Something to Really Gripe About

Oh, the injustice of it all! Stolen elections are one thing. But an underappreciated First Lady and former fashion model rudely snubbed! How much hardship can one man bear? As usual, Trump’s remarks are way off-key. Griping from the balmy

“Ma Nishtana” – Why Is This Christmas Different Than Every Other?

In anything but a normal year, how could we ever expect a normal Christmas? Christmas will feel different. The one constant we can count on will be Santa Claus who thanks to Dr. Faucci received his vaccine and will continue

Thanksgiving –  A No Fly Holiday

As much a tradition as pumpkin pie, the pre-holiday images of over-crowded airports, knee-deep with weary travelers in a tangle of luggage and shopping bags headed home for the holidays is a familiar Thanksgiving trope. We see it year after
