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.

The Daily News published this letter on October 27, 2009.

Despite the criticism, low poll numbers, and lack of support from President Obama, Governor David Paterson's continued fight for marriage equality is both laudable and vital. There is no greater civil rights cause at the moment, and the governor's unequivocal stance on gay nuptials brings a moral value to his leadership that is, unfortunately, missing from our President's.
