YORKTOWN, N.Y. - The World War II Four Chaplains Memorial Ceremony was held Sunday, Feb. 7, at the Yorktown American Legion Post 1009. In February 1943, four U.S. Army Chaplains on board a torpedoed and sinking troopship in the North Atlantic performed the ultimate sacrifice helping their fellow soldiers. One was a Rabbi, one a Dutch Reformed minister, the third a Lutheran minister, and the last was a Catholic priest. Each served their country, their religious beliefs, and their fellow soldiers on that fateful night. The survivors of the attack that night told of the bravery and inspiration these four Chaplains exhibited that night.

The American Legion welcomed four prominent local clergy members to concelebrate this inspiring story of faith and bravery: Mother Claire Woodley of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church; Rabbi Robert Weiner of Temple Beth Am; Rev. Dan O’Brien of Calvary Bible Church; and Fr. Robert Quarato of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

God Is Just! Schneiderman Is Out!

Whenever you doubt that God is just, remember last Monday. That is the day New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman resigned.

As you know, I have had him in my sights for a long time. He has squandered our tax dollars with more than 100 lawsuits against the Trump administration. Plus, his lawsuits against Big Oil and trying to nullify our double jeopardy laws. Most will go nowhere as ...

A Scientific Look at Decision-Making

Seven years ago, when I first began sharing my thoughts with you, I posed the question: What are the neurological mechanics of decision-making? I was referring not only to decisions about our actions, but also to the method by which we form our beliefs and preferences, political and otherwise. What inspired that inquiry, at that time, was my observation that our nation was increasingly polarized ...

Bias in Media, in Me, in You

While listening to an interview with a voter on my car radio, I thought I had excess ear wax that obstructed my hearing. The voter (whose name is Bruce) said this about one of the qualifications that a Senate or House candidate must have to earn his vote: “I don’t want anyone with ideas. We have enough of those already.”

I’m a journalist and have been one my entire ...

Cross My Legs and Hope to Die

One morning, I had a big cup of coffee as I usually do, and then I got in the car and drove 40 minutes to a clothing store I had been curious to check out. I don’t normally drive 40 minutes to go shopping, but since I am a stay-at-home mom and everyone knows we stay-at-home moms just spend our time shopping and eating bonbons, I figured, “What the hey.”

Having had the ...

Don’t Mix Politics with Business

May 17, 2018

When every year is an election year, it’s hard to avoid “talking” politics—but business leaders need to try.

The problem is that talking politics changes relationships. You quickly go from business owner or salesperson to Democrat, Republican, etc.

Putting a political sign in front of your business is a clear sign (literally) of your views. Not only do you tell your ...
