1692, Salem Massachusetts

In 1692, the town of Salem, Massachusetts was overwhelmed from one of the most infamous cases of mass hysteria in recorded history. Pinpointing the exact cause, leading to such a bewildering effect, is a task that historians still debate. A family feud, a beggar woman, pirates, and an unsanctioned government, seem to have set the stage, in what would become an out of control, game of death. The first domino fell when four young girls became violently ill. Rather than investigating the nature of the outbreak, or questioning a possible ruse (one of the sick girls was a part of the family, feuding with the family of one of the accused), instead they would buy into The Boogeyman Theory, which led to the arrest of…

Tonight,  Jews and Muslims united to protest Bannon
at a NY public library near  Bryant Park chanting “Say it loud, say
it clear, Nazi’s are not welcome here!”

Trump Effect: Jewish and Muslim Organizations Form New Alliance

Less than a week after an election that left many minority and religious groups in the United States feeling disenfranchised, two important organizations – one Jewish and the other Muslim – announced an unusual alliance on Monday.

The American Jewish Committee and the Islamic Society of North America have teamed up to form a new national group of leading Jewish and Muslim Americans: The Muslim-Jewish Advisory Council.

Thank You To The Cast Of Hamilton For Standing Up To VP-Elect Michael Pence

Thoughts on the cast of Hamilton from Gronda Morin

Gronda Morin

Anyone who believes that we are living in normal times, is denying the reality that the majority of Americans voted for the democrat Hillary Clinton to become Madam President. Yes, she will win the popular vote by about 2 million ballots. This is more than the total combined votes garnered by any of the four other former candidates who won the popular vote but lost the electoral college vote.

Thank you, Mr. Trump, as tickets to this play which are sold out for months in advance are almost impossible to come by.
