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 160 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 24th year, and we perform at Joe's Pub - The Public Theater and Lincoln Center in New York City.

amNY published this letter on my birthday, December 11, 2008:
It is preposterous to suggest, as state Senate leader Malcolm Smith has, that the economy must be addressed before legislation on gay marriage rights. In fact, legalizing same-sex marriage in New York would be a fiscally wise decision. Revenue generated by gay weddings can only help the state's economy. So between a guaranteed increase in commerce as well as a more equitable state civil rights platform, New York cannot afford to put off this issue.
