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 22th year, and we perform at Joe's Pub - The Public Theater and Lincoln Center in New York City.

Newsday published this letter on September 12, 2009: President Obama should actually thank South Carolina Rep. Joe "You lie!" Wilson for his buffoonish behavior during the president's health care speech. It was a perfect example of the level of intelligent debate being offered by the bill's opponents. Perhaps Wilson will graduate to spitballs next time.
