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.

I wrote this short letter to the Daily News based on an email I sent to my sister-in-law, Jodi, in which I commented on the passing of singer Amy Winehouse. It was published on July 26, 2011.


It is with great sadness that we witness a talent like Amy Winehouse lose her way and her life to the complexities of fame and constant attention. The grief is made more poignant when no one seems surprised.
