I am at a loss to know what to do with certain thoughts and feelings following the midterm elections. more
The Dec. 16 edition of “60 Minutes” on CBS presented a major segment on the scourge of plastics. more
Passersby may have noticed the new AutoZone store on West 234th Street and Broadway. The ugly gray-and-orange building is an affront to the dignity of our shared public space.

Like lemmings heading over the cliff, in near unanimity, the board of director of the Friends of Van Cortlandt Park has elected to terminate the participation of 13 of its active directors in the hope that this deed will somehow bring to fruition the repeatedly delayed merger with the park’s conservancy. more
Back when I had far more time to read books — something that feels like an eternity ago these days — I would come to a complete stop when I found some sort of typographical or grammatical error in the text. more
