Letters and Opinions
These are opinion pieces that I have had published in a variety of newspapers and magazines. I have been writing letters-to-the-editor since 2006, and have had over 150 published since then. I also play guitar and sing in a musical revue called The Loser's Lounge. With a cast of guest singers, we perform tributes to great songwriters and bands. The show is in its 20th year, and we perform at Joe's Pub - The Public Theater in New York City.

Rick Santorum accused President Obama of holding a "phony theology" that places the environment over humans. Somehow, it is insincere to the point of pretension to believe that our planet needs to be protected. Santorum may not intend to pillage the Earth of its bounty, but I am dismayed that he chooses to characterize the beliefs of those who do care about the planet and the possible negative effects human activity has upon it as phony.

God forgives Church Lady who stole a million dollars. How could I not write a letter about that? How could the Daily News not publish it on February 5, 2012?
I'm not surprised that Anita "The Church Lady" Collins is "at peace with God" following the discovery of her theft of over $1 million from the Archdiocese of New York. At this point, her relationship with her God is the only thing left she can manipulate.
Much has been made of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's statement that he is not "concerned about the very poor," but I saw something else in his quote. Metro published my observation on February 3, 2012.
