Life is full of unpleasant questions. Is Ricochet legal in New York? If so, for how long? I’m going to hit New York in mid-August, unless I’m fated. That’s where I make landfall, but I’m not sure it’s a part of my visit. I don’t know anyone there, for one thing. For another, it seems far too […]

The historic Manhattan cathedral that was gutted in a massive fire was one of four Christian Orthodox churches to go up in flames on Orthodox Easter Sunday — sparking fears of a coordinated attack on the religion. While FDNY officials said the blaze at the Serbian Orthodox Cathedral of St. Sava on West 25th Street […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. How Trump Turned Cruz into the Establishment Candidate

 

Donald Trump NYDonald Trump’s landslide victory in the New York GOP primary was a game-changer. It ended his Wisconsin slump and set the stage for an across-the-board sweep next Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Delaware, Connecticut, and Rhode Island.

Trump’s vote count exceeded his pre-primary polling average by nearly 10 percentage points. Perhaps most important, the win gave him 89 more delegates for the RNC July convention.

The Daily ShotTuesday, the Empire State went to the polls. New York is a big deal because it’s nominally the home state to three of the four leading presidential contenders. (Well, four of five if you include George Pataki.) Bernie Sanders is from Brooklyn (which explains the accent). Donald Trump is from Queens (which explains … a lot). And Hillary Clinton is a 100 percent authentic New Yorker who bought a mansion in Chappaqua to meet the residency requirements to run for Senate from a state she’d never lived in. (Not that we’re still bitter or anything…)

I almost forgot to vote today. Which is understandable, really, considering the fact that I’m an actress in New York and a Republican (which is about the closest one gets these days to feeling like a CIA mole behind the Iron Curtain), so in the nonstop Bernie/Hillary chatter amongst my liberal friends, neighbors and co-workers, […]

Tuesday afternoon Update – The polling place had Mrs. Tabby as registered, and handed me the correct ballot, so we were both able to vote. Apparently merely incompetence at executing the voter registration website. From Monday evening: More

Ted Cruz was ‘disinvited’ from speaking at an ELEMENTARY SCHOOL in Bronx, NY because 4th graders wrote a letter to their principal. This is on Redstate—the title, “The true meaning of “special little snowflake” and why it should matter to you as a citizen…” (I can’t link on my tablet!). More

A few days ago I watched The Walk, about Philippe Petit, who in August 1974 walked a high wire between the roofs of the World Trade Center towers. This was previously covered in the documentary Man on Wire (2008). This was a truly incredible feat, and the film manages to re-create the wonder, suspense and […]

Lent and nostalgia lured me to McD’s today for a Filet-o-Fish, the fast-food Friday alternative o’ my childhood. I hadn’t been there in a while and apparently, they’d remodeled in my absence. A few registers remain up front for people paying in cash but there are now 4 large kiosks out on the main floor […]

I sincerely apologize to the hard-working and steadfast citizens of New York, for the incompleteness of my remark. When I made that unfortunate reference to “New York values” you have to know what I was picturing in my mind: I was picturing a certain former senator of New York. A senator who belittles the women […]

If Chicago’s the Third City, New York is the first to be sure. So where does that leave Washington, D.C.? Without it, what would we be? But we’re not so concerned with prestige on this particular program as we are with what events, characters, considerations and compromises gave birth to these two superpowers of influence and, being based in Chicago as we are, naturally our own city is the measuring stick for comparing them both.

In hour one we are joined by Tom Lewis, professor emeritus, English at Skidmore College. He’s written extensively on the mid-Atlantic states and, for an aside, an absolutely superb history of our business of radio. In Washington: A History of Our National City, we learn of just what Washington the man had to overcome to give us a seat of government.

The beam of the car headlights framed flakes as they drifted, barely there. “Well, kids–it’s really snow,” said our dad. Snow. Snow. We stared out the front windshield and talked loudly. The faint precipitation didn’t rate the stir going on in our vehicle. Dad finally told us to settle down. But we had been waiting for months–since September, […]

Threats like the one sent to our two largest school districts yesterday should be handled by mayors in consultation with the police and the FBI. In other words, it’s a job for professionals, not school superintendents more equipped to crack down on peanuts and Star Wars t-shirts. More

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. The Roaring Success of Chick-fil-A in New York City

 

Remember when Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said that Chicago would not welcome a certain chicken sandwich restaurant? Or when Boston Mayor Tom Menino wrote a letter to that same company’s president saying that there was “no place for your company” in Boston? Good times. But in spite of liberal outrage over an executive expressing his views on marriage and sexuality, the hateful bigots at Chick-fil-A have opened a restaurant in Manhattan. And each day the line to enter winds down the sidewalk.

Just another success story the Mainstream Media won’t tell you.

I stayed away this year – – I don’t know why, just one of those years, I guess, where I couldn’t do it – – I couldn’t stop by the firehouse, couldn’t attend the memorial service, and couldn’t bring myself to think about the day. Some anniversaries are like that. Having successfully distracted myself and […]
