Anthony Papa: Randy Credico Makes the Ballot for NYC Mayor
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Randy Credico, a celebrated political satirist and activist, who made a run for Senator Chuck Schumer's seat in 2009 but failed to get enough valid signatures on the ballot because his campaign had been infiltrated, has succeeded this time and has made the ballot for NYC Mayor. Credico who can be pretty funny at times is dead serious in his campaign to become the mayor of NYC. Recently he was interviewed on NY1's award winning political talk show Inside City Hall with Errol Louis. In that interview Credico revealed his platform which represents the most progressive voice in politics today which includes calling for the end of the war on drugs, ending the racist stop-and-frisk police policies and taxing Wall Street. Sometimes in life you meet people that will change you forever. This is what happened to me when I met Randy in 1997. I don't know if it was destiny or by chance that our lives crossed paths. All I know is that our partnership gave birth to a street move ...

William Bradley: Mad Men: Are You Not Entertained?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Will Mad Men regain the acclaim that made it the best drama on television? Based on the response to To Have and To Hold, so far the answer would have to be no. This may have been the most entertaining episode of the still new Season 6. But I have to say my enjoyment of it diminished as soon as I watched Mad Men creator Matt Weiner's accompanying iTunes commentary on it. Right off the top, he declares: "This episode's a pretty painful exercise in hypocrisy. And it's really about cheating, and the morality that goes with sliding past things." In other words, the whole thing is about how awful these people are. To borrow a line from a rather well-known movie on a different topic: "Are you not entertained?!" Are you not entertained? Is this not why you are here? Is this why we are here? To receive moral instruction and to be told that the '60s really weren't the fun that most people say they were? The show has gotten, let's say, a bit less than subtle, more than ...

Brace yourself for a shock, gentle theatergoer. There's no delicate way of putting this. ''Cry-Baby,'' the latest Broadway musical based on a John Waters movie, is ... tasteless.
