President Obama mentioned that he is reading various Presidential biographies to help him navigate the vagaries of American Politics. My suggestions is that he listen to scores from Broadway Musicals with political themes. In fact, Pippin comes to mind. It’s the story of a young prince who tries to do everything possible for all the people in his kingdom and finds out that it’s not so simple…Read More →

Perhaps President Obama should visit the post office for a day. That would make for an interesting episode of Undercover Boss. I just spent nearly a half hour at the Yorkville post office in NYC trying to mail a birthday card to my son in the UK. If you ever need an example of how NOT to run a business, this is it!

Both political parties are stumbling because they are attempting to use antiquated “business” models to govern our country. The US is not the Free World Colossus it once was. Detroit, Buffalo, New Haven were once great cities but no more. We are no longer everybody’s rich or Dutch Uncle.Read More →

Why is it always Republicans who invoke the word of God? Does Carl Paladino meet God at Starbucks once a week to talk about gay people and school prayer? Please Carl, shut up and deal with real political problems!Read More →

Paul Krugman’s Op-Ed piece in The New York Times (10-4-2010) calling Fox News “The Ministry of Propaganda” is anything but fair and balanced.  I am a Democrat and appear regularly on Fox News (Strategy Room).  My opinions are always welcome and I’ve always been given free rein to speak my mind.Read More →

Clip reel from a sketch comedy show containing a commercial parody about lawyers, man-on-the-street interviews (is Dick Cheney scarier than Lon Chaney?) and the true story of Charles Bronson’s reincarnation as a plant.Read More →
