Boston Herald Dazed and Confused
Take a look at that headline. Just look at it. Earlier this week, the editorial staff of the Boston Herald endorsed Chris Christie, the Governor of New Jersey, for President. Here’s my question for those folks up there: What the f’ are you thinking?
The Question I’d Ask The Candidates
55 years ago this month, in the final days of his time in office, President Eisenhower warned our country and our citizens about the increasing power of the military-industrial complex:
Sarah Palin Off The Deep End
Today’s disclaimer: I’m not a big fan of Sarah Palin. Glad I got that off my chest. I feel so much better now.
The Water Issue
So I think I have finally figured out what the major political issue of our time is that no one is talking about. It’s water. Now I know you are thinking “Ira has gone off the deep end (pun intended) on this one” but hear me out.
The Revenant Movie Review
Today I’m putting on my movie critic hat, just like the caption sez. Last night I saw the new Leonardo DiCaprio epic The Revenant. Have to admit, I didn’t even know what “revenant” meant, so I looked it up: “A person who returns as a spirit after death; ghost.” So now I know and if didn’t know, now you know…y’know?
The War On Christmas
Now that Christmas 2015 is over, I went to talk about the “War On Christmas.” Before we begin, let’s get over the irony of Ira Berkowitz, a (supposedly) nice Jewish boy from longisland, writing about the “war on Christmas.” Had your little chuckle? Good…let’s move on.
THE BABY WHISPERER
As many of my facebook friends saw and commented on, this past Saturday night I spent a couple of hours holding a little baby in my arms. Little Mia Rost, daughter of my wife’s business partner and her hubby. To put a couple of questions to rest:
Last week I was taking a walk around the reservoir in South Mountain Reservation. As winter has yet to arrive in the northeast, there were folks out dressed for a loverly spring day, which is exactly what it felt like.
The Cellenial Generation
I like to walk around the Orange Reservoir in South Mountain Reservation. They have done a really nice job of fixing the place up, which includes a great playground. There is often a good sized crowd of young parents with little kids.
Get My Name Right!
My name is Ira…I…r…a. Not Era or Eara or whatever. My last name is Berkowitz….B…e…r…k…o you get the picture. It’s not Ber-cow-itz like the animal. It’s not Berko-vitz, even though Siri thinks it is. Oh, and it’s Mr. not Miss or Mrs. or Ms, although I am fond of saying Mr. Berkowitz leaves in Florida.
