Okay, it’s that time.  Hear the waves crashing?  Let’s all gather ‘round the fire—I’ve got plenty of dry wood, there’s wine and beer in the cooler.  Moon is almost full, that silver light shimmering off the ocean— awesome.  Puts me in the mood for some summer music, how about you guys?  Thought...

I was flailing a bit, trying to figure out what the next column might be about when my partner Brian suggested, “How about Kidz Bop?”  To which I replied, “What the hell is Kidz Bop?”  “Look it up,” he deadpanned.  Brian has two beautiful little girls, ages 5 and 9.

So, turns out that...

As the world knows, I’m a liberal.  Social and fiscal.  So, for like-minded citizens these are not easy times.  You’ve seen me talking to myself on the street, in the subway.  Don’t be concerned—I’ll be fine.  Just wanted to establish the context. From the immigration ban to defunding Planned...
