It's going to take a decade or more to clean away the stench left behind by a one-term Trump Administration. If he gets another term, the America that we love may well cease to exist.


Israel has lost its way and is in real danger of losing whatever international support if once had. I, for one, would like to be able to root for it again.


You’d figure that having done Lent for all these years that it would get easier. I’ve certainly learned from some of my mistakes so at least I’m not making things worse as the years go by. Here's my five toughest Lents.

Tonight, when most of you—if you’re lucky!—will be watching the episode that comes before the penultimate episode of The Good Place (don’t tell me what happens), I’ll be at the Fox Theatre, awash in the sweet funk/soul sounds of what remains of one of my favorite groups of all time, the Average White Band.


Things I learned over Christmas Break:


Let’s just call this 2020 foresight:


Two thousand nineteen was a rather somber year for me, but it was not without its entertainment highlights. As always, these are my favorite things and not in any way judged to be the “The Best.”
