Children begin by loving their parents; then they judge them; rarely do they forgive them… There is no cure for the common birthday. And Zakki’s miraculous 21st was anything but common. Which proves the more b-days you have, the longer you live. And the longer you have to forgive your parents…

I have always maintained – even long before my younger son Zakki was born with just about every critical malady to overtax the frontiers of medical science — that the more birthdays you have the longer you live. And miraculously … Continue reading

Since we already know that everybody lies, why do journalists risk their lives to tell us what we already know? Because that’s what we do. And we’d do it even if we weren’t getting paid to tell you that you are stoopid, ignorant and foolish. Because it is so much fun, even after the deadline…

Our gossip and our glee in other folk’s misery, demonstrates our humongous lack of Common Sense in this world of win at all cost. Hmmm….so much for do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Just ask former IMF President Strauss-Kahn…

I met an old friend. We undressed each other. And learned what Washington should learn: There should be no place to hide your lies or secret agendas

The other day I bumped into the ex-wife of an old journalist compatriot I haven’t  seen in the last 25 years. Either one. And she looked marvelous. We had a long afternoon lunch. Then we had a longer late nite … Continue reading
