CI A Brilliant Place To Retire


Our nation's oldest baby boomers have begun turning 65 this year. While some have already retired and others will work for years to come, they stand to reshape retirement, just as they did every other stage of their lives. That's especially true when it comes to where to live: While the previous generation might have been happy to put aside careers and seek out an endless summer in Florida or Arizona, no single approach to retirement is going to work for this diverse bunch. This group has too much going on: They're educated; many love to travel; they're active, curious, and social. So as we went in search of the best place to retire, we recommend the city for the urban-inclined, a park side town for lovers of the outdoors, and a beach destination for lovers of the water and sun worshipers. After all, if baby boomers hate one thing, it's being boxed in. Now, even in their golden years, they don't have to be.

Retirees don't have to trade in fun in the sun and golf for life in the big city and the convenience of having stores and amenities in close proximity. New York City has seen an influx of the over-65 set. When it comes to city living, though, it's hard to beat City Island for its size, quality of life, culture, and abundance of outdoor activities. For those who want to continue to work, it's particularly ideal: The area is home to plenty of start-ups hungry for your business advice.

The Politics of Hate


The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination. Don Williams, Jr.



The definition of censorship is the control of information and ideas circulated within a society. In the 20th Century, censorship was achieved through the examination of books, plays, films, television and radio programs, news reports, and other forms of communication for the purpose of altering or suppressing ideas found to be objectionable or offensive. The rationales for censorship have varied, with some censors targeting material considered indecent or obscene; heretical or blasphemous; or seditious or treasonous. Thus, ideas have been suppressed under the guise of protecting basic social institutions: Family, Church, and State.

To understand censorship, and the impulse to censor, it is necessary to strip away the shock epithet value that is attached to the word at first utterance. One must recognize that censorship and the ideology supporting it go back to ancient times, and that every society has had customs, taboos, or laws by which speech, dress, religious observance, and sexual expression were regulated.

In Athens, where democracy first emerged, censorship was known as a means of enforcing the orthodoxy. Indeed, Plato was the first recorded thinker to formulate a rationale for intellectual, religious, and artistic censorship. In his ideal state outlined in The Republic, official censors would prohibit mothers and nurses from relating tales deemed bad or evil. Plato also proposed that unorthodox notions about God or the hereafter be treated as crimes and that formal procedures be established to suppress heresy. Freedom of speech in Ancient Rome was reserved for those in positions of authority...etc.
