This blog concerns some “wonders” of Gotham. I planned another topic. I committed myself to another topic. Somehow Friday’s blogger On Dec 11, 2020, at 4:39 PM, Fred Klein wrote: Great blog subject convinced me to share this account.  Sometime around 3:30 p.m. Friday afternoon, as I am leaving my car, I hear WFAN Craig Carton telling Evan Roberts to stop by a Philly Pretzel Factory store Saturday after a “Drive-By giveaway for New York Mets Season Ticket holders at Citifield....
Since Gotham allowed me to regularly blog in this space I used this Sunday before Election Day to urge folks to exercise their right to vote.  It remains something I feel very strongly about.  The first professional remarks I ever drafted involved such participation in our electoral process.  An editorial I drafted during law school where I edited CONSCIENCE further developed the discussion.  I often focused on ways to induce greater participation.  Watching the early voting ...
The phrase titling this blog comes from lyrics in a John Lennon tune. If I just chose the first two words, it recalls the title of The Doors’ second LP, Strange Days, featuring their second hit, “People Are Strange.”   We keep reading how less busy those not working in “critical” aka “essential” functions find themselves. Perhaps. Not here. Since things came to a head one would think some us would have more time. In meetings of my Gotham Network (which hosts this and six othe...
President’s weekend honors our first and 16th Presidents. Why not honor them by extolling public and community service? Many we know toil in government gigs at all levels. Next time your see them or speak to them (or email or message them), just thank them. Many of them and many of you also perform some community service. Describe something better than doing giving back in that way. It makes a difference. It makes the community better. It makes life better. It makes the world...
It’s a new beginning today.   Yes my Jets start their season this afternoon with many of us holding rather high expectations, especially for the offense. I certainly plan to tune in this afternoon. But today’s blog covers another re-boot of sorts.   This beginning involves a homecoming of sorts.  A return to New York. Several years ago our daughter, Marisa, and friend Nicole took off for L.A.  It was a nice road trip and pictures, emails and texts were shared throughout.  The...
With Spring comes a number of “flings” – that means fundraisers. Many adopt causes. Some causes adopt others. Some come from relationships and involvements. Certainly explains mine.   I chair the Board of Directors on Services Now for Adult Persons (“SNAP” before the acronym had other worthy uses!). The Board’s biggest concern involves the completion of a new center to house several of our programs and offices, including a senior center serving four communities where I spent...
After I put last week’s blog to bed, I noticed responses on twitter to a New York Times column that appeared on line last weekend – ahead of its appearance in print, one week ago today. The op-ed played on the apparent rejection by Queens residents of Amazon. The writer – incredulously to this commentator and many who shared their own valid views on twitter – found my home borough “a good place to leave.” Worse, the Times gave a title, “When Queens was lame” that so mislabele...

So much experienced last week. Some truly tragic involving loss.  Revelations about hurt inflicted on others. Developments (ongoing) on the government side (not just in D.C.). A very successful function supporting a great program including its two centers serving seniors (where I serve as board chair). A great concert and an anniversay both of which I had blogged about in advance.   This morning I reserve for Number Five (5). A great Met; probably their greatest position play...

"Your Turn," that is the name of the 10 min film you are encouraged to watch if you are chosen to be in the Jury select pool in New York State. It promotes the idea that you are doing a great service and the trials will be "fascinating." I'll leave it up to our litigating Gothamites to answer that one. For $40 a day, if you are not being paid be an employer. My Dad, 25 years ago in Gwinett County, GA, received $75 per day.   Today is Day 1 and we shall see what happens. I h...

It starts with a box. Charter Communications recently acquired TimeWarner Cable (TWC). It provides my Internet, cable TV and home phone. Apart from what's now called TWC New York 1 (cable news), nothing really distinguishes the service from its competitor which in one configuration or another provides the service for the phone number longest associated with me. What really bugs this commentator involves the “remote” and the cable box. The latter's latest iteration only o...
