Standing By or Standing Up to Bullies

My friend, Ralph Kolodny, professor emeritus at Boston University School of Social Work, commented on the brutality of the schoolyard in children’s lives. He said, “We tend to forget the pain that normally characterizes interaction among children. Oddly enough,” he added, “the work of the imaginative journalist or novelist often provides a more accurate picture.”

Hofstra University men’s basketball is back and in full bloom for another season.

In terms of team history, try this question.  What metropolitan men’s basketball team (including Manhattan, Rider, Seton Hall, Wagner) has the most wins in the last five years as well as the last 10 years, and has the most 20-win seasons since 2002. It’s Hofstra.

Representative Charlie Rangel was censored by Congress for some 12 ethic violations. Personally, I thought he got off easy. Rangel is a Democrat and yet most of the Demorcats in the House approved the censure. All the Republicans also approved except one, Peter King. King, longtime Nassau representative, pulls surprises. Generally, he votes the conservative Republican line and yet right now he is battling the rest of his party to get approval of the funds for the ground zero workers. Peter King has long fought for the Catholics of North Ireland and got the U.S. to invite the IRA leader Gerry Adams to the U.S. in spite of bitter British objections. King is a former boxer and fights hard for what he believes in like the treatment of Catholics in Northern Ireland. When much of the country was singing the praises of the late Michael Jackson, King reminded us of the many charges and trials of Jackson, recalling charges both proven and unproven. When President Bill Clinton was impeached, Peter King was the only Republican to support Clinton. He also has a close bi-partisan relationship with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Both parties agree that King has done a great job as head of Homeland Security for this area.
