Bookman: How much is too much for Herschel Walker’s ‘family-values’ voters?

BY: - October 5, 2022

You can tell Herschel Walker was raised right. After all, only a gentleman would think to send a “Get well” card – hand-signed, from #34! — to the girlfriend whose abortion he had just financed. That’s classy, or as close to classy as you’re going to find in this mess. It is not classy to […]

BY: - September 27, 2022

None of us was around in 1901, when President Theodore Roosevelt used his iconic monocle to squint 121 years into the future. Just imagine if he hadn’t.

I don’t know how it could be, not with the most important and controversial trial in American history looming in its not-too-distant future. Now, maybe that trial will never happen. After months of investigative work into an alleged criminal conspiracy to interfere with and […]

“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be gangster.” It’s one of the greatest opening lines in cinematic history. It opened the classic film, “Goodfellas,” and was spoken by the late Ray Liotta, in his portrayal of Henry Hill, an associate of the Lucchese crime family before he became an FBI […]
