The 9-year-old "Killer"
08/28/2014 10:55:59 AM
The word "killer" carries with it endless probabilities for present and future life difficulties for anyone who has that appellation applied to them. Killers are avoided, shamed, run out of neighborhoods, hounded by anyone who believes they can get away with it and generally lead lives on the margin..
Jiminy Cricket is a Liar!

When you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are...When you wish upon a star, your dreams come true!
Shut up, Jiminy! You know that ain't true. You're a BUG. You couldn't be a lawyer or a banker or a doctor if you wished on every star in the galaxy! Cool hat, though.I'm s..
What Does Your Ringtone Say About You?
08/26/2014 16:49:33 PM
Cell phones are everywhere and we wonder now how we ever got along without them. Looking back just a few years, did you see that huge, walkie-talkie-like device Michael Douglas totted with him on the beach in "Wall Street?" It looked like he was calling in a position for a rocket or something...

So, how did this actually happen? I’m far from being a writer, and would not even attempt to place that label on myself. At times I find it hard to put together proper sentence structure. Heck, I can barely speak English. More like a babbling idiot that somehow scribbles his thoughts onto pape..
The Penrose – a bit of downtown cocktail vibe on the UES.
08/26/2014 00:11:37 AM
Ok, to me it’s more like 3.5 stars, and I’m not all goo goo gushy about The Penrose as most are who seem to rave about the place, yet I’ll bump it to 4 stars for the cocktails! Sure, it’s a wonderful addition to the exploding UES/Yorkville bar and foodie scene but t..
Cooperstown Diner – where you get a meatloaf as a burger!

I’m a diner kind of guy and to me there is nothing wrong with an occasional trek into one to have some filling sloppy comfort food. The Cooperstown Diner was a recent find that totally satiated my lunch cravings for something big to chow down on.Of course, when we were in Cooperstown..
Why I've Kept My Mental Illness Private
08/24/2014 18:35:21 PM
I remember when I was a teen, my best friend told me that I was secretive. I must admit, there was a part of me that was offended at the time. Although I thought myself to be more private than secretive, I shared so much of myself with my best friend. As I began sifting thro..

Pigeonholing? What is it?
I was reading a very good article about how we sabotage ourselves. (The Headlines You've Written About Yourself Are Wrong), they mentioned "pigeonholing". It's not a term I hear very often so I looked it up. Pigeonhole - use..
How to Help Kids Do Better in School
08/19/2014 14:52:12 PM
Everyone knows that schooling provides many things, least of which is an opportunity to be a seeker of knowledge, although I doubt any kid would say that's why they go to school. Most probably, they'd say they go to school because their parents make them go to school and a lot of them will ev..
The Misery That Is Language
08/17/2014 09:41:41 AM
Language, or so we've been led to believe, is the means we use to communicate. True and it can be that communication that we abuse. In our superiority, we assume that it is what places us above every other living creature on this earth. We are wrong. It may be the very thing that places us low..
