Barbra Streisand gushed more than once that Monday’s concert at downtown Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena, the closing date of her 13-concert “The Music…The Mem’ries…The Magic! Tour,” was to be her last concert.
She never grandstanded the statement or milked it for melancholy. She said it with what sounded like gratitude — a theme she would return to often during the two-plus-hour, 26-song set. This was the longest show of the tour, which was fitting since … Read more »

Each note brought sighs of reverie, each lovelorn lyric oohs and ahhs and applause.
All Barbra Streisand had to do was smile and sing, and the sold-out crowd at Tampa’s Amalie Arena was a big bowl of buttah in her palms.
“I’ve never been here, never been to Tampa-St. Pete,” Babs admitted Wednesday night, as if the nearly 12,000 fans in attendance didn’t know.
This was Stresiand’s first local concert after a half … Read more »

Barbra Streisand leaves little room for error when she’s onstage.
Her Sunday night show at Toyota Center was an exercise in perfectionism. Tasteful tea sets sat on tables. Flowers were tastefully arranged. A waitress in a black apron refreshed the tea during intermission.
Streisand herself clicked on an electric candle during the introduction to “Papa, Can You Hear Me?” from “Yentl.”
A large teleprompter hung above the audience halfway across the floor. Every … Read more »

The witch-hunt of Hillary Clinton has been underway for several decades. Comparing 17th century notions of witchcraft with rightwing accusations against Clinton, Stacy Schiff rightly notes in her “New York Times” article, “[Witches] appear suspect in advance of their crimes.” Susan Faludi wrote this weekend,
[Clinton] has been deranging conservatives since ‘92, when wounded Republican invincibility merged with wounded male prerogative… she’s cast not just as a political combatant but

My heart is bleeding…my tears are falling…because President Shimon Peres is no longer in this world. He was a father figure not only to his beloved country of Israel, but also to me, because he was what I imagined my father would have been like.
Shimon’s mind was expansive and his heart was compassionate. He was a brilliant statesman, gifted with the ability to listen to others who did not share his views and still … Read more »

When a politician ends almost every sentence with “believe me”… don’t! He’s probably lying.
According to PolitiFact, Donald Trump’s statements are rated “false,” “mostly false,” and “pants on fire” 71 percent of the time. In other words, the majority of the time that Trump speaks, he is not telling the truth.
But do the facts matter to Donald Trump or many in the media who are too entertained to correct his lies? We
