In God We Trust

Posted on 18 November 2009

As the economic situation in America worsens and record unemployment continues, one has to wonder if God is testing us.  The stock market shows signs of recovery and the financial markets are also recovering thanks to the American taxpayer.  You would think it time that the recipients of this largesse pony up by providing more […]

Ch-ch-changes in Career Strategies

Posted on 17 November 2009

Has it crossed your mind to wonder why contemporary legends David Bowie and Madonna are still holding their own quite nicely against their much younger, hipper musical counterparts?  Hint: both the Thin White Duke and the Material Girl are savvy business people as well as artists.  To retain their competitive edge in an industry whose […]

The Love of Animals

Posted on 16 November 2009

As I was watching the movie Marley and Me, starring Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson, I was reminded once again how essential animal companionship is in our lives. This film was based upon a true and wonderful story of two newlyweds, Jenny and John Grogan, just starting out on their lives together.  Not yet ready […]

On the Horns of a Dilemma

Posted on 14 November 2009

Friday the 13th arrived, living up to its reputation.  Yesterday, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the man proudly calling himself the mastermind behind 9/11 will be tried not in a military trial, but in a civilian federal court in downtown Manhattan (New York City, for those of you not from the Big Apple).  […]

The Curious Case of Christopher Columbus: A Study in Historical Revisionism

Posted on 13 November 2009

Attorneys can be disbarred.  Saints can be de-canonized (just ask St. Christopher, the guy who used to protect us as we took our lives into our hands on the Jersey highways).  So what do you call it when the man credited with discovering America is no longer honored, as he was in the recent past, […]

My Cup Runneth Over — Help!!!

Posted on 12 November 2009

Multitudinous shopping malls, health spas and nail salons, tattoo parlors, universities, medical institutions, restaurants both fancy and casual, great beaches, well-manicured parks, Corporate America, and endless highways clogged with traffic … or a quiet rural setting with none of the above.  Which would you choose?  If you’ve chosen to reside in the Great Garden State, […]

Justice

Posted on 11 November 2009

Often, it seems that there is no justice in our world. Frauds are perpetrated on an unsuspecting public. Unscrupulous businesspeople reap ill-gotten financial rewards with impunity. Cheating by students is tacitly approved by parents and even some educators as a means to an end.   In such a climate, it takes a wise individual to […]

One Minute of Silence

Posted on 10 November 2009

  At precisely 11 o’clock on November 11, 1918, the guns of World War I fell silent.  With the signing of the Armistice between Germany and the Allied countries, the first global conflict officially ended.  Armistice Day was thus created to commemorate the men and women who served their country during World War I.  On […]

Lip Service

Posted on 09 November 2009

The longer that we remain in the same place of employment, the deeper we sink into that comfort zone that can, in the end, be anything but comfortable.  If the old phrase “Familiarity breeds contempt” sounds familiar, consider how that might translate into the workforce.   Your employer might share off-color jokes that make you squirm, delve […]

A Simple Long-Term Care Solution

Posted on 08 November 2009

In the eternal quest for longevity of life, new problems arise.  While scholars and theologians still ponder when life begins, others are planning how life will end.  The question, “when I grow old and feeble, who is going to care for me” has to be addressed. Like national health insurance, not everyone in our country […]
