(Genesis 37-40) Even though we know that every word of every sentence is significant, its easy to overlook some …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — January 5, 2020 — The explosion of public expressions of bigotry is breathtaking. We had thought that, as individuals and as a society, we had moved past the acceptance of awful and indefensible behaviors. The evidence is otherwise. Laws had been passed. It wasn’t legal to discriminate. Penalties had been enhanced. Do wrong and you paid …

End-of-year Vetoes Produce Strange Results, Bedfellows and Laws. WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — December 30, 2019 — For example, in January 1995, Gov. George Pataki’s first official legislative act was to veto a bill sponsored by Sen. George Pataki.

One of the most refreshing aspects of Resolution 296—which acknowledges the Armenian Genocide, and which the House recently voted overwhelmingly for—is that it also recognizes those other peoples who experienced a genocide under the Ottoman Turks.  The opening sentence of Resolution 296 acknowledges “the campaign of genocide against Armenians, Greeks, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Syriacs, Arameans, Maronites, and other Christians.” And that …
