  I generally keep my political views off of social media. I never quite understood the use of social media to express individual political views. I always felt it was better to express one’s politics in more conventional ways, voting, rallying, and financial contributions.     If you’re my friend on Facebook, you know that I did post a political position this week. I am not going to debate the political issue here. I will only say that I felt it necessary to voice my op...

This week was a big week in history, the John F. Kennedy assignation files were released. Nearly 3,000 secret government files related to John F. Kennedy’s 1963 assassination have been made public more than 50 years after he was gunned down as he and his motorcade rode through Texas’ Dealey Plaza.   Now, we have received  an up-close look at authorities’ struggle to make sense of the death and determine Lee Harvey Oswald‘s motive for shooting the president. The document dump ...

In the spirit of the open discussion that Mitch began last week, I share the following thoughts.   Most people who know me know that I enjoy pop culture  as a diversion from the day to day. I read People magazine weekly, I watch the Real Housewives while on the treadmill, and thanks to a certain Gothamite who shall remain nameless I read a certain fashion blog while eating lunch at my desk. So, for someone like me the current season, that being the awards season, i.e. Golden ...

I want to thank Mitch for his blog this past Saturday.  His words helped me to decide to publish the foregoing.   Since the presidential election, there has been a political détente going on in my home. Half of the members of my household are fiscal conservatives, although socially liberal and the other half of my household are both fiscally and socially liberal. Conversations immediately after the election were both emotional and heated. Therefore, since the November electio...

Today I am feeling vindicated.  In the past, have written blogs about my experience being called, “Honey” or “B###h,” by male attorneys or, otherwise being sexually harassed. In the blogs, I wrote about my feelings of degradation and anger.   Last week The New York Times reported that The American Bar Association is considering an amendment to the Rules of Professional Practice that would prohibit harassment and discrimination by lawyers  in the course of practicing law on th...

One of the only rules for Gotham bloggers, that I am aware of, is that we are supposed to stay away from “political topics.” Understanding the reasons for it, I absolutely agree with this rule. But I find it so difficult to write today without acknowledging the tragedy of Malaysia Flight 17 and the conflict in Israel. Both incidents have made me profoundly sad. If anyone cares to see my political point of view on the Israeli conflict I have, for the first time, “share...

Monica Lewinsky’s name is again all over the internet due an essay she has written that is to appear in the new issue of Vanity Fair. In the article she details a very difficult sixteen years in the time since her name became a household word. Most quoted on the internet is the following passage that appears in the essay, "Sure, my boss [Bill Clinton] took advantage of me, but I will always remain firm on this point: it was a consensual relationship.” She goes on to...

Anyone who knows me knows I am not a sports fan. I do, however, look forward to the Super Bowl. I enjoy having friends and family over and sharing the evening with them. Mostly, though, I enjoy the hype of the commercials. I look forward to how the sponsors are going to top the productions of the prior years. And while I am sure most people will be discussing this morning the effect the thirty minute black-out had on the game, I am more qualified to discuss the commercials. ...

Before Johnny could react, Joey had thrown him into the backseat of a large black sedan-he thought it was a Crown Imperial-that was waiting right outside the back door of the club. Johnny recognized the driver, it was little Bernie Just. “Hey kid, aren’t you the weeknight photographer at the Stork Club? What are you doing here?” asked Johnny. “Relax Johnny,” Joey responded. “He’s one of us. Idlewild Airport, Bernie. And step on it.” Immediately, the car raced into the rain...

While my children may disagree, I don`t believe that my husband and I have too many rules that we expect them to abide by. Besides the obvious of being courteous and respectful to others and keeping their rooms relatively neat, they all still have curfews and are, generally, not allowed out with their friends on school nights. We have one rule, however, that’s always been a source of controversy with them; no cell phones are allowed at the table during meals. While my childr...
