Booze not necessary

Restaurant

I personally know a few casual and other regular drinkers, where on any given 24 hour cycle they might have a few drinks. But after my divorce to a woman who drank, when it came to dating, I would eventually learn that I preferred gals who were teetotalers.

The Black Whale

Restaurant

This is City Island's oldest restaurant. When they re-opened The Black Whale on City Island in 1998, the goal was to continue the tradition of the infamous Black Whale of the 60s and 70s while updating the restaurant to serve today's needs.

US NATIONAL DEBT

Idea

United States' national debt is the amount owed by the federal government of the United States. The measure of the public debt is the value of the outstanding federal securities at a point of time that have been issued by the Treasury and other federal government agencies.

Neither one of the politicians who have announced their candidacy for the nation's top position has been willing to say how they will solve the national debt.

According to Congressional Budget Office projections, a $534 billion deficit for 2016 is $100 billion more than in 2015.

Should tipping be necessary?

Restaurant

Tipping may not be a good system, whether its done in America, Europe, or Asia. In fact, in many of these countries tipping is not a part of the national culture.

In countries where gratuities are the norm, some employers pay workers with the expectation that their wages will be supplemented by tips. Some folks criticize the inherent social awkwardness in transactions that involve tipping, the inconsistency of tipping for some services but not similar ones, and the irrationality of basing tips on price, rather than the amount and quality of service.

BISTRO SK

Restaurant

City Island's French BISTRO SK is a welcome addition to the mix of eateries in this charming nautical community. Formerly doing business as Tree House, the restaurant's new owner Stephane Kane was drawn here by our diversity and truly enjoys this City Island avenue location.

Global Refugee Crisis

Problem

Although refugees have long been a constant and for years accepted as part of human migration, the development of the nation-state and fixed borders in the 19th century has forced some countries to shun refugees and turn them into international pariahs.

Today, a global human tragedy of refugees now appears to be spreading everywhere. What in the world must we do to react? The plight of desperate people who are trying to flee their homes by land or sea is a humanitarian crisis that needs to be addressed.
