Zero Tolerance for Staying on The Sidelines

The story began weeks ago but took a while to become front and center. The new Zero Tolerance Immigration Policy at the border resulted in children being separated from their parents. From what I recall, it was the misguided reference to a passage in the Bible by our Attorney General that brought this to the… Continue Reading

A Visit to Minetta Lane

New York is about as modern as any city in the world.  Once it began marching northward in 1811 with its grand grid design, all of the new blocks were both spacious and predictable.  Over the years, the never-ending building boom replaced older structures with new modern spaces at remarkable speeds.

They Don’t Belong Here

You know the ones…they took our jobs and drained our resources…they need to go back to where they came from. A major newspaper explained their racial inferiority through a series of detailed articles and things became uncomfortable for them—some left.  Bus companies did their part and offered one-way reduced fare tickets.  The Federal government hired… Continue Reading
