When is a boondoggle not a boondoggle?

user
A lot of people in the advertising business think of a boondoggle the way the Supreme Court thinks of porn –– they can't define it, but they know it when they see it. I don't think it's that hard to draw the line. It all comes down to responsibility. If you're doing something you honestly intend to help your client, you're not engaging in boondogglery. If you're doing something for your own personal gratification at the expense of your client, you are. Take me, for exam...

The film-maker, in Thailand to deliver a series of talks organised by the International Peace Foundation, said “Bush was the most dangerous president in history,” because of his policy on ...

"Erev tov, Mr. Eran Riklis": “The words that come to mind when one sees “Lemon Tree”/”Etz Lemon”, which premiered this past week, and is currently playing at IFC, and “Syrian Bride”, are courage, resiliency, and loss. In “Lemon Tree”/”Etz Lemon”, the strong-willed Palestinian female lead, Salma Zidane, played by Hiam Abbass, from “The Visitor”, faces losing her inherited lemon orchard when an Israeli Defense Minister Navon and his wife, Mira Navon, played by Rona Lipa...

Big Mike Craft at The Saratoga Race Track and Harness Track

user
The summer in upstate New York is as nice as any place in the World. We call them August Nights. The day's at the track are usually hot and humid. The nights go down in the low 70's and high 60's. It  is a nice time of the year. The Polo matches are exciting and well run by Jim Rossi and Mike Bucci. I'm still waiting for their mystery Hotel to be built, but I like them both. When I show up at polo, I am treated as a gentleman. The food is always good and the Staff is wonderful. I like Polo an...

Big Mike Craft and the Meyer Lansky Plot To Kill Trudeau of Canada and Castro of Cuba

user
It was 1974 and Mr. Lansky was still pissed off at the World for not letting him buy it. I had been with Meyer since 1968, in my own world, in upstate N.Y. My mentor was my father, who worked for Meyer and Doc Farone, an old ally and bootlegger with Meyer. Doc was the first legitimate Molsen Beer Distributer in America. I learned in 68 that he had just used Molsen as a front to ship moonshine back into Canada. Doc would put me on errands with money to Ray Patriarca in Providence, R.I. and giv...

REALTY BITES

user
  DEVELOPERS CHARGE INTEREST IF CONSUMERS DELAY ANY PAYMENT BUT DON'T PAY WHEN THEY ARE AT FAULT It's a long list of grouses, being held against real estate developers. Cases such as delayed possession, cancellation of allotments and charging excessive interest rates are very common. In fact, industry estimates say that out of every fresh 100 apartments, 60 to 70 of them are delayed for possession and the reason is due to slow construction.    Interestingly, the developers charge interest i...

In the past two years, the Festival has honored Jonathan Demme and Martin Scorsese, specifically for their documentary work. Last night, it was Spike Lee's turn, as the iconoclastic director was honored with the Guggenheim Symposium for h...
