It was one of those puff-piece New York Post assignments that landed in my lap once in a while back in the day, and that was fine by me -- no crime, no chalk outlines on the street, no survivors to interview.
Anna, in my books, is aging gracefully and has not quite reached the non-exclusive membership club for the elderly.
I realize that in relation to the digital colosseum the sad print tabloid industry is merely a fungus on the underside of a rotting stump. But that doesn't excuse its existence.
Growing up in my family, the most suspenseful words any of us could hear were, "Know who died?" Whoever spoke those words had the drop on the rest of...
The National Popular Vote plan is constitutional, nonpartisan, and better for all Americans than our current system. An interstate compact, it will guarantee the election of the candidate who wins the most popular votes in all 50 states and D.C.
Discouraging new forms of entrepreneurism that threaten established businesses, is a classic form of government interference that affects many different industries in the urban marketplace.

Here's the reality: the Gila monster, the Joshua tree and human beings are all solar-powered creatures on a solar-powered planet. Lizards, trees, humans and the rest of the earth depend on the sun for warmth and growth.
The New York Post is having trouble understanding some basic tenets of democracy, which explains why they found my invitation for you to join us in court for today's important hearing in our stop-and-frisk case "troubling."
Fox News is its ministry of misinformation, the fake jewel of the News Corp. crown, a 24/7 purveyor of flimflam and the occasional selective truth. Look at the pounding they've given Obama's healthcare reform right from the very start.
George Rush and Joanna Molloy's "SCANDAL: A Manual, The Inside Story of America's Infamous Gossip Columnists" (Skyhorse/Norton) is the most fun read I've had all year -- possibly in several years.
