NYC Notes: Matzo Running Wild In The Streit’s

I’ve never been a big fan of Martha Stewart. But today Martha surprised me, so I may have to revise my position. More details to follow. In the meantime, back to our week in NYC. The good news is that we landed at JFK after a cross-country flight and my back felt fine. The bad news … Continue reading

NYC Notes: Patek Philippe Has Left The Building

This theater of the absurd scenario might be more plausible than you think, and occurred to me last … Continue reading

Stretched For Income? Invest In Gatorade [Bottles]

Like me, I’m sure that many of your beer-drinking friends go on about the  hundreds of dollars they ‘make’ by taking their crushed aluminum cans … Continue reading

Some Parts Of Immigration Reform Really Ain’t Rocket Science

Ah, the immigration debate ramps up again. It shouldn’t take a Rocket Scientist to figure out, that by definition, enforcement requires a way to distinguish between the legals and illegals. Common sense should tell you that the only way to do that on a day-to-day basis is with a National Identity Card authenticated by some … Continue reading
