Saw you in a local pizza place today and would have made this suggestion had you not been in the middle of your lunch...

"The East End" is, perhaps, my favorite of all News 12 features. However, being an average Syosset working man and one of Long Island's deprived and forgotten Summer- Homeless, many of the activities and events you showcase are just way out of my reach. Without a place to stay on the East End - and without decent railroad service past Huntington - getting out there to enjoy the many highlights of Greenport, Montauk, etc. can be quite difficult.

However, one East End activity that any Long Islander can enjoy inexpensively and with minimal hassle is a bicycle ride from Greenport to Sag Harbor. This ride, which comprises a dedicated bike lane along most of Rt. 114 as well as two cool little ferry rides, fits perfectly into a Sunday afternoon, travel and all.

I think, given the current state of our economy and its likely effect on the East End’s summer season, Long Islanders would appreciate a segment on this awesome bike route that takes in Greenport, Shelter Island, North Haven, and Sag Harbor. You might also want to include the section of the route that continues into the Hamptons.

I can provide more information if you are interested. My e-mail address is [email protected]

Thank you.

Just remember - A high consumption of omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in most types of vegetable oil INCLUDING SUNFLOWER OIL, may increase the likelihood that postmenopausal women will develop breast cancer. A similar effect was observed on prostate cancer.

Living on Long Island already comes with associated toxic risks. There is certainly no need to exacerbate the problem by making unhealthy food choices.

Skip the potato chips. They aren't worth the risk.
