EL BARRIO, EL FALLS – Some weeks you don’t even have to go find a story to talk about, they find you. Like a blindside neutral zone hit, this weeks topics hit me hard in a 24-hour span between Thursday and Friday afternoons. It was harder deciding which song should be the Song of the […]

BRONX, NY – As Brother Junoir Blaber said yesterday, baseball is in full swing… but there will be plenty of time to talk about that. The 2016 Presidential race is also in full swing- even in non-swing states – and since this contest is down to two teams (sorry, Bernie) let’s stick with it for a […]
