Maliki out-Abadi in; Gregory out-Todd in; Sterling out-Ballmer in. In a week of strife, Shrum and Frum debate two other enduring clashes: was Hillary's comment on Obama's "not doing stupid 'stuff'" nasty or innocent (she thinks the latter); how should cops patrol communities after Brown/Garner?
It was one of those 3 a.m. ideas that I had to act on. And that was to go paleo... for a week. Could I handle this almost-absurd change in my diet?
Whether you're looking for a local grocer or an elegant dinner, there's something for everyone in this community.
This idea that cops get to say when and where constitutional rights apply is so very, deeply misguided that I am shocked anyone could type it out without coming to their senses mid-sentence.
I actually like the "broken window" theory, which is one reason I am marching on August 23, I just think the theory is being seriously misapplied. It is long past time to fix the real broken windows in our society that have victimized many but especially African American men.
In light of Missouri, do the critics still think NY Mayor Bill de Blasio is weak and that he caved in to Sharpton? Or perhaps, did de Blasio's actions avert violence?
This chair had a gimp wheel. And one of the rear railings sported a small knotty oak protuberance. That protuberance was small at 7:30 in the morning. But by three o'clock it felt like Excalibur was impaled in my kidney.
They're making the best of things. Violeta has learned to go to mass by herself. Immaculate Conception is only five blocks away, but for Vincent it might as well be a million miles.
Bullying and taunting follow people through their entire lives, and it's not just a problem for our children. Just ask the drag queen who was brought to tears onstage during a late-night cabaret show in New York when discussing recent anonymous attacks against her on Secret. Who benefits from that?
Ferguson represents another step in the escalating failure of the "broken windows" view of crime that has gained ascendancy during the past generation.
To try and reach back there, I'm going straight to the source. Not to new books like Joseph Tirella's Tomorrow-Land, but to a dust-blanketed old one. It's one that's been wedged in the back of my shelf since the summer of 1964: The Official Guide to the New York World's Fair.
The 4th Annual Sleep Out Broadway Edition is about bringing awareness and support to New York's largest NGO dedicated to providing shelter, food and crisis care for homeless, runaway and at risk youth.
Whenever a show makes this big move it is a cause for celebration. It suggests that the producing theaters created something of value, something that for-profit producers believe will be of interest to a far wider audience than any single regional theater can reach.
As I watched with a sickening sense of deja vu the images coming out of Ferguson, MO this week, I couldn't help but come to this conclusion: we have allowed a pernicious historical revisionism to undermine the legacy of the civil rights movement.
It can said that while Poor Behavior isn't reprehensibly bad, it also isn't what you might call good. Well, maybe relatively. But relative to what?
Has policing in New York actually changed during the first six months of Mayor Bill de Blasio's tenure? The devil may be in the details, but an initial look at the most recent statistics exposes an unforgiving truth: stop and frisk has hardly stopped.
While many developers pooh-pooh our model of 50 percent real affordability, it not only is achievable, but must be achieved. Equitable development will help create good jobs and put people to work building real affordable housing in neighborhoods that desperately need it.
