[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E488] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN RECOGNITION OF THE 60TH BIRTHDAY OF NEAL TRAVIS ______ HON. GARY L. ACKERMAN of new york in the house of representatives Tuesday, April 4, 2000 Mr. ACKERMAN. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to pay tribute to Neal Travis, one of New York's most celebrated newspaper columnists and writers, on the occasion of his 60th birthday. Neal Travis' insightful analysis of the New York scene has educated and entertained those in the big apple for many, many years. His column in the New York Post, Neal Travis' New York, has covered all aspects of life and has attracted the attention of all segments of our society. His blend if wit, sarcasm, compassion and searing observations have inspired, motivated and always informed New Yorkers. Born in New Zealand, Neal Travis emigrated to the United States in 1964 where he served as a foreign correspondent for Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation. He then rose quickly up the ladder and secured his own column in the New York Post. Some 15 years after its inception, Neal Travis' New York is more popular than ever. Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues in the House of Representatives to join me today in sending our warmest congratulations to Neal Travis on his 60th birthday. Life in New York will always be more significant and exciting because of his presence and his gift with the written word. ____________________
