California's Asian community is increasingly alarmed by multiple Asian-on-Asian mass shootings, including many deaths.

This hits home hard because my wife and son are both Asian and US citizens who fly like American eagles.

 

'But the shooter was Asian!' That doesn't negate the reality of anti-Asian violence.

It's an instinctive rebuttal to any support being sent to my community as if the shooter also being Asian makes it any less devastating.

Why leave the USA in any way, be it via automobile, bus, train, cruise ship, or airplane when you can enjoy an American staycation?

This one has to be filed as I will believe it whenever I actually see it only because I have heard this story way too many times before.

Just after moving to The Bronx in the 1990s to build and launch News 12, I returned to work in NYC long before the millennium. Since then, I began reading and listening to politicians yapping about giving a new facelift to Orchard Beach. This has been going on for four Mayors and some with several terms in office.

Dejavu all over again? Could it be true that the only man-made beach in the city could be getting a new life?
