Ed Koch saved NYC

Ed Koch: abrasive, funny, inspirational, Mayor of New York 1978-1989. Friday morning, he passed away. His passing can mean little to many of us in Camden; but to us former New Yorkers, especially those of us who worked to alleviate the financial crisis and the deterioration of life in New York, it is a time for us to remember and honor him. I hope you will share this remembrance with me.

Drawing with dynamite

On my cartoons you can see I go by my last name, Ariail. If you read the letters to the editor in the papers that carry my work you'd find I go by a few other names as well. But that's how it should be. Editorial pages and editorial cartoons are forums for expressing opinions and different ideas that on occasion clash with those of the reader. Editorials and cartoons can inform the reader on issues of the day and hopefully, provoke thought and discussion. That's their primary role.

Examining the NYT’s Chicago gun story

Several weeks ago, we ran a column by Chicago-based Clarence Page about the "virus" of Chicago violence in relation to the national gun control debate. He noted that there were 506 murders in Chicago in 2012 compared to only 418 in New York City. He didn't mention how many were committed by using a gun or other firearm.

Musial one of the greatest

I'm not much of a baseball fan, but I miss the days when I was -- a few decades ago, when the sport was indeed the national pastime and was the primary topic of conversation whenever boys of any age -- from 7 to 70 -- got together.

Where certainty ends....

How do we regard change in our lives? Do we view change as a good thing, simply a revision of the timeworn replaced by a positive update perhaps? Or do we see change as a painstaking event, an alteration of the ordinary? Do we know the timing of change or does it arrive as a complete surprise? Is change perpetual or as random as snow in Camden? There is change that skulks in at the most unexpected moments like an uninvited guest. And then there's the type of change we invite in and embrace with open arms. Some change ...

Can the GOP escape its bubble?

Here we go again. Whenever I try to offer a little helpful advice to Republican leaders, I have grown accustomed to hearing from some cranky conservative or two who blow me off, saying they're "not about to take advice from a liberal like you" -- or words to that effect.

No patsy now

WASHINGTON -- My inner Pollyanna was basking in blissfulness, rolling in the hay of righteous rhetoric, backstroking through the sunny sibilance of aspiration.

The Wheel of Time never really ends

Since last October, I've spent part of my time in another world. For about three months, I reread the massive fantasy series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. The final book, A Memory of Light, came out Jan. 8 and I was smart -- and loyal -- enough to pre-order it from our local bookstore in order to take advantage of a pretty great sale price.
