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 Thing To Fear: Beer Itself




This letter came to me while riding the subway, and the Daily News printed it on May 5, 2014. amNY also printed the letter on May 8, but for some reason edited out the last six words. I think the DN came up with a pretty clever title.
