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.

After reading about Lindsay Lohan's recent arrest for stealing an expensive necklace (she thought the store had loaned it to her) and the fuss made over the dress she wore to her arraignment, a pun came to mind that cried out for a letter. Metro published my statutory suggestion on February 14, 2011.
Perhaps a new penal law category needs to be added for Lindsay Lohan's unique and high profile legal problems. I suggest the word "felohany" be applied to crimes committed by a perpetrator who "borrows" jewelry or clothes but still serves as a fashion role model when making court appearances. With the number of white minidresses sold following Lohan's recent arraignment, clothing designers will be anxious to outfit the next felohany celebrity.
