Just spending five minutes listening to the news today, I've realized how many lessons there are to be learned in this world. 1) If you dare to test fire missiles, produce nuclear weapons-grade materials, threaten to shoot a missile at Hawaii, and generally act like a mad man, the United States...

Okay, to start off with, two disclaimers: first, I'm a big Sinatra fan, always have been, and secondly, I was too young to swear that this story isn't apocryphal, but if memory serves me right, somewhere in the early to mid-1970's, one of my favorite disc jockeys at the time, Jonathan Schwartz, was...

  It's a holiday weekend so there's a part of my brain that tells me I shouldn't be doing the ordinary, but rather should be kicking back all weekend while in some way honoring those who fight for our country. Will writing this blog as a form of free speech work? Here on Long Island we've gotten...

In book publishing the publishers generally pay the author an advance against royalties—meaning, the author gets some money up front, and if the book earns back that amount plus other expenses, the author will start getting more money. Most authors get relatively small advances that aren’t enough...

I admittedly was surprised when I heard John McCain's choice for his running mate at first. Sarah Palin? Who? I honestly had no clue who she was, and I kept expecting the CNN online story to change the name to Lieberman, Romney, or hell, even Pawlenty. But alas, the story did not change. Sarah...

Okay, so I keep getting email about President Obama's "Special Olympics" remark on Leno last night, so I thought I'd address it here. I don't seem to be seeing a lot of reaction to other special needs parenting writers on the subject, but I suspect that's because most of them see the big...

This is bound to be controversial, but here goes: for the good of our national interests, Hillary Clinton needs a boob job. I’m not talking something that will enhance the Secretary of State’s already womanly figure. I’m talking about porn tits. Major league yabos. Ta tas ‘til Tuesday. And, yes,...

 Sarah Palin is not a happy camper, or so she told Politico. The Alaska governor thinks that the press is giving Caroline Kennedy preferential treatment. She is interested in seeing how Kennedy "will be handled," and whether the media will use kid gloves. Moreover, the former Republican...

You've probably seen this today.   If not, head's up!  (Sorry, it's really not funny).   For future reference, Sarah, don't give interviews in front of a slaughter house, at least while head-chopping is going on.   http://www.youtube.com/v/z-kjM1asH-8&colorl=Oxlblbl&color2=Oxcfcfcf&fs=l...

I hear literary agents are wooing Sarah Palin. I can also hear the tut-tuts doing the rounds with a sneer. Oh dear, she will cash in on this, they will say. Sure as hell she will, as she must. If others can capitalise on her “blonde moment” and her banality, then so can she. Forget her politics,...
