About Us
A penny for your thoughts indeed. Around here that would be a raise.

What makes a good blog? I think thematic consistency, a little exhibitionism, and honest writing. I can promise you the last one.

Most of my posts seem to be about music or politics. Some of them are funny. But all of them would love to hear a comment from you.

Oh-- and please welcome God to the APW team. We're thrilled and humbled to serve as His earthly vessel.

Location: NYC

I was born at a relatively young age. Growing up consumed the better part of my childhood. As a young man I chased a lot of girls. But they kept getting away. Then I got older and even slower, so I got married. I've lived in New York City almost since before I moved here. I summer in Manhattan, which is like New York City, but with more humidity.

Here's me, without baby, thinking big thoughts. (Actually, what I'm thinking is, "Hey, these aren't Pringles!") I think I look better with baby.

APW Gets On '08 Bandwagon Early
Sunday, September 03, 2006

It would be a shame if the Democrats so badly misread the current political zeitgeist that they continue down the path of anointing “Hillary ’08” with funds and resources (she's running virtually unopposed here in NY, but raising money like a mofo.) Hillary is, at best, Kerry in a skirt. Or, depending on the day, Gore in a sensible pants suit. She is a mistake waiting to be made.


If we know one thing about the Dems, it is that they are incompetent; so it stands to reason that the Big Democrat frontrunner for ’08 is probably a stupid choice.

There are, however, good choices. In 2008, after 8 years of Bush, the American public will have a rare and voracious appetite for someone who Sounds Like He Knows What He’s Talking About. Not someone who “talks tough.” Not even someone who hits the mark on “family values.” No, for a brief shining moment that we may never see again in our lifetimes, the American public will actually want to elect someone who seems to know what’s he’s talking about. Someone who, say, knows history, believes in science, doesn’t think dinosaurs walked the earth 6,000 years ago, reads a newspaper, can pronounce “nuclear.”

Someone like Joe Biden.

Check him out on this morning’s ABC This Week With George "Stubby" Stephanopoulos (you’ll have to sit through a commercial first). Because here at APW, we’re endorsing him right now for ’08.

Listen to what he says from about 8:05 through about 8:30 or so, then compare that to what we wrote here. For framing the question properly-- "Are we safer now than we were 5 years ago?"-- Biden is our guy.

Sounds like the moment is finally right for Adlai Stevenson.

Hi. Thanks so much for commenting on my blog. Love your blog. I too am hoping the Dems look past Hilary. She doesn't seem to be all the popular now does she?

Are we safer than before Biden voted for the Iraq War resolution? Are we safer than before Biden voted for the Patriot Act? Are consumers safer from credit card companies than before Biden helped push through the Bankruptcy Bill? And how does Plagiarizin' Joe defend these votes? He can't because they're indefensible. You are awfully quick to annoint a guy based on a single TV appearance.

The other thing you're wrong about here is that Americans NEVER vote for the smartest guy. They respond emotionally to the guy they like on TV. In 2000 and 2004 it was Bush. In 2008 it will be McCain unless the Dems can smear him into oblivion. They will continue to make their electoral choices based on emotion. Sorry but there you have it.
