Standing at the entrance of the Christopher Street PATH station our bike trip had come to a standstill. I doubted I had the upper body strength to carry my Russian tanker of a mountain bike and Savanna’s snazzy Aqua blue Schwinn down those killer stairs. I had two choices: turn back now and send my daughter the message it’s okay to give up, or break my neck trying.
I was ready to offer Savannah ice cream in exchange for nixing the idea of biking in Hoboken when I heard a voice from behind. “Can I get this for ‘ya?” it said.
F. Scott Fitzgerald was right when he said the “rich are different than you and me.” Kerry Kennedy’s appearance in Westchester County Court was a made for TV moment. Thank you for reminding viewers your father was once the Attorney General.

When I read the Op-Ed I felt sick to my stomach, and not because I think the famous writer/director is a pedophile, and for the fact of the matter, nor did the experts at the Yale-New Haven Hospital who investigated the case 21 years ago and found the claims unsubstantiated.

I recently found out that U.S. ranked a shameful 16th out of 23 countries in literacy proficiency. Topping the list is Japan, Netherlands and Finland.
It begs the question: is it the teaching and testing methods in those countries or that more mothers are on board with screaming every morning: “Put your coat on. We’re going to be late for school!”
