Letter: 3-on-3 Tourney Chairman Offers a Word of Thanks

Recently, hundreds of people locally went to Madison Square Garden to watch the WNBA’s Liberty take on the San Antonio Silver Stars. The game was truly terrific and everybody had a great time. The circumstances revolving around this game, however, are much more important.

Remembering the Great Heat Wave of 1896


Last weekend, relief finally arrived with more balmy temperatures giving us respite from the merciless heat. It was the second hottest July on record and I’m happy to say that, with the ushering in of August, the weather is something we can, once again, enjoy rather then endure. The month of August, however, wasn’t so pleasant 114 years ago as New York was cooked by the most brutal and sensational heat wave in its history.

The Upside of Anger

Anger — it’s one of the seven deadly sins. No emotion is more destructive than unrelenting and undying anger. It ruins relationships and robs the soul of peace. A recent article by Eric Felton on Mel Gibson’s mental meltdown warned that only Zeus could blow a gasket without looking ridiculous.

Wishing the Boy Scouts of America a Happy 100th Birthday

Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent is, of course, the Boy Scouts Code of Honor. Not a small thing to aspire to, for any number of reasons, not least of which every Boy Scout I knew could tie a great knot — a useful thing to know, especially for someone like me who has trouble knotting my shoelaces properly.

America’s Future Can Still Be Brighter Than Its Glorious Past


It is the morning of July 4, 2010, America’s 234th birthday. As a nation we’ve been around for a while although not nearly as long as many European and Asian countries. In 1987 Paul Kennedy, a Yale history professor, published his influential book, The Rise and Fall of Great Powers in which he saw parallels between America and the Roman and British empires in their twilight.

The Majesty of Lady Liberty

A cold and steady rain fell on the afternoon of Oct. 28, 1886, but it didn’t deter tens of thousands of excited spectators from huddling around the southern tip of Manhattan to see the great unveiling. At the given signal the veil began to slowly drop from the massive statue, 151 feet tall (not including the still-to-be-built pedestal) as “Lady Liberty” triumphantly overlooked the great New York Harbor.
