Costanera Cocina Peruana

Two days after Hurricane Sandy struck I was finally able to get out and see the devastation in my New Jersey neighborhood. What a mess. After driving through several towns I ended up in Montclair, New Jersey, because they had power. Looking for a place to get a hot cup of soup, I went to Costanera Cocina Peruana located on the main drag…Bloomfield Ave.

New York Times Endorsement For Barack Obama

New York Times Endorsement For Barack Obama

EDITORIAL
Barack Obama for Re-election
Published: October 27, 2012 713 Comments

The economy is slowly recovering from the 2008 meltdown, and the country could suffer another recession if the wrong policies take hold. The United States is embroiled in unstable regions that could easily explode into full-blown disaster. An ideological assault from the right has started to undermine the vital health reform law passed in 2010. Those forces are eroding women’s access to health care, and their right to control their lives. Nearly 50 years after passage of the Civil Rights Act, all Americans’ rights are cheapened by the right wing’s determination to deny marriage benefits to a selected group of us. Astonishingly, even the very right to vote is being challenged.

That is the context for the Nov. 6 election, and as stark as it is, the choice is just as clear.

Sista ToFunky’s Interview With Dr. Yvonne Sims

Sista ToFunky’s Interview With Dr. Yvonne Sims

I remember rushing to my computer to order my copy of Women Of Blaxploitation the minute I learned this book had been published. I felt as if there was someone else who “got it”… about one of the greatest times in Black cinematic history and the impact that Black women had in these films.

The Second Obama Vs. Romney Debate

The Second Obama Vs. Romney Debate

Wow, what a difference two weeks makes. I did not dump on the President after the first debate, like the rest of the world did. BUT, I must admit that I prefer the man who came out in the second debate swinging on the first question, kept spanking his opponent for 90 minutes, went in for the uncontested 47% death blow at the very end, and dropped the mic on the stage on the way out. That is the man that I voted for and will get my support for four more years. To continue with my Ali analogies, Barack is a “Baaad man”.
