The Roanoke Times features my letter to the editor about rationalizing political violence.

I discovered this morning that The Roanoke Times published my latest letter to the editor; it appeared on November 21.  (This was my letter about drawing comparisons between the January 6th attack on the Capitol and protests by Black Lives Matter.)  

You can find it right here.

Thanks, as always, the the editorial staff of The Roanoke Times for the opportunity to share my point of view with my neighbors.



Throwback Thursday: these 1988 commercials for Carvel Ice Cream and Genovese!

I am linking here to the Youtube channel Hugo Faces, which is a treasure trove of 1980’s local television clips for Long Island and elsewhere.  That Carvel ad is as priceless as it is cheesy.

These aired on WCBS.



The Piker Press features “Her Smile Was Silver Jupiter”

I am so honored today that The Piker Press published my prose love poem, “Her Smile Was Silver Jupiter.”  You can find it at the link below.

Thanks, as always, to Managing Editor Sand Pilarski for allowing me to share my voice at The Piker Press!

“Her Smile Was Silver Jupiter”



I call it “The Duke’s Tavern.”

How’s this for a stroke of genius?  My latest kick is ordering large cheeseburgers from The Texas Tavern (without the relish and mustard), and then adding Duke’s Mayonnaise at home.

I AM A CONNISEUR.   (Or a connoisseur.  I can never spell that word on the first try.)
