Monica Perkowski: Embracing Dialogue as a Path Forward

September 25, 2016

One of the focuses of my campaign is expanding the lines of communication between residents and the township council. To me, this means council members working with residents to solicit ideas and communicating with residents regularly to let them know why one might support, oppose, or have further questions about a given issue. A recent issue that fits this criteria is the potential Senior ...

Letting the Jean-ie Out of the Bottle

Sometime between the end of last spring and the beginning of this fall, someone snuck into my closet and shrunk all my jeans.  I tried to convince my husband that we had a problem with the dryer, but since all of his jeans still fit, it was a hard sell.  Without thinking it through, he scoffed and suggested that maybe it wasn't the jeans – maybe it was ...

‘Bathing in Moonlight’ Recalls 1950s Cuba

PRINCETON, NJ – Although this  play by Nilo Cruz is set in 2015, reflecting both Cuba and Miami, the theme is closer to struggles at least 30 years earlier. 

A priest who falls in love would more likely become an Episcopalian or even a Unitarian. So this dichotomy makes the whole premise less than believable. It’s really “The Thornbirds” revisited.
