In an interview I did some years ago with Hugh Downs, I asked him how he finds the time to get so much accomplished. He explained that people who complain about not being able to find the time to do things they say are important to them are approaching the issue with the wrong mind-set. […]

Now that the Trumpster has done an about face on the very issue that brought him to center stage from the outset of his presidential campaign, is it time to write him off as just another well-intentioned guy who got corrupted by the system — before he even got elected no less? Maybe … but […]

A few years back, Time magazine ran a cover story about greed.  Though it possessed many flawed premises and opinions masquerading as facts, it prompted me to reflect on this perpetually misunderstood subject. Among other things, the Time article stated, “Of all the impulses in humanity’s behavioral portfolio, ambition — that need to grab an […]

A visitor from another galaxy might be puzzled as to why so many Americans are so hung up on the issue of skin color. Given that slavery in the United States was abolished more than 150 years ago, you’d think that the subject would have faded into the marred pages of human history by now. […]

Some months ago, following a keynote address I had given, a middle-aged lady approached me and asked if she could speak with me for a few minutes. I told her I’d be more than happy to speak with her, whereupon she began to share with me the difficulty she was experiencing in trying to cope […]

The message to Donald Trump over the past couple of weeks has been crystal clear: Welcome to the world of the Washington Crime Syndicate, Mr. Trump.
