This past weekend’s storm was just nasty and the recovery’s not been easy.

Remembering the legacy of Andrew Haswell Green, 19th Century urban planner who helped make the modern 5-borough city possible.

NYC’s ex-health commissioner, Dr. Thomas Frieden, now CDC’s director; love him or hate him for making us cut back on transfat and salt, he’s making big changes at CDC (and bringing NYC aspects with him).

Peeps in the ABA Journal – it’s that time of year again…

The passing of Merlin Olsen.  I remembered he was one of the cast on “Little House on the Prairie,” and he was also a football commentator, and then it was awhile when I learned that he was a pro football player – Hall of Famer?!- that’s quite a life.

The passing of Peter Graves.  He’ll be missed, but at least we’ll always have his oeuvre — yeah, he was Capt. Oveur in the Airplane! movies, but he’ll especially be remembered as Jim Phelps of Mission Impossible.
