Noise Level, "A Witch Hunt"
August 20th, 2007

The Times praised Mayor Bloomberg of his attempt to reduce noise level in the city but warned that an enforcement staff of about 50, or about 10 per borough might not enough. The city may eventually need to consider building a staff more equal to the size of the mission, the paper said.

Meanwhile, Mona Eltahawy wrote in The Daily News that the firing of Debbie Almontaser as principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy was a witch hunt.

Critics had targeted Almontaser for months, ” she said. ” You can be sure that if it hadn’t been the T-shirts – which had nothing to do with Almontaser or her school – it would have been something else.
