The Military and the Catholic Church Share a Moment in Time

(0) Comments | Posted May 15, 2013 | 10:47 PM

Is it just me or do the revelations that the military's sexual predatory behavior is even more egregious than it seemed a few weeks ago (and even then it was egregious) make one think we have witnessed this movie before? It is a musty reel, with sloppy sound, and hazy...

A Sandy Marathon

(2) Comments | Posted November 2, 2012 | 1:21 PM

Do we really need a runner's marathon when people in Staten Island are still trapped in their homes, unable to cook or wash themselves, or even find a gas station to fill up their car so they can get the hell out of the Dante-like-Inferno in which they presently find...

A Fly On The Wall In The Doctor's Office

(3) Comments | Posted October 3, 2008 | 7:23 PM

Two days ago I am sitting in my doctor's office waiting room. I take my place, survey my surroundings, and do what most of us do when we sit down in a doctor's waiting room. I create my own version of the Seinfeld routine. You know. I wonder what she...

It's Time For A Red And Blue Annulment

(4) Comments | Posted September 16, 2008 | 1:40 PM

As a self confessed progressive and blue state snob (or vice versa) as I watched the republican convention I thought to myself "Who are these people?" No, that's not what I thought -- what I thought was, "where do they find these people?" And, "how do they fit so many...
