There’s a narcissistic fraud in the White House. An angry, hollow, vindictive man is running the country. What bottomless emotional need does he have for acclaim? It is hard to know where his rampant narcissism ends and serious mental problems ensue. He lies prodigiously and for no reason except he obviously has an unclear vision of what the truth is.

On the evening of May 6, 2017, Brooklyn’s Barclays Center was filled to capacity and humming. Tickets for Barbra’s highly-anticipated concert sold out weeks in advance, yet by 8:10 p.m., two sixth-row seats remained conspicuously empty.

If you had floor seats or binoculars, it was a good night for stargazing.  Donna Karan, Barry Diller, John McEnroe and his wife, singer Patty Smyth, Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Josh Brolin with his wife, Kathryn, Jim Brolin, Sigourney … Read more »

To All of Barbra’s Fans,

Today we are celebrating a very special birthday for our beloved Barbra. As if being the best-selling female recording artist in history wasn’t enough, Barbra has also been passionately fighting for so many important causes throughout her life: women’s health and women’s equality, civil rights and voting rights, educational opportunity and the preservation of the planet. In 2014, Barbra co-founded the Women’s Heart Alliance (WHA) and together they are leading the movement to promote women’s … Read more »

President Trump didn’t even have the guts to do the job himself. Instead, he hid in the shadows and sent his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, to do the dirty work of telling the country that the administration would no longer shield from deportation 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to this country as children.

Mr. Sessions, a longtime anti-immigrant hard-liner, was more than up to the task. In a short, disingenuous speech, he said
