Did you ever have that experience where you notice something and then everything you read seems to confirm that little nugget you’ve noticed? So it is with me this week. I’ve been writing and noticing the ongoing emasculation of men in our culture and, today, I open the NY Times Thursday Styles section to see […]

It’s not an obsession of mine (daydreaming about being really really rich) but I used to walk around the Frick Museum on Fifth Avenue — once the private home of Henry Clay Frick — trying to imagine what it must have been like to call this mansion home. That’s why I’ve been intrigued in the […]

First off, it’s yet another rant from a woman about how no one gave her a subway seat when she was pregnant. Fair enough, even though it seems to me […]

Today, there are two “water-cooler” stories in the NY Times, and because the paper does not yet charge for content, I’ll bring them to you — free!! BERNARD KERIK — Remember him? Former police commissioner of New York, nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security? You might be wondering what he’s up to these days, after […]
