Words I Never Thought I’d Say

Words I Never Thought I’d Say

I agree with Al Sharpton. Now, let’s not go nuts here. I think Al Sharpton is a divisive opportunist, who’ll use any situation in order to keep himself in the public eye. In my attempt to be as objective as possible, I believe he’s spent too much time stoking the [Read More]

Ten Years and a Couple Days Later

Ten Years and a Couple Days Later

I never saw the World Trade Center. The first time I came to New York, I “moved” here for a few months to intern with 77 WABC and The Sean Hannity Show. This was six years after the attacks of September 11th, 2001. On that historic day, I was sitting in English [Read More]
