We should bribe our way to herd immunity. In New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio has the right idea. He is offering all sort of goodies to entice people to get vaccinated. There are plans in the works to give out free baseball tickets, free admission to soccer games, free admission to aquariums, and free metro cards. This is a great plan, and we should take it even further. We should role out similar incentives and freebies nationwide. And if you refuse to get vaccinated, we should limit your every move.

Do you care about the environment? Do you think global warming is real and that we must make a better effort to stop global warming? Well, if this is the case then you should not be flying at all.

I have a friend who is to the far right politically he thinks global warming is a crock. However, he rarely leaves Manhattan. Another close friend speaks eloquently about climate change and is politically to left but he travels all over the world for leisure. My right-wing friend is the far better environmentalist than my left- wing friend.

So of course I jumped at the opportunity to send The New York Mets $86 so a cardboard cutout of myself can sit in the stadium…But lately I am beginning to suspect that my cardboard cutout has it a lot better than me.

I do not know how my cardboard cutout is getting to the game but he has yet to pay $15 for parking.

Holed up at my Aunt’s house in New Jersey afraid to leave the house, I am reminded of an important discovery I made the last time New York was in a crisis and I was unemployed.

I was walking on 145 Street and there it was in the back of a Twin Donut Shop, Jesus’ Taco Stand. My first thought was “Boy, the guy really did love the poor.”

I tried to chat up the guy behind the counter about his boss but sadly, his English was weak. …


I have always been a coffee snob. I drink organic, fair trade, coffee handpicked by unionized members of a Matriarchal tribe located in a Brazilian rain forest. The beans are then shipped via a solar-powered plane to Brooklyn where they are hand-roasted by unionized members of a Matriarchal hipster tribe located in Bushwick.

My weekly ritual consisted of me driving my Tesla to the…
