I am alive!

So sorry for not writing the past few weeks...but I've been in Aspen enjoying it so much I couldn't stop! The intellectual atmosphere, the music , the dance...I will be publishing the daily diary in my column on starting next Friday. But now it's time to go home...catch you in New York. SS

Good news!!

Well, after the Fourth of July I was feeling a bit sad about the state of things here and then I found hope! I'm at The Aspen Institute for the Ideas Festival and one of the speakers was Supreme Court Justice Breyer. His talk was a marvelous experience,filled with humor, wit, awareness and intelligence. Afterwards, I got to talk to him and told him that he renewed my hope in that I realized that the Justices (well, some of them) are really aware of us...what we are feeling and thinking. They are not in some Ivory Tower, and with justices like him, we are in good hands!
