When you get older you don’t stop doing stupid things… you just do them slower. Actually I always thought growing older would take longer. After all, adults may be obsolete children, but you are never too old to grow younger – especially when you go to pay for a beer and a dog at a baseball game…

Between one of the baseball innings the other night, Gary, who I hadn’t seen in years and who enjoyed reminding me that he is 69, leaned across the seat vacated between us and admired out loud how I was still … Continue reading

To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stoopid, you must also be well-mannered. And in Israel, in order to be a realist you must believe in miracles. So, how many more sons must die before the Israelis and Palestinians realize nobody wants them — and that’s why they should want each other.

I have buried a younger brother. And scores of friends and relatives. A father. Numerous enemies. And lots of secrets. And undoubtedly the sad day will all-too-soon arrive to bury my fragile younger son who miraculously has reached the age … Continue reading

The most distressing thing that can happen to a prophet is to be proved wrong. The next most distressing thing is to be proved right. Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us and seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted…

I think I may have been a tad wrong a few years back when I wrote a feisty gut-check newspaper column about what we ought to do with surly, pugnacious disruptive public school students. Just a tad. And perhaps now … Continue reading

Will someone please inform the LGBT that not everyone in the world is either Gay or anti-Gay! Hey, I was once a man trapped in a woman’s body. Of course, that was before I was born…But please: Don’t touch my heroes – even in the funny pages…Or I-ah-break-ah-your-ah-face-ah….

What has happened to this Frenchman IMF chief happened to me. By my own sick, lying wife. And the lying lawyers and the DAs. After my wife self destructed the charges were quickly withdrawn. But not my hell and repercussions. And no one helps.

I don’t understand  how a man — like me, for instance — would dare to enter one of his ex-wives’ houses — invited or not — without a video camera, tape recorder and an elephant gun. And that’s just so … Continue reading

When it comes to unions, Republicans and Democrats everyone seems to forget: Don’t use a hatchet to remove a fly from a friend’s forehead.

So tell me who is lying. The unions stipulate that at least 12 workers a day across the country are being killed because the government isn’t funding OSHA to check on all the dangerous working conditions, especially for immigrant laborers … Continue reading
