THE TRUE SUE

I no longer work at News 4 New York, but I enjoyed serving stories for anchorwoman Sue Simmons when I was a field producer there.

Simmons was one of the jovial members of the team, constantly poking fun at herself and everyone else on the set. She liked to laugh. So it's no surprise that many viewers may remember a Groundhog Day impersonation (which can be viewed here).

Happy Taylor Swift Album Drop Weekend to all the Swifties who are still celebrating. While we’re making our way through.

The 31 new tracks that we woke up to this morning, the internet content machine is already churning: 

She has 232 songs on the Hot 100 in total, more than any other female artist and only second to Drake overall. Swift is also the only woman to replace herself on the Hot 100 — and she's done it three times.

The Cuba Day celebration at the White House was a significant event last week and a successful political affair to remember.

This was especially true with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, a Cuban American, speaking alongside discussions on Cuba policy and migration management. Mayorkas's participation is notable, particularly in the context of the recent dismissal of articles of impeachment against him.

ROY AND DON

Some say like Roy Cohen, Donald Trump may go out the same way. Shunned by New Yorkers as a senior toddler and total fraud.

The two bosom buddies were unrepentant political hitmen who would constantly flout the rules but didn’t get away with it forever. You can dress them up but don’t turn your backs on these scoundrels for one second.

Here is a flashback that is quite unusual and an excellent example of music's ability to bridge cultural divides and bring folks together.

Upworthy.com offered this blast from the past showing this was a pivotal year in American culture. The hippies and the counterculture were ascendant, and everything that came before in entertainment was as square as can be.
