I started this blog to publish ideas and to give voice to some of my observations regarding life in twenty first century America. Born in the Bronx in 1950, I have witnessed a great deal of progress and regress as we struggle to live the Great American Dream.
I have been disillusioned by politics and politicians and see little in the way of statesmanship or leadership coming out of Washington. Then there is the Catholic Church. I continue to be a practicing Catholic but find it difficult to respect our Church leadership. I don’t want to be one who just trashes all institutions but we are having issues with many of the institutions that we previously respected.
I am also writing a book about my experiences growing up in the Bronx and I will publish passages from My Back Pages: A Real Bronx Tale, from time to time.
