Back in Jersey, where I grew up, March 1 was the start of spring sports. I ran track. Actually, for the most part, I ran away from the running part and threw things, like a shot put and discus. Anyway, every March 1 we would be outside for track practice. In shorts. And a T-shirt. […]
Help me with something. If you argue people should get an ID to show it when they vote, you are an evil-doer trying to disenfranchise them. Yet … Everyone has to sign up for Obamacare or face a fine. There are no accusations of evil-doing linked to being forced to sign up for Obamacare. No […]
Today is Sunday, which means tomorrow is Monday, which is President’s Day. Enjoy the day off, those of you who have the day off. Some of us have to work on President’s Day. All of us with jobs will be at work Tuesday, which brings me to this: Movie lines that can be applied to […]

My two favorite movies are “Casablanca” and “It’s A Wonderful Life.” “Casablanca” is loaded with great dialogue, like this exchange between Humphrey Bogart’s character and Peter Lorre’s … Lorre: “You despise me, don’t you?” Bogie: “If I gave you any thought, I probably would.” Verbal exchanges like that are why it shares my top spot.
