Wishing the Boy Scouts of America a Happy 100th Birthday

Trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent is, of course, the Boy Scouts Code of Honor. Not a small thing to aspire to, for any number of reasons, not least of which every Boy Scout I knew could tie a great knot — a useful thing to know, especially for someone like me who has trouble knotting my shoelaces properly.

America’s Future Can Still Be Brighter Than Its Glorious Past


It is the morning of July 4, 2010, America’s 234th birthday. As a nation we’ve been around for a while although not nearly as long as many European and Asian countries. In 1987 Paul Kennedy, a Yale history professor, published his influential book, The Rise and Fall of Great Powers in which he saw parallels between America and the Roman and British empires in their twilight.

The Majesty of Lady Liberty

A cold and steady rain fell on the afternoon of Oct. 28, 1886, but it didn’t deter tens of thousands of excited spectators from huddling around the southern tip of Manhattan to see the great unveiling. At the given signal the veil began to slowly drop from the massive statue, 151 feet tall (not including the still-to-be-built pedestal) as “Lady Liberty” triumphantly overlooked the great New York Harbor.

 

Letter: Dear Floral Park Community

Friday, 02 July 2010 00:00

On Sunday, March 28, 2010, I received several phone calls at home asking me if it were true, that I was not going to be commissioner anymore. Puzzled, I asked about the origin of these rumors. Apparently, the day before, at the Reliance Engine Company’s 100th Anniversary Celebration, the village board told a number of people that I was not going to be re-appointed as commissioner on April 5. I am thankful for having so many concerned friends who cared enough to contact me. I only wish the village board had been professional enough to discuss this matter with me before letting it out to the public.

The Mystery of Shakespeare’s Unique Genius

The body of work is so luminous, so full of rapturous delight, so profound in taking the full measure of the human personality from its frivolous pretensions to its deeper resonances that one is tempted, indeed compelled, to ask if the hand of a single mortal could have sculpted such an enduring monument.
