I have never followed an intense exercise routine.
I am a big believer in ‘all things in moderation’ — in both food and physical activity.
But I have recently been inspired to follow a new upper-body strength routine that I think could catch on around the globe:
Donald Trump Pinata Challenge
1. Buy pinata in likeness of annoyingly-ignorant businessman and Republican presidential candidate.
2. Get really big stick.
3. Beat the crap out of that thang, honing upper body strength while reducing frustrations with Trump and flawed political process.
4. Repeat 2-3 times each week.
Note: if you put candy in pinata per tradition, this could reduce positive outcomes of routine.

Everyone should have an opportunity to read the closing paragraph of the Supreme Court ruling–authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy–that has changed our country for the better.

If you’ve ever had the good fortune to travel to Ireland, you might assume (incorrectly) that people who live amongst such rustic countryside and rich history wouldn’t be very forward-thinking.
Turns out they have quite a few things to teach us back here in the USA.
Congratulations, Emerald Isle, on your historic approval of same-sex marriage — the first country to do so by a national vote.

I love a newspaper with a sense of humor.
Of course, in this case, The Washington Post borrowed the funny from Vice President Joe Biden.
As is his habit, Joe had dozens of his trademark gems for the new members of the 114th Congress and their family during Tuesday’s swearing-in ceremonies. So the Post put together a little generator so we all can enjoy a compliment from the vice president.
You can always depend on Uncle Joe. And I don’t know about you, but today…
I can use the smile.

I live across from a police precinct in Manhattan.
Could there be a safer location?
I’ve always felt safe here. Police are on the street around the clock….and within reach at a moment’s notice.
But since the two grand jury decisions not to indict police officers in incidents in both New York City and Ferguson, it feels somewhat less so. Granted, demonstrations in Manhattan have been organized and peaceful to date — and none have ventured down my side street — but you sense that police are in a heightened state of alert.
Case in point, the station across from my building has their flood lights on every night, so our street is always daylight-bright. When my dog and I go out for a walk at 7pm or midnight — or 3am if necessary — it looks like the middle of the afternoon.
So in a sense, I guess it’s even safer now. And probably keeping the people on the front of the building awake at night.
