COVID 19 was a Bit Player for a Day this Past Friday as More Gun Violence Occurred

Will Our New Mayor, Eric Adams, actually be able to Curb Gun Violence?

And the Gun Violence Continues

The sad, emotional and tough to take incident that took place here in Harlem, Manhattan, NYC this past Friday, was the shooting of two police officers. The result was severe injury to one officer, and the passing of the other, only 22 years of age.

Action or Inaction?

It is hard to tell if politicians are actually going to do anything regarding the issues they ran on. As the people who, in theory, vote in these individuals, it is our job to keep them accountable. Any progress in getting them to actually take action steps is correlated with our strength in keeping them to their word.

The Blueprint for Success

Every marketer knows that people primarily take action based on pain and fear, rather than love and the desire to make a difference. This is especially true of our public servants. By the very title of what they do, are supposed to serve us. Our supposed power is in our vote. This is important, but sometimes even more effective is the level to which protesting, and shaming is executed.

Day 88: Remeber When Social Distancing Was One of Our Biggest Problems?

No One To Stop It

Just when we though social distancing (see image) was going to be one of our biggest challenges, everything has been turned upside down. At this point none of us here in NYC understands what is happening including our elected city officials. Where is the leadership locally and nationally? We hear last night that a store in midtown we went to recently has been destroyed and looted. And there was one there to stop it.


How is it possible for all this chaos to happen with no protection for us regular citizens? Why the line of officers instilling fear in the wrong group? It’s the other group guys, not those doing peaceful protest which when last we checked is a right in this country. If you’re going to dress up in that scary outfit and hold menacing shields, at least do it for those who deserve it, not Americans trying to get across an important message.


We love our beautiful city but one thing happens after another to tarnish our cultural mecca. Why now? Why this unprecedented activity? And why is there no one to punish those doing it?
