Fascinating, yet unsung New Yorkers discovered by the Manhattan Voyeur

Where Were You When You Learned Dave Letterman Dumped You

Where Were You When You Learned Dave Letterman Dumped You I was in a yellow cab on Sixth Avenue heading home from an acupuncture session with David Baron. It was 5:45 on Thursday, April  3rd. I wish I didn’t know about it. I felt Dave’s rejection on my body somewhere between my stomach and my…

Acupuncturist Extraordinaire: David Baron M.S., L.Ac.

Your Manhattan Voyeur has important advice. Being treated by David Baron, acupuncturist,  is a transformative experience. As John Stuart Mill wrote: “pleasure is the absence of pain”. As an aficionado of acupuncture, I can testify that David’s unstinting commitment to the patient’s absence of pain is matched only by his amazing skills. When chill winds…

Woody Allen Passed a Lie Detector Test

Woody Allen passed a lie detector test about their troubles of 1992.  Mia Farrow refused to take a test.

My Heart Goes Out To Mia Farrow

My heart goes out to Mia Farrow. The poor woman strikes me from a distance as super intelligent and tortured by conflicting demons. Reading the highly researched article by Robert B. Weide in the Daily Beast is a must for people who are still curious about the 1992 scandal that involved Farrow, Woody Allen, Soon…

Your Manhattan Voyeur has had it. I’m totally stressed out from ducking and absorbing shocks over disasters, global and local that dimwit news people push into my face as they compete for ratings by sensationalizing strangers’ violent tragedies. When I switch on the TV to catch something cheery like The Big Bang Theory or Seinfeld…

Conversations In The Car With Jerry on crackle.com

I just made a day indeed worth living. The fun was watching Jerry Seinfeld’s sublime creation: he picks up a fellow comedian and drives to get coffee. Treat yourself by finding him and his friends on crackle.com. It’s all about Jerry Seinfeld and his relaxed presence talking to people he likes.

The Annals of Unsolved Crimes: The Important Book by Edward Epstein

Edward Jay Epstein’s latest book is a triumph resulting from decades of his superior research and superior brainpower. This book’s so cleanly and persuasively written that a teenager might read it and love it and learn. The Annals of Unsolved Crimes is a total page-turner. Each chapter unveils new data and ways of looking at…

Michael Douglas Throat Cancer News: A false step?

I worked for Michael Douglas (supposedly running his film production company, but that’s a whole other story) for four years during his heyday in the late 1980’s.  No matter how difficult he was I was never afraid of him and had great compassion for him. I grew to admire  his great intelligence–primitive, emotional, largely untouched…

Don’t Bank at J.P. Morgan Chase. Chase Mugs Clients.

It started last week when I was mugged on the Madison Avenue bus. Then I was mugged seven more times by J.P.Morgan Chase bank. Buyer beware of too big to fail/jail banks.

Black Men Lead Us: and I’m Not Just Talking President Obama

Do white people have soul? Black men make poetry in every day life, perhaps in part because they are among the most oppressed adults in our society,  And this singular group that populates our prisons is also perhaps the most influential in driving the culture of human interaction. Let’s start with the poignance of calling…
