If catcalling is just about how men are "hardwired" and therefore should be accepted, surely straight men should have no problem with gay men paying them compliments on their bodies and offering greetings on the street, right? Wrong. I don't even have to make the video to know what would happen. And that exposes the fallacy of catcallers who say that they're "just being men."
For me, this is the ultimate homecoming, not only because this is where I and my accent were born but because HuffPost is very firmly rooted in a Greek tradition of bringing people together and facilitating interesting conversations.
But one doesn't really leave the Times. The memories, the emotional attachment, are too embedded in one's subconscious to be obliterated by the mere act of departure.
Recently, the U.S. Department of Justice announced a groundbreaking initiative to take on one of the most damaging social problems facing the nation: the strained and often broken relationship between many communities and law enforcement. It is time, and past time.
I'm not sure what I think of Edward Albee's play A Delicate Balance or even what I think of this particular production. All I can discuss is this particular performance, an evening filled with difficulties.
We put together a list of seven things you must do before being christened as a true New Yorker. (Sidenote: if you have taken a bus tour in the last two years, this list is null and void. You will need to reapply for New Yorker accreditation in the next three years.)

And this behavior is only slowing the company down.
I know that as with race writ large, race in the newsroom will not change overnight. In fact, it may get worse before it gets better. But that knowledge in and of itself allows me to forge on.
Truth is, I absolutely adore Manhattan during the holidays. There's no better place in the world. It was tough to come up with a top five must do list, but I considered everything from literary lushness to naked ambition.
As they used to say in the '20s and '30s and often on the midway, "Nice try, but no cigar."
My heart belongs to the ladies on 14th Street who stood with me night after night, trying to survive and just be their authentic selves. I cry today for those ladies who are no longer here with us in 2014, but my heart remembers them.
An opportunity for our artists and arts institutions to lead, globally, is to approach their identity and creation of art holistically and with intention--to be global citizens
Governor Cuomo should veto the legislation. A new mold bill should be written that includes stiff penalties. The bill should also require training of all mold workers, photographic documentation, and third party verification that mold remediation is properly completed.
It is true that the members of the New York Police Department are underpaid and under-appreciated. But since when do we honor people for being decent human beings? Although noble, I find this very troubling.
Scrutinized closely, which it's easy to do during director Pam McKinnon's Delicate Balance revival, at the Golden, Tobias and Agnes are very much a George-Martha do-over.
