Driving the Left Crazy


For the past two years, the Metropolitan Museum of Art has been working on renovating the plaza in front of the museum along it's 6 block facade on 5th Avenue. This month, the new plaza opened (pictured above).

Favorite Brush With Fame of 2014


Having Fun During a Busy Time

Let's just say that the past few months, I've been swamped. In the process of being swamped, I've also tried to have a little fun. The school where I taught this year had asked me to perform in their variety show after the director heard about my past singing experiences - no, no record contract, just muscial theatre in high schoool, Madrigals in college and a little karaoke when the mood strikes. In this video, here I am. Apparently, I brought the house down! I come on at about 4:00 of the video.

Poltical meet-ups and speeches



A little over a year ago, I wrote about Dr. Ben Carson, who has taken the political right by storm. About two months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting him in New York City at the New York Meeting; the monthly poltical confab organized by Mallory Factor and O'Brien Murray.

Dr. Carson gave an impassioned speech about common sense solutions to the ills and problems that America faces. He also was open about answering questions from the panelists, especially about his perceieved "Second Amendment Challenges" and even answered my question about the possible role of pop culture and entertainment forces influencing and promoting education among inner city youth.

Dr. Carson was then gracious enough to meet those who attended and pose for pictures, as seen above, and as he had done at CPAC 2014. It is unclear how successful the "Draft Ben Carson" movements will be, but I'm sure we will continue to hear from this man, who, as a doctor, has saved a countless number of lives, as we appoach the 2016 election. 
 

Back to Blogging

I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaack!

First off, let me apologize for my absence. I learned of new professional responsiblities at the time of my last article, so to be the best I could be, I had to take a step back from reguarly blogging. A lot of fulfilling and promising events have happened in my career this year, which at times, has prevented me from catching my breath. I have now found that time to catch my breath!

I'm happy to be back and I look forward to speaking about and analyzing political happenings on a local and national level, as well as anything else you might find interesting. Looking forward to you reading and hearing from you all soon!
