Angered by presidential alerts

To the Editor:

I would like to express my anger regarding this presidential alert. Not that I am opposed to being made aware of a national emergency, but the fact that we cannot opt out, I feel is a violation of my right to choose. The other issue is I did not get just one alert, but four. I am a patient in Bayonne hospital, and I got alerts at 2:18, 2:28, 2:35 and 2:39 p.m. That did not make me very happy to say the least. Something needs to be done about this.
