Episode #910: 4th of Kringle
First Broadcast: 11/29/21
Is it me, or did "Black Friday" start a lot earlier this year compared to years past? Then again, hasn't the Christmas season been starting earlier and earlier each year as well? Are you all set for "Cyber Monday"? Have you got your proof of COVID-19 vaccination handy so you can see movies in theaters again? There were a bunch I missed, not the least of which was the new Bill & Ted film that came out during the pandemic. But the pandemic isn't over yet! So you gotta get vaccinated, otherwise you run the risk of joining all the idiots who have won the Herman Cain Award so far, who have been persuaded by all the idiots who keep protesting vaccine mandates! Is a severe lack of critical thinking what led us all to this point in history? The point where dozens of people are camped out in Dallas, Texas, seriously waiting for John F. Kennedy and his son--you know, the 35th U.S. President who was assassinated in 1963, and the founder of George magazine who died in a plane crash in 1999--to return from the dead??? Maybe I should just stick to Thanksgiving leftovers, since they're a lot less complicated...

So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a this neat little public access TV show on Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else, Kim. The complicated answer is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times, the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.

If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel like sending me snail mail, the address is:

Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009

You can also email me at, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
