The late, great Joe Frazier

A note about the late boxing champ, Joe Frazier…For those who don’t think we have made strives toward racial harmony let me speak as someone who grew up during the Frazier/Ali era. In short, we have made major strives and in no small part Joe Frazier contributed mightily toward that goal. He represented a hard working black man in a country deeply divided. Our thanks go out to you,courtesy: boxingmemories.com Champ.

Abraham Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln

Thank you Mr. Lincoln. You saved the union and now we live in the most perfect country in the world.

On November 6, 1860, Abraham Lincoln was elected president. Exactly one year later, Jefferson Davis of Mississippi was chosen to lead the newly formed Confederate States of America as its president. Find out more about these two political leaders and the role they played during the American Civil War here: http://bit.ly/ubXVPX

Support Martinez, not Republicans

Military Veterans

I know you probably want to take me to task for asking you to vote on DANCING WITH THE STARS. I admit that I was suckered in by my wife, but I keep watching because of J.R. Martinez.

Martinez is a vet who was burned over 40% of his body and had massive facial injuries. Yet, there he is, dancing for all to see. Not only does he portray the confidence of Cary Grant, but the man is doing his best Astaire.

Log on to abc.com and vote for Martinez. He gave a lot. Give him a minute of your time.

Thanks for reading our blog at https://nynewsman.wordpress.com/

P.S.  I would like to thank the Republicans for giving me so many concrete reasons not to vote for any of you. Presidents Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, Eisenhower, and Lincoln would be appalled by your actions. Way to go!!!!

Celebrating Genius – Part 2


The dream is not senseless, not absurd, does not presuppose that a part of our store of ideas is dormant while another part begins to awaken. It is a psychic phenomenon of full value, and indeed the fulfilment of a wish.

Celebrating Genius

Celebrating Genius
“The most heavenly gifts seem to be showered on certain human beings. Sometimes supernaturally, marvelously, they all congregate in one individual. . . . This was seen and acknowledged by all men in the case of Leonardo da Vinci, who had. . . an indescribable grace in every effortless act and deed. His talent was so rare that he mastered any subject to which he turned his attention. . . . He might have been a scientist if he had not been so versatile.” Giorgio Vasari
