Why I support Paul Tonko for re-election to NY-20 (and so should you!!)

In twelve years of blogging, I’ve only endorsed one local political race. That was in 2015, when Dan McCoy ran against Dan Egan for Albany County Executive, and I still remembered when Egan – who at the time was President of the Albany City School Board – shut down my high school, Harriet Gibbons High…

The spooky story of “Trust Your Buddy…”

Last night, I was interviewed by a fellow WHCL on-air personality and current Hamilton student Kate Miller (no relation). Her show, “Hamilton Haunts,” airs on Wednesday nights at 1pm on WHCL, and I encourage you to tune in.

I cannot believe I’m actually blogging about this. But it’s too funny to pass up. So, in Yelm, Washington, somewhere near Olympia and an hour’s drive south of Seattle, a man was arrested after a fight in a Walmart parking lot.

Did Donald Trump say “good” or “go ahead”?

Let’s get a few things straight. I do not support Donald Trump for President. I believe that he and his cabal of toadies, sycophants and wannabes have destroyed America. And I know that saying this out loud has cost me connections with family members and longtime friends. You know what? The soul of this country…

So yeah, in the past few days there have been incidents involving various political people who, for some unknown reason, have a desire to, shall we say, give themselves a little self-pleasure.

There’s no Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown…

I can remember a time when there were Peanuts TV specials that aired in prime time. They were special events. They were must-see television, especially for kids like me.
