How Far Down the Rathole Will New York Go?

Boy oh boy, Governor Cuomo must be wetting his pants over being primaried on his left by Cynthia Nixon. In his continued lurch leftward to stave off this challenge, last week Cuomo issued an executive order to allow parolees the right to vote in New York. That is right. Now all 55,000 parolees, which include murderers and rapists, will be able vote. The Legislature wouldn’t pass this, so ...

World at a Crossroads

I was born three and a half years after Nazism and Fascism were defeated in Europe in April of 1945. Being victorious in World War II was no small feat and our country rejoiced during the 1950s by embedding the decade with unbridled optimism about the future. After all, the Allies had confronted and defeated what, until recently, would have been considered an unimaginable evil. Additionally, in ...

Time to Crank It Up!

It’s easy to get upset these days for any number of reasons. Still, hope springs eternal (even when we’ve given up hope of seeing spring). We live in a time of such grace and deference toward each other that a wimpy word like snowflake is the toughest insult that bullies can muster.  

We’ve all heard of the Bully Pulpit. That’s when somebody uses his leverage ...

Time to Take Action on Low Voter Turnout

April 26, 2018

Low voter turnout, particularly among young people, has reached crisis proportions—what will we do about it?

In terms of the percentage of people voting, the United States ranks near the bottom among developed countries in the world; New York ranks 44th among the 50 states and the District of Columbia. Only 41 out of approximately 500 18-year-olds in Yorktown voted in the 2017 election.

Closet Case

Not too long ago, if you said you had a room the size of a closet, it meant the space was probably pretty darn small. These days, however, it’s not uncommon to have a closet the size of a living room, with more sliding drawers, revolving racks and custom shoe trees than Barney’s or Bloomies or Kim Kardashian. So nowadays, if you tell someone you have a room the size of a closet, the ...

Where's Gilbert's Sense of Urgency

April 26, 2018

Supervisor Ilan Gilbert’s non-confrontational approach and slow methodic consideration of every issue is more suited for the courtroom than town hall. Supervisor Gilbert needs to take off his former judicial robe and put on a pair of political gloves and enter the rough and tumble arena of Yorktown politics.

Yorktown voters wanted change and not business as usual. Supervisor ...
