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.

My Photo
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.

Not Such a Baby
Tuesday, January 30, 2007
Remember back when we launched APW, and we selected a photo of ourselves (by which we mean, me) "with baby"? Well, not such a baby anymore... here she is with her cousin this past weekend.

I Don't Like Hillary Clinton
Thursday, January 18, 2007

Here at APW, we've already gone out on a limb and endorsed Senator Joe Biden for president in 2008. We like Barak Obama OK, and are prepared to consider an endorsement for him, say, circa 2016. But we have a problem with Hillary Clinton.

Yesterday she introduced a senate bill to cap the number of troops the US is legally allowed to deploy in Iraq. This strikes us as quintessential HIllary-- exquisitely crafted boneheadedness. Politically savvy (she'll be able to point to it as a stake-in-the-ground definition of her position on Iraq, in the hope that it will somehow overshadow her previous hawkishness.) But totally empty calories, no substance (it is a "symbolic" gesture, a bill no one thinks will pass; and what if it DID pass, become law, and then a week later Iran invades Iraq and everyone agrees we need another 100,000 troops in Iraq pronto, but now it is illegal to send them?)

Kerry was positioned by Bush as a flip flopper. I suspect Hillary won't have that problem, because you have to actually HAVE a position on something in order to change positions. She's my senator, I voted for her twice, and I'll be damned if I can tell you anything she's done for us in New York as senator, or any significant positon she has on any issue. I DO know she put on a Yankee hat and played Billy Joel's "Captain Jack" when she got into the senate race the first time around, both transparent, calculated, clumsily executed "symbolic" gestures. ("Captain Jack," a song about a drug dealer, was probably the first time you heard the word "masturbate" sung on the radio.)

All my pundit pals (and yes, it is sad that I have pundit pals) think that HIllary is going to waltz to the Democratic nomination. I tend to disagree. I think that on a podium next to Biden, Obama, Richardson, even John "Cubby" Edwards, she's going to play very poorly, and suddenly half of America is going to remember why they hate her, and the other half is going to remember why they don't want her representing their side in a year their side ought to be able to win.


By the way, if you're wondering why I voted for her for senator, consider the alternatives. It isn't as if I would have voted for this guy, or this one.
