although this view which columnist Scotty Anderson also recently espoused (Daily News, Feb. 21) may have made sense then, science now tells us that this profligate burning of fossil fuels is taking us towards a climate that will soon be unlivable for all.

Santa is Buying Himself A Ford Bronco For Arctic Fun

Who knew Santa is a Ford Bronco fan? As it turns out, Ford had some super-secret pictures of Santa visiting them in Dearborn, Michigan, back in November 1968. The purpose of his visit? He wanted to check out the new, first-generation Bronco. It seems that Santa likes to have some arctic off-road fun once he is done delivering gifts for the holidays. The legendary SUV was his go-to for that fun back then. Now that the 4×4 nameplate has returned, Santa has paid another visit to Ford.
