Don't waste your sympathy on Michael Cohen

Don't waste your sympathy on Michael Cohen
Michael Cohen’s eyes tell the story. It was a sad scene as Cohen and his family walked into a federal court on Wednesday. The look on their faces showed they all knew he was going to prison. The only thing they didn’t know was that it would be for thirty-six months. THREE YEARS!!! Going to... Read more »

Steve Winwood and Joan Jett join Michael J. Fox to fight Parkinson's Disease

Steve Winwood and Joan Jett join Michael J. Fox to fight Parkinson's Disease
When you think of Michael J. Fox, what first comes to mind? Is it Alex P. Keaton from “Family Ties?” Marty McFly from “Back to the Future?” Maybe his characters from “Teen Wolf”, “Spin City” or “The Good Wife?” I think his legacy will be the work that he’s doing in the fight against Parkinson’s...

The mid-term elections are over: Are you happy with the results?

The mid-term elections are over: Are you happy with the results?
It’s Wednesday morning. The mid-terms are over. There wasn’t exactly a blue wave. There wasn’t exactly a red tsunami. When you take a close look there was something for everyone to be happy about….and to be sad about. If you’re a Democrat, you’re ecstatic that the House has turned blue. They’ll be in charge of...

Signs for an election day in Lakeview

The first sign is for J.B. Pritzker. He's the Democrat running for Governor. You would think our current Governor, Bruce Rauner would care enough to put up a sign. Maybe he's given up?
It’s a great day. Election day in America. The opportunity for the people of this country to make their voices heard. I live in the Lakeview area of Chicago. North side….home of the Cubs…very Democratic…except for the Cubs. There are two polling places within a mile of me. I decided to check them both out... Read more »

If they aren't calling you Kike to your face, you know they're thinking it

If they aren't calling you Kike to your face, you know they're thinking it
The year is 1965. I’m a child of twelve and living in Skokie, Illinois. At that time, it’s hard to find a more Jewish community in the United States. On my block, there were two families that weren’t Jewish. One was a friend of mine who lived across the street. The other included a adult... Read more »

Fourteen days: Why wouldn't you vote?

Fourteen days: Why wouldn't you vote?
The date was November 7, 1972. Election day. George McGovern vs Richard Nixon for the presidency of the United States of America. Sounds like a heavyweight title fight, doesn’t it. Only if the boxers were Mike Tyson vs Michael Spinks. Both events were over in less than two minutes. The reason I bring up that... Read more »

    My so called friends think it's time to edit this section. After four years, they may be right, but don't tell them that. I'll deny it until they die! I can't believe I've been writing this blog for four years. It started as a health/wellness thing and over the years has morphed to include so many things that I don't know how to describe it anymore. I really thought this was going to be the final year of the blog but then Donald Trump came along. It looks like we're good for four more years..God help us all! Oh yeah...the biographical stuff. I'm not 60 anymore. The rest you can read about in the blog.
