I recently took the 2 featured photographs:"Murder The Rich" and "Kill Money" The messages are clear. Are they too chilling to ignore?Could there be Revolution in the air?...

Today is the beginning of the NCAA basketball tournament -- otherwise often referred to as “March Madness”. I didn't fill out my brackets and selections for the office pool. I participate in two office pools: one is a lottery pool and the other is the Superbowl pool. Both of these pools are completely random -- a function of luck and chance. Unless you're throwing darts at the board, the March Madness pool requires some knowledge of college basketball. Therefore, I'll s...

Recently Rob Portman, Senator and perennial presidential candidate wrote an op-ed piece for CNN.  He not only announced a philosophical change in his belief on gay marriage, but also described the intellectual process by which the change occurred. This is not a piece debating gay marriage, but rather a discussion on breathing room and tolerance for those to change what they believe in.  Some may be skeptical, and we have certainly seen recent accusations of high-level politic...

Let’s start with, I hate that word . . .”perfect”. Perfect doesn’t really exist but this weekend for me it did. My son was bar mitzvahed this weekend. And, the entire weekend was everything that we could have hoped for. Pride in his accomplishments, pleasure in being able to celebrate with our family and friends, and more than one good meal. If you have been to a bar or bat mitzvah, you know that the mitzvah child gives a speech at the end of which he/she extends than...

It was an event we were happily anticipating for several weeks. I should, actually, say that we had been anticipating this event for several years because I remember distinctly where and when I was told about this event. And since I don’t remember much these days, that’s saying a lot. The event was on Saturday night. My husband and I were all dressed up and ready to go. We got in our car and my husband typed the address of our destination into the GPS. Then the unthinkable ...

  I think my wife may be leaving me.  You know when you just have a hunch about something, and find little signs?  It is for Justin Timberlake.  She seems to be watching his music videos a lot lately and smiling and talking about him.  I am not even sure he knows it yet, but she is coming.   I have to say that it is not a bad choice, especially with his new pompadour.  I would probably leave me for him too.  I may offer to settle the matter by agreeing that she can spend a w...

An upstate Assemblyman from Putnam County, Steve Katz, was stopped for speeding (80mph in a 65mph zone...not bad) when the officer smelled that smell. He found a bag of marijuana and Mr. Katz was ticketed for possesion.   The funny part is that he was one of 50 Assembly members who voted against legalizing medical marijuana last June. That bill did not pass the Senate but it does make an interesting point. What goes around certainly does come around :)   Maybe he should join ...

Lately the concept of Control has come to the fore and into focus. Control is defined as "To exercise authority or dominating influence over; direct; regulate". The definition brings back the memory Alexander Haag blurting (erroneously) "I am in control",  just after Reagan was shot. I really didn't consider my self a controlling type person until recently when a new acquaintance entered my life and I suddenly found myself in uncomfortable situations. I pondered my discomfort...

I have met "The Professor" several times, mostly through mutual friends. She taught at a major University in New York City. She was, by all accounts, a very popular and beloved teacher. I learned recently that The Professor was no longer teaching. I doubt that there was "cause" for her leaving -- certainly her departure was not the result of a decline in her class enrollment or because of budget cuts. The popular teacher was forced to retire because of a mandatory retir...

Yes society was saved by the recent court ruling banning large sodas.  It was an obvious ruling that couldn't have surprised anyone, but I suppose it wasn't the type of thing people get too wound up over.  Take away their right to a gun or an abortioin and people lose their minds, but big sodas...seems a little silly to get upset over.   As I was sitting in front of the shopping center waiting for our take out dinner to be ready, I saw a number of people walking around who we...

I do. With some frequency, actually. Last week, Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer banned telecommuting, a practice that had become welcomed and accepted throughout her workplace. The change caused quite a stir (as did her controversial 2 week maternity leave last year after the birth of her first child). Telecommuting has become so commonplace in today’s workplaces that it is touted as a critical tool for talent retention. Ms. Mayer’s expressed concern, however, is that lack of inter...

I was very saddened to hear this week that Valerie Harper, the actress who played Rhoda Morgenstern on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and, thereafter, on the spin-off, “Rhoda” has terminal cancer. As a young girl, I loved watching “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” with my friends. While my friends all seemed to identify with Mary, it was the character of Rhoda that truly resonated with me. Unlike Mary, Rhoda was not physically “perfect.” She did not have naturally straight hai...

I would not be a very good president.  Not that anyone is asking.  Most of us are not thinking about the next race already having grown tired of the last one.  But just to be clear for the record, I am not running and will not accept my party's nomination.   For one, as nice as the White House must be, I would not work well at home.  I would be going down to the Oval Office barefoot in my flannel pajama bottoms, my oversize Wisconsin long sleeve tshirt with Bucky the Badg...

With the explosion of apps and online business models, it was just a matter of time before someone came up with this. A service that will continue to post to Facebook and Twitter and even LinkedIn after you're gone and not just in a different room...gone from this reality.   If I die lets you post a video or text message on Facebook. Their tagline "What will you leave behind?". The video on the home page is funny. If you think it's creepy they already have 200,000 users.   A...
