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.

Stay Classy

I was inspired to play off of some some recent Donald Trump tweets where he throws out an insult but then insists he would not say such a thing. The Daily News published an edited version of my letter on February 8, 2016. Here's the original version:

"I was going to say that Donald Trump is a narcissistic bigot interested only in seeing his name emblazoned on the White House, but I won't say it. I won't say it. But it's true. I'd like to use foul language and say he's a f-ing, pompous windbag whose cynicism for the intelligence of Americans is only eclipsed by his vanity, but I won't. No, it's true, but I just won't say that. And by not saying that, I have thankfully preserved my understated and statesmanlike demeanor."
