After reading your editorial ["No way to run a hospital," Nov. 24] about the removal of Nassau University Medical Center chief Arthur Gianelli, I was livid.

After long witnessing Nassau politics and its ingrained patronage, I've concluded that some things will never change, regardless of which party is in power. In this case, I find it reprehensible that despite his reported outstanding performance, Gianelli was lost to a system that feeds itself at the expense of good governance.
