Ganging Up in America

 

What five letter word do a killing spree in Long Island, the rape of a 14-year-old girl in a public school, and a suicide of an NFL player all have in common? If you guessed G-A-N-G-S you answered correctly. Last week, the life and fast times of Aaron Hernandez was a sports story that grabbed […]

The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo

 

Sunday evening, and it appears the “marcronie” — the non-left non-right political vehicle, formally named En Marche (Haul Ass), to support the presidential candidacy of Emmanuel Macron, won the most votes on Sunday, and the National Front won the second most votes. Under the rules, the two candidates of these tendencies will face off in […]

Last Week’s Overlooked Terrorist Bombing

 

As we have become desensitized to the continual assaults by terrorists on the free world, just “part and parcel of living in a big city” as London’s Mayor marked it down to, you probably glossed over some news from Germany last week that signals a shift in tactics by the terrorists.

A gorgeous crosscourt backhand that caught the other man by surprise, then a breathtaking inside out forehand down the line that downright shocked him: that was the match that was, except for a final service winner, as Roger Federer triumphed at the Miami Open, decisively beating his old friend and rival, Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-4.
