Perhaps Newsday should look at the underlying reasons for Losquadro's comments, rather than lambasting him for his choice of language. If anyone deserves criticism for his choice in words, it's Levy. Remarks can't be "neanderthal," but people can, and I think a reasonable person would interpret Levy's comment as a personal attack on Losquadro. Levy should apologize.
The real issue here is whether the county spreads affordable housing across multiple locations, or plops it all down in one place. Yes, we need to keep an open mind, but keeping an open mind doesn't necessarily require reserving judgment until proposals are in, if the overall plan utilizes a potentially flawed approach.
Personally, I applaud Losquadro for raising the level of discussion around this issue, and for looking out for his constituents by insisting on responsible planning. Perhaps he used some strong language, but his use of that language does not merit a personal attack by Levy.

Perhaps Newsday should also ditch the reverse-IP geolocation, so that a traveling Long Islander won't appear to be a resident of Las Vegas.
Just wanna head off the inevitable "why does someone from Nevada care about county politics on LI?" questions...

I think we do not need to create affordable housing. The housing bubble burst and I believe the homes will come down in the near future and builder will start building smaller homes, as there is not as much spendable income floating around with the cost of gas and oil and goods, etc. Let things work themselves out without interference by our elected officials.
Making things available to folks who can ill afford to maintain them will create a slum just like Losquadro said.

Who would know more about slum creation than the Losquadro family. Ed ( puffer pigeon ) Romaine has a history of ignoring the zoning rules in Brookhaven as well. Wait and see. If anyone of these elected persons is conservative they would agree with the blogger from Bayport and LET THE MARKET DETERMINE MIDDLE INCOME HOUSING. Steve Levy you are not a fiscal conservative, you are slip sliding into political demigogery. Ehe voters in Brookhaven have short memories.
