  It seems that everything that was old is new again on television. First there was a Full House (one of my kids’ favorite shows) reboot on Netflix. That was followed by Will and Grace, which was the followed by Roseanne.     And now Murphy Brown is scheduled to return to television. What do you think about these reboots? Have you been watching?   ...

  Somehow, I connected Fred’s blog last week with voyeurism. He had written about the history of special prosecutors and my comment was, “To be a fly on the wall in the special prosecutor's office. . .”     Obviously, my comment indicated my real interest in the inner workings of Robert Mueller’s office. I would love to see the evidence he’s going through, how he’s sifting through it and coming to his conclusions;  what his process is.   If you could go behind anyone’s d...

  I have, reluctantly, realized that I’m a social media stalker. I initially joined Facebook with the sole intention of using it as a tool to see what my children were doing while away at college. As my personal use of Facebook increased, their personal use decreased significantly.     My children barely now, if ever, use Facebook. They do, however, post frequently on Snapchat and once a day on Instagram (apparently, it is not cool to post more than one post a day on Instag...

  Do you embarrass easily? I’ve been thinking a lot about embarrassment as a result of a chance encounter I had last week.     For many who may not know, I was divorced from my first husband in 1997. My divorce was a bit of a “scandal” in East Meadow-where we lived at the time-as my husband, a member of the school board had a relatively public affair with a PTA vice-president. As my children were very young at the time-one and six-I tried, as best as I could, to ignore the ...

  In the wake of the Me Too movement, there has been a lot of discussion about the changing of the country’s mindset with respect to sexual assault and sexual harassment. But, to me, it’s a lot more basic than that. We need to start from the ground up. It has to begin with changing mindsets about what sort of behavior and speech are appropriate. Two recent experiences I had, which happened within a day of each other, illustrate my point.     On a recent Friday afternoon I ...

  In a page out of Mitch’s playbook, I had to write about a story I read about in the news this week. Apparently, in France, the government has a say in what names a parent can use for their children. Up until 1993, parents can only choose names from an approved government list. While the list is no longer mandatory, the government has been known to intervene when it determines that children’s names are inappropriate.     Recently, in Brittany, France a baby girl was born w...

  Some people can do it and others can’t. I love to do it and I’m very good at it. I’m at my best at it when I’m home alone. Can you do it?     I’m talking about doing work at home (did you think I was talking about something else?) Oftentimes, if I have to be in court in the city in the morning, instead of heading back to the office afterwards, I’ll go home. I find that, that time when I alone in my house, I am at my most productive. There’s no distractions from the phone,...

  Corey Bearak is one of the true gems of Gotham. He is a gifted political strategist and always willing to help in that arena. In addition, however, he is always willing to help any Gotham member with any issue they may have whether it is in his area of expertise or not. He has often given me wonderful advice with respect to issues that appear to have nothing to do with his area of professional expertise. He truly deserved the honor of Networker of the Year.     In additio...

  My stepdaughter, Danielle Gura, teaches first grade in an inclusion class (the class is populated with both mainstream and special education children) in Brownsville, Brooklyn. Fifty-five percent of the children live in transitional housing (shelters). Approximately eighty percent of the school’s students qualify for free breakfast and lunch.     As one might expect the school is lacking in financial resources. So Danielle has consistently participated in fundraising on ...

  Next week my husband and I are travelling to Charlotte, North Carolina and then on to Charleston, South Carolina. In researching what to do in Charleston-my good friend from high school lives in Charlotte so she’ll be our “tour guide” there-it became apparent to me how rich Charleston is in history, culture, and cuisine. It also became quickly obvious how different Charleston’s culture was to ours here in the Northeast.       It amazes me how truly diverse cultures can ...
