The Nassar Chronicles
February 20, 2018 | 08:46 PM
Jerry ... Love the catapult idea for Nassar in the Olympics but here's a better one ! After he gets his "25 to Life"¯ sentence, send him to an all-women's prison and follow his daily trials and tribulations on a new reality TV show called "The Nassar Chronicles"¯. A guaranteed cable TV or Netflix ratings winner, due to very limited censorship. As for digital media "streaming"¯, the viral sharing possibilities are endless since there's no censorship. This is what we in advertising might call a "Big Idea"¯.

Thank you for the lovely article, Nicole. One small correction. US beekeepers have lost 1/3 or more of their colonies every year for the past 10 years. I have been more fortunate. My losses have averaged 7% over that same period. That is, until last year when I lost over half of my colonies. Thanks again for this important reporting.

Thank you Kitty Merrill for such a lovely article on edie Windsor. I happen to be in the cleaners this morning and caught the picture of Edie in the lower left corner of the 09/20/17 issue. It was a beautiful tribute and Andrew Cuomo's comments were beautiful. Her legacy continues, on the east End and around the world. It fills my heart!

Yet you still defend that monster Woody Allen. Of course that's too be expected from someone who exploits their own family for clicks under the guise of "journalism"
February 16, 2018 | 05:20 PM
Yeah my mother taught me not to talk to strangers and all that. But I was already being sexually assaulted in my very own home by my father. Your children are more likely to be sexually assaulted, molested by somebody they Trust and love. I have had friends who were molested by grandfather's by Brothers uncles and yes Neighbors. And I also have known a few men who were molested by your aunt and the teenage girl babysitter. And a child as well as he not to say anything when it's somebody that they Trust. I believed my father wouldn't do anything that would hurt me. It never occurred to me I didn't know Father's did things like that. Describing person as a boogie man about some movie that's out I'm trying to tell you about the actual reality of life it's not a boogie man it's your father it's your uncle grandfather that's who it is not a boogie man not a monster its your father. You mothers out there you need to be paying attention to you daughter's behavior when they're young looking for signs of that. It is a victim of it myself there are many signs changes in Behavior. Look for pay attention moms. Don't be so sure the man you married is trustworthy Not only was my family in denial but it seems as if the whole world is in denial. Sorry about that i got a little carried away. As you can see I'm still not over it. It's too serious not to be looking for right there in your own house please pay attention to your children especially your daughters please for their sakes. There's No Going Back can't be undone
I'm Depressed Too

Jerry ! Clearly the best and funniest column you've ever written, and going to try to keep my commentary short. First, I love that "The beautiful Judy Licht"¯ is always rooting for Jews. It's so New York and I do the same thing when my beloved son-in-law, Scott, is pitching for a major automotive agency contract. Second and like you, the only reason I might watch figure skating in the Olympics is for the "skimpy"¯ outfits on the girls (and screw you #MeToo). Third, where's the action? Olympic hockey can get a bit rough (maybe), but nothing like NFL Football. Slalom, snowboarding, and skating .. fuhgeddaboudt it. And don't forget "curling"¯. Like pushing your mother-in-law out the door while dusting her path along the way. How about full-contact baseball (since that's all we've got now) where the batter gets to run down the bases with bat-in-hand and can swing at anyone in his way? Inside defensive "position players"¯ with bats and helmets too. Very interesting! Might slow the game down a bit, but worth the wait. Bill

Did you mean golf should be like this Jerry?

You've had better columns, and I hate to say this, based on several recent things you have written this past year, you may have leanings, sorry to embarrass you.
expansion at Springs School Referendum
February 11, 2018 | 11:53 AM
Letter to the Editor
East Hampton INDEPENDENT
February 11, 2018
To the Editor,
The overtaxed Springs School District is being asked to buy a "Pig in a Poke"¯*.
Through a sleight of hand by the School Board by withholding our taxes as a very large "Reserve Fund"¯ , it only appears to be a 17 million and not 23 million expansion. We also need to consider the added yearly Annual School Budget increases (information never received after requests). How much is this going to actually cost Springs tax payers? Until we know, how can we be expected to pay for this?
This is a very large facility and a huge property re-construction. It will take years to complete and we will be paying for it for decades (long after the kids who weather the construction have left the school).
Sadly, the only way to get a reasonable plan is to vote this down on March 6th, 1-9pm at the school and insist that we get only what we can pay for.
*Pig in a Poke: something that is bought or accepted without knowing its value or seeing it first.

