One year ago today, I received a message that would have pretty huge impact on my life and my little corner of the world. It turns out it is no longer the stork who brings you your new siblings, it's Facebook. More please!
Governor Christie is up for reëlection next month. He does not view all Americans as worthy of equal treatment under the law. Is it because they pay fewer taxes? Because they are different than him? Because he views them as less than human? Or is it just cynical politics? Who cares. That kind of behavior should be an automatic disqualifier for holding office as a servant of the public. More please!
Earlier this year, writer/actress extraodinaire Jessica Almasy asked if I wanted to write (with her) and perform (on my own) a 10+ hour long theatrical monologue. A filibuster. I responded with the only logical answer, my God of course I do let's start right now! And so we begin... More please!
I had some train trouble today. Riding on the Q from Brooklyn into Manhattan, the train stopped suddenly in the middle of the tunnel. Not unusual. So not unusual you might just call it 'usual'. More please!

From Shakespeare to dentists, from a steadily diversifying US Congress to you, the person reading this summary right now, here is the richly deserving yet wholly incomplete list of who and what is receiving my gratitude this year. More please!
Mitt Romney smiles like a man being scolded by his neighbor for letting his dog poop across the property line, and Paul Ryan's smile is somewhere between patient hernia sufferer and petulant beer pong champion. What are they holding in behind those clenched jaws and tight lips? More please!
As you go to your polling place and stare at the choice before you, picture the thing you love most in this world. And know in your heart, that at some point, somewhere, Mitt Romney has taken a firm stand against you and the thing you love. More please!
As part of the ongoing case that Congressman Paul Ryan is not, in fact, a highly principled fiscal and social arch-conservative but is in reality a highly ambitious and hard working tool driven by a deep need to be cool in the minds of the Republican cool kids he grew up with, I hereby present the following evidence: (1) Paul Ryan posed, on purpose, for this photo shoot. Keep in mind this is while he is pursuing a campaign to be elected Vice President of the United States of America. Paul More please!
