    Contrary to advice, I drove into New York City the evening of Sunday, Dec. 26. I couldn’t help it. We had seven tickets to "Phantom of the Opera" at the Majestic Theater and they weren’t cheap. Given the prediction of snow, we decided to head into the city early so as to have...

    I don’t always see eye-to-eye with Edgar Allen Beem, but two of his recent articles have clearly addressed what has been on my mind. “Enough with whining about taxes” and “The embarrassment in the Blaine House” have been home runs. Why are people bowing down t...

  • Letter: PSO performance disappoints

    Your article on composer Elliot Schwartz was very informative, but I noticed you did not critique “Diamond Jubilee.” I will. It was hard to tell which was worse – the slide show or the “music.” It was supposed to be music, wasn’t it? Isn’t music...
