Missing the wonderful Jane Dornacker, comedian, singer, performer, actress and radio traffic reporter who died in a helicopter crash in the Hudson River Oct. 1986. I knew her while I interned at WNBC Radio. I’m writing a short story about my experience with her - keeping her memory alive.

A good life requires us not to simply be slaves serving market forces, but to take ownership of what we do, to identify with it, to find meaning and do something cool. If economic circumstances make this an impossible dream for most of us, then it’s our job as a political entity to change these circumstances, not to extinguish the dream.

There is no minimum length for a sentence that’s acceptable in the eyes of God. Among good writers it is the short sentence that predominates, and don’t tell me about Norman Mailer - he’s a genius. If you want to write long sentences, be a genius.
