The local media has objected to the Chinese Lantern Festival in Franklin Square even though it is targeted to raise $200,000 for the maintenance of the square. I ask in the Huffington Post if this opposition is due to xenophobia.

I undress the Naked Magicians, how they came to be and overcame the trepidation of appearing naked. It's a tough job but someone has to do it.

Who wants to talk women's equality with Geena Davis and Jewel at the UN? My friends Jill and Richard Fitzburgh have started a Foundation for Gender Equality that is hosting a conference, dinner, and concert at the UN on May 17. Lara Logan from 60 Minutes is going to talk about her assault in Egypt.  Let me know if you are interested. #genderequality   #feminism   #women   #geenadavis   #laralogan   #Jewel

My cousin, who grew up to own the largest group dental practice in New York State, was a Dead Head. If I wanted to see him, I had to join him at a Grateful Dead concert. Now 35 years later, I went to see the concert of Dead and Company, which consists of the 3 surviving members of the Dead plus John Mayer. They were great!! Here's my review.

The Second Lady, Dr. Jill Biden, spoke at the fundraiser for Philadelphia Academies Inc, which is headed by Lisa Nutter. Philadelphia Academies pioneered the experiential (hands on) learning experience. Natch, I was there to cover it.

Like Alexander Hamilton, former Sears CEO and Jewish philanthropist Julius Rosenwald is having a moment. First, there was a documentary about his life and now he is going to be inducted into the National Museum of American Jewish History Only in America Hall of Fame at a gala in NYC. My story includes a moving account of Senior Advisor to the President Valerie Jarrett's familial connection to Rosenwald.

Medical marijuana is now legal in Pa. I went to a marijuana conference to learn what happens next. No, I wasn't offered Purple Urkel but learned about HVAC systems for plants and the possibility of taking my cannabis related business public. #marijuana

I wrote a wrap up of PIFA for the Huffington Post. It's noteworthy because i was able to use words such as thingumujing, squonk, and penny farthing in the story. You have to read the story to learn their meaning. #PIFA   #pifa2016