Wind farm in East Hampton New York
February 10, 2018 | 07:40 PM
If this power source is going to effect our ocean
life and our fishing community in a negative way
either put the wind farm on land or find another
alternative. There is much out there; solar panels
and solar panels can be made to stand alone and not on your roof or batteries which Elon Musk of Tesla has
moved his company Solar City into his Tesla company
and has built a huge battery factory with Panasonic.
Not just for his cars but for heating your home as
well. He has done this in some small islands where
they now get their electricity from his batteries2023.
I would have to research this again as this was done
a bit ago and I have, at the moment, forgotten the names
of the islands however, I believe Hawaii was one of them.
What I am referring to is another new invention
or a new way to get your heat for your house and your electric
Appilances. Read up fellow neighbors. This
man Elon Musk has also put space rockets up in space
and created a floating barge where he has successfully
Landed his rockets on which means that they
do not break up and can be used again. And works
in tune with NASA.! He just put a super rocket
up in space with a Tesla electric car attached
to be circling the earth for a long time and he
has helped NASA in bringing supplies to our
astronauts and the space ships came back landing
on his floating dock. Okay, that is it for me.
Definitely I am for more research on our wind
turbines before it is attempted.

I agree your article.
February 09, 2018 | 04:47 PM
Your article makes me confront my reality. My boyfriend might be a perpetual boyfriend. He is more than 50 and never been married even though he had a few long-term relationships. His old girlfriends are married or engaged with tangible and simple men. I feel like I can understand their choice to break up with my boyfriend. It might be a time to give up on him, but painful.

So sorry, hope is still feeling good and hope you are also.
My husband has leukemia (CLL) and can't take the flu shot. Chicken soup on the stove and fingers crossed. That's it!

Woody Allen : why Dylan doesn't press civil charges ?
February 02, 2018 | 10:08 PM
Thanks for your article. Maybe you could have pointed that, unless I'm mistaken (I'm not an US citizen), Dylan could still try to press civil charges "" she likely has until age 48 to do that ? So, why she doesn't ?
February 01, 2018 | 12:09 PM
Finally! Thank you--if the lynch mob enthusiasts would stop for a minute to read the back story on Mia Farrow-- it is clear who is the abuser--Tragic, first and foremost for Dylan who has been 'sacrificed' to satisfy Mia's vindictiveness-- then tragic for woody --whose life and work has been tied forever to Mia's nasty accusations.
(Read the lyrics to Dory Previn's song about Mia Farrow for an accurate portrayal).
January 31, 2018 | 11:18 PM
This is an excellent, factual and well written account of what has happened to Woody Allen. There is no doubt that we are in a New McCarthyism moment or back to the Salem witch hunt days. It is certainly not funny but extremely dangerous. I am in utter shock and disbelief ... extremely worried that what startrted as a necessary, long overdue and much needed cause (#MeToo) has the risk of taking us back to a past we don't want to be in. Thank you for writing this and hope it gores viral!
January 31, 2018 | 08:03 PM
Farrow was 21 when she married Sinatra. Not 19 as written. And Woody Allen's been married to Soon-Yi Previn was just over 20 years. Not 22 as stated. Other than that, I agree with every word.
Allen's been badly victimised by Mia Farrow, the press, and, regrettably, many of the Me Too movement.
January 31, 2018 | 06:43 PM
Finally-thank you for writing this- the #metoo movement is in danger of becoming nothing more than a mob lynching by accusers with their own agendas.
It is true, Dylan Farrow has been victimized-- but not by her father.
"Beware of Young Girls", the song Dory Previn wrote after Mia Farrow became pregnant by Dory's husband, Andre Previn. Mia was living in their home at the time.

Loved your story and it reminded me of my dog Charlie who died a few years ago. I miss my Westie. However, they do get sick and I have spent a small fortune on his health. I hesitate getting another because West Highland terriers have so many health issues. The original breeder really messed up the gene pool. It's an interesting story about how this breed went from a brown dog to white after a tragic hunting accident by a Scottish farmer. A quick brown fox jumped over a lazy dog. The lazy brown dog was shot. His brown dogs would never again be mistaken for a fox.His dog is now known as the white West Highland terrier like the one on the bottle of scotch.
# ME TOO
January 18, 2018 | 10:18 PM
HI Rick, Thank you so much for reporting on this important story. Now with the # Me Too- we see the breath of sexual abuse- but still I think so many young people who have been abused by priests still suffer quietly in shame. Having at least two priests who were abusers sent to Sag Harbor, how can we let them know they need to find help. I read in Newsday on 12/21 that the Diocese is extending the deadline for sex abuse fund. Only you have written about this out here as far as I see.
Maybe you will do another follow up story....unless you already did and I missed it.

RHP terrible corporation
January 17, 2018 | 07:43 AM
Just got a letter from rhp warning that if my dogs don't stop barking I will be removed from the park, My dogs are INDOOR DOGS & when i went to speak to the manager i was told this wasn't about the barking dogs, it was about pet registration. I'm pretty sure this is called "Deceptive business practices" & is ILLEGAL! Next, in my investigation of this, it was only the majority of the Americans in the park who have dogs that got this warning as 95% of this park are from Mexico and I'm pretty sure this is called Discrimination as a means to get the Americans out of this park in Thornton Colorado. RHP are a terrible company and need to be put in check!
