In Facebook, veritas.
Used to be you had to pay the local pub a visit to get the scoop on what people were "truly" thinking about all things great and small.
Now, Facebook gives you a glimpse at people's true feelings. Convenient for a news reporter, but regrettably it prevents me from blaming alcohol for some of the more crackerdoodle opinions I've read in the past couple of days.
Sometimes my job is fun.
Okay, my job is always fun..but some days simply stand out.
Today was one of those days.
I've found that,as I've gotten older , I've become more touched by; more fascinated by people's stories and their myriad life experiences.

I like to believe it's made me a better journalist.
All eyes will be on White Plains Mayor Adam Bradley on Monday.
After a weekend of cooling off time, Bradley is due back in court, where a date's expected to be set for a trial on charges that he assaulted his wife, Fumiko.

It has been a brutal weekend for so many residents of Westchester who were just coming up for air from the last storm! More than 60 thousand customers are without power tonight.
Con Edison now says it may take a good part of the week to restore everyone! They're bringing in crews from out of state; Ohio, Pennsylvania and Georgia to help with the cleanup and restoration. Greenburgh Town Supervisor Paul Feiner described his town to me tonight as a "warzone" and says this storm is hands down the WORST in recent memory.
It was a sad and painful experience this past weekend. One that no one should ever have to go through, let alone their kids. I returned home Sunday to find our beloved pet chickens, who are cooped up, except when we are out with them to monitor for predators, were brutally killed by a roaming, stray dog!
More snow's on the way to Westchester.
The good news is, forecasters say it won't pack a whallop like the storm
last week. But it's expected to dump anywhere from 1-3" of snow in many
areas... 4" in some.
Many kids are off this week for school break. We'll see how that shakes
down with regards to how well roadways are cleared for commuters tomorrow...
What an awful story! Just as the 2010 Winter Olympics was to begin for
people with hopes and dreams of being the best of the best in their sport,
a young athlete from the nation of Georgia was killed today during luge
practice. Officials say 21 year old, Nodar Kumaritashvili was traveling at
some 95 miles an hour on the track in Canada as he was training for the
event, which is set to begin Saturday. Scary thing was a lot of athletes
complained this week that perhaps this track was "too fast." At least a
