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.

"NYPD cops in riot gear seized control of Zuccotti Park after an officer's hand was badly gashed by a protester, setting off a ruckus inside the Occupy Wall Street outpost. The rookie cop was slashed with a star-shaped piece of glass taken from a protester's Captain America costume."

Metro published my bemused response on November 21, 2011.
It is disappointing that the most publicized conflict during the recent escalated Wall Street protests has been with police officers and not with the greed-obsessed financial powers that inspired Occupy.
