Corn & Christie debate the need for auto safety regulation on 50th of Unsafe at Any Speed (consensus yes) & for Net Neutrality (split decision). Also, do Bill-O's "war stories" matter since he's a) an influential public figure or b) a smug, blustery braggart as his business model?
I now declare that I am going vegan about twice a month, usually after being disturbed by the mistreatment of yet another animal in the mainstream dairy industry. And then I'm at a restaurant and spy a cheese plate on the menu and it even includes Gruyere. Oh Gruyere, you are my weakness.
Violence against women and girls is an epidemic of global proportions. Transcending geographic borders, economic and social class, religion and ethnicity, violence impacts women of all ages, in all communities around the world.
Four children are more than two handfuls but you'd never know it from watching Erin, an unflappable and energetic Emmy-winning costume designer for Sesame Street.
As a 34-year-old Muslim man with an older brother I look up to, I hated how much we had in common with 34-year-old Said Kouachi and his brother Cherif, the terrorists who murdered 12 at the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo.
"In this city, people are killing each other over marijuana more so than anything that we had to deal with an '80s and '90s with heroin and cocaine," said Bratton. "We just see marijuana everywhere when we make these arrests, when we get these guns off the streets."
Whether you're a film aficionado, a young collector, a fan of emerging art or merely interested in getting a finger on the pulse of what's going on in the art world at the present moment, there's plenty to do.
Unless it is radically changed, the mayor's plan will squander public assets, enrich real estate developers, but do very little for the record number of people living in the shelter system or at risk of landing there.
New York is celebrated as a leader in our nation's quest for progress because ours is a city built by the labor of a thousand different shades and accents. Now, it is the time to lead once more by championing inclusion towards the Muslim-American community at a time of rising tension, mistrust, and, yes, Islamophobia.
Members of a campaign called Safety Beyond Policing, at City Hall on Thursday denounced City Council's plan to put $97 million towards increasing the NYPD headcount by 1000 officers.
I refuse to sit idle while others attempt to dismantle Social Security. I will not surrender to the fuzzy math of the anti-government crowd who think deregulation and privatization is a panacea for all ills -- real or imagined. I have a simple proposal that would keep Social Security solvent without slashing benefits.
The Scandinavia House is one of the most delightful destinations in NYC. Just cross-town from the touristy Times Square, it sits quietly, yet alluringly at 58 Park Avenue, offering a restaurant, gift shop and the relaxing, clean lines of Scandinavian design. But that is not all this cultural oasis has going for it.
Were you born here?" I ask Michael, the stonemason who repairs the flagstones along my driveway. They are in shambles because of the constant freezing, thawing and refreezing in recent weeks.
Do we want to trap the next generation of New Yorkers in cycles of poverty and system involvement out of a misguided desire for retribution?
Father Keating's story, from age five to age 88, compelled me to watch the film twice. Though it is Jones' tribute to his uncle, he doesn't whitewash anything. Thomas hurts a good many people along the way, not the least being his family. Like any life, it isn't all pretty

The month of March is very busy and includes the important March for Gender Equality and Women's Rights on International Women's Day, March 8, 2015. Everyone is invited to join the march and to spread the word far and wide.
