Profile Information

Bio
Male, Jewish, in my early sixties, married with kids (well, at this point I guess that should be "kid"). Thanks to Lezlie for avatar artwork - sort of a translation of my screen name. "Salaam" is peace in Arabic, hence the peace sign. (No, my name doesn't mean "hunk of meat" and yes, the pun is intentional.)

Single Sentence Saturday: About teaching a man to fish

My tax dollars at work

This photo was taken in my neighborhood yesterday. It is of a crosswalk light being installed, I think by the State of New York.

Embarrassed by my vote

Posted on September 14, 2018 at 7:25am 19 Comments

Last night I voted in the NY primary. For Governor, I voted for Cynthia Nixon.

This morning, I was informed that, in public, she ordered lox, cream cheese, tomatoes, onions, and capers

on a cinnamon raisin bagel.

Some sins are cardinal. I may have to Repent.
