      Runs Like A Girl.

      Dear Donald Trump, I really must thank you. After losing my 2011 election for Nassau County legislator by 106 votes (less than 1%), and being subsequently gerrymandered into an unwinnable, legislative Republican district, I swore I’d never run for political office again. But then, there you were, victorious on Election Night 2016, and I was […]

      “Thoughts and Prayers”

      In December 2012, I sat at my desk on the upper west side of Manhattan and received a news alert of kindergartners and first graders being killed in their school.  As with most all parents that day, I immediately thought of my sons, one of whom was in Kindergarten, the other of whom was in […]

I believe I first heard that quote from a woman wiser than me; perhaps Toni Morrison or Maya Angelou.  Yet today, when I searched online for the author of origin, I found none.  In a time when original thoughts and […]
