I remember the first time I was drunker than a skunk. It was New Year?s Eve 1968. I was home from college, heading to JFK International to pick up my buddy Tony Malara. Tony had been in Vietnam a year with the 173rd Airborne. I couldn?t imagine what he?d been through. That year, my biggest worry had been maintaining academic honors despite a severe case of senioritis. Tony was not the same guy I drove to the airport a year earlier. He was sullen, distant, and when he saw me his most salient emotion was exasperated relief.

Letters to the Editor Students with disabilities need programs The governor is proposing more than $1.5 billion in ongoing cuts to K-12 education. The proposed cuts come at a critical time when our schools are attempting to close the achievement gap, especially for children with disabilities. Cuts to K-12 education have a major impact on special education because these services are federally mandated and still need to be provided to students with disabilities regardless of the level of funding provided.

Not everyone has angels. Those who do have paid the price. They pay the price of loss. They pay the price of pain. They pay the price of bereavement. I write this on May 1, 2011. Tonight, Osama bin Laden is dead. The celebration can be somber, or not. There are jokes about Donald Trump. (“He won’t believe Osama bin Laden is dead until he sees the death certificate.”) There are jokes about President Obama. There are jokes about bin Laden. There are phone calls and tweets, posts and emails.

It's always the story that draws me into the subtleties of life; those are the happenings that are most profound. In the story I find more than the story. Within the story lies the root of meaning and the context of the message. Memorial Day is upon us and I wanted to write a story to commemorate the memory of soldiers who have sacrificed so you and I can enjoy what we have today. If we lose sight of their sacrifice we'd hardly believe that freedom isn't free. My story is about Denny A. Malvey, my boxing coach and surrogate grandfather.

Corrigan's bar was on the corner of 237th and White Plains Road in the Bronx. It's now a Dominican market. The last time I was there, I was 23 and drinking with the Bronx boys. I was shipping out to Vietnam in the morning. “One more round, Joey boy,” my friend Pete said. We raised our glasses and declared, “Bronx boys forever!” That was the last time we were together. The war, suicide, drugs, alcoholism and murder took its toll on the old gang. Life in the Bronx was never the same.

Q. The Congressional hearings into the possible radicalization of Muslims in America has stirred emotions on both sides of the debate, with one Muslim-American representative leaving the room in tears after testifying about an American Muslim killed on 9/11. The investigations, started by Rep. Pete King (R - NY), are designed to focus on what he believes is a rising domestic terror threat from American Muslims. He also wants to look into what he sees as a distinct lack of cooperation from the U.S. Islamic community.
