No matter the race, don’t deface

Elections can bring people to do really dumb things. When I was walking to a debate for a Council race in Borough Park, I saw Yoni Hikind posters spray-painted. One part of the posters not spray painted on was the rabbi sitting next to Hikind. Later, returning from the debate I saw Kalman Yeger posters either drained by the rain that day or also put down by someone. (Not sure which it was.) Comment

Best of times, worst of times for the media

Spin Cycle: It is a grand understatement to say media in American is undergoing a seismic shift these past few years. We all know print is suffering and could be threatened with extinction in the not-too-distant future (although I am still a firm believer that print will exist in some media outlets for many more decades). Radio has become a dinosaur. Even cable television is getting socked by all the cord-cutters who would rather stream than stick to prime-time viewing. Comment
