POSITRACTION: Kind man had given me his weekend time



I received a telegram from India informing me that my mother had died suddenly in March 1967. I was 22 years old and had lost my father two years earlier.

My husband and I were desperate to fly to Bombay and find out what had happened, as my mother had been healthy and well when she left England only a few days prior to her death.

We tried to get airline tickets only to find that Julia, my baby, wasn’t on anyone’s passport. It meant we couldn’t take her.

I was desperate to go but couldn’t leave the baby behind. I phoned the Foreign Office and got through to an official who was sympathetic but explained it was the weekend and nothing could be done until Monday.

I begged him to help me and, to my astonishment, he agreed to help me.

We rendezvoused at Heathrow airport and he put a stamp in my passport, making Julia legal.

I hardly thanked him, I was still crying so hard. But this kind man had given me his weekend time and possibly bent the rules to help.

I am still enormously grateful to my Good Samaritan.

Catherine Teltscher, London

JNEWS: Kinsella, William J. (MC1972) watching the nuke accident for us


NCSU professor sees opportunity in Japan nuclear crisis
By DAVID BRACKEN – Staff Writer

*** begin quote ***

As the nuclear crisis in Japan has played out, William J. Kinsella has been watching with particular interest.

An associate professor in N.C. State University’s Department of Communications, Kinsella, 60, has spent the past decade studying how societies discuss and form public policy around complex scientific and technological issues, especially nuclear energy.

Last year, he spent four months in Germany on a Fulbright scholarship examining every aspect of that country’s nuclear industry. He was in northern Japan in August touring a nuclear fuel processing facility.

“To many citizens, nuclear energy is mysterious or esoteric,” Kinsella says. “It’s my belief that people have that capacity [to understand it], but they’re discouraged from engaging, and the argument that it’s esoteric and mysterious kind of serves the interest of people who would rather not have a robust and therefore complicating public engagement.”

The March 11 earthquake and tsunami in Japan is likely to test that capacity in the United States and around the globe. Kinsella believes the crisis is an opportunity for the general public to have a discussion that is long overdue.

“I think we have a little window of opportunity on this particular issue,” he said. “This is a very timely issue right now. It will get attention from a broader public community in a way that it just wasn’t getting previously.”

Kinsella and his colleagues will try to spark some of that discussion. They are already at work on a research paper about the public dialogue that follows the disaster. And there’s the occasional call for an interview, such as with Bloomberg Businessweek.

JFOUND: Donahue, Thomas Reilly [MC1949] cited on the AFL-CIO


Thomas Reilly Donahue (1928 – )

Home > About Us > Labor History & Culture > History

Tom Donahue, secretary-treasurer of the national AFL-CIO from 1979 to 1995 and president in 1995, was a persuasive champion of the need for labor renewal in the face of a changing economic and political environment. Many of the programs he initiated continue to inspire and inform today’s innovations in organizing and workplace representation.

Donahue grew up in an Irish Catholic family in The Bronx, New York, the son of Thomas R. and Mary E. Donahue. After completing his elementary and secondary schooling, he joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 17, serving as a seaman from 1945–1946. Upon his return to shore, Donahue worked as a part-time organizer with the Retail Clerks International Union and attended Manhattan College, earning his Bachelor of Arts degree in labor relations in 1949.

JEMAIL: Stebbins, Donald M (MC1961) thinks that government makes it easy

Dear Jasper John

You cite MLK’s protest against segregated lunch counters as a good thing, especially his civil disobedience. I agree but wonder how you square your anti-government beliefs with the government’s ultimately outlawing discrimination by private restaurants and other businesses. It was the big, bad “gooferment” that ended segregation with the private owners and local officials howling to continue segregation. (Not to mention murdering people)

In the case of Rosa Parks the federal government intervened and countermanded the evil policies of the Alabama government. Without “big government” blacks in the South would still be second class citizens and suffer ungodly discrimination.

BTW the government makes it very easy to pay tolls these days with the EZ Pass system. Chandler should have invested a little time with our government run toll system and escaped all his problems ( unless he was escaping from a crime and did not want his itinerary known)

Also that terrible recent bus accident near my old neighborhood in the Bronx clearly demonstrated the need for more government regulation of interstate transportation. Private enterprise often sacrifices safety for prices and profits.

Sincerely yours,
Donald M Stebbins
BS 1961

[JR: I'll try a new spaced format to respond ---

(1) Technically, the Montgomery City Councils, aka the local Gooferment, and the supposed "State of Alabama" Gooferment passed segregation laws. Then the supposed "Federal" Gooferment came in an overrode them. Do you think "greedy" businessmen would turn away paying Customers without being told to do it by Gooferment?

(2) Again, the "greedy" bus owners had been running their DESEGREGATED bus lines for years until the local Gooferment, a gang calling itself the "City of Montgomery" issued a diktat segregating the buses. The Bus Owners were the principle opposition.

(3) Oh, yes, without Massa Gooferment, and Massa Kennedy, blacks would be on the Plantation again. (Unlike where they are now. Trapped in a cycle of welfare "farming" and the principal victims in the "(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs". Free at last cause the Federal Gooferment done saved them.) Ignoring for the moment that the country was massively behind the Freedom Marches. White folk were appalled at the local Gooferment's actions. Or, don't you remember the history. Did you think the Federal Gooferment even noticed until the people were in the streets?

(4) Sure, EZPASS makes the Gooferment's chains very light. Ignoring for the moment that the Gooferment has ignored everyone's Fourth Amendment right to be left alone. They have NO business tracking Americans. Him, me, or even you. the Gooferment should be operating road, "taxing" them again for using them, or refusing to accept it's own "money" in violation of the legal tender laws. Right on the CNote it says that they have to accept it. :-) Wouldn't want to break yet another Federal diktat, would we? LOL!

(5) Yup, we sure need Gooferment regulation to keep those buses safe. Excuse me, but weren't the buses already HEAVILY regulated? So does that mean that the various regulators of busses -- Federal, NY State, CT State, NYC, and all the police in between -- all not doing their jobs? Guess so. SO let's add more diktats and hire more bureaucrats so they can NOT do their jobs too. Don't you see that it can NEVER work? Those fourteen people were dead because they believed that the Gooferment was protecting them. They believed the implied promise of the casino and bus company to move their bodies safely from here to there. If they'd been vigilant, they be protecting themselves. Holding the casino and bus company up to scrutiny and retribution.

(6) Monopolies, which can ONLY be created by Gooferment fiat, often are allowed to sacrifice everything for profits. Which somehow, all or part, make it back into the pockets of politicians and bureaucrats. In a truly free market, businessmen "love" their Customers who make profits possible. Killing them or getting them killed is bad for repeat business.

I'm sorry that you find it so distasteful to even consider that Gooferment is NOT the answer to our collective prayers for Salvation. It's dumb, brutish, and can't find its own <synonym for donkey> in dark closet. Worse than that it's dangerous. It kills, maims, and imprisons people. It's force. And that's the problem. Cooperation is much more effective.

--- Guess once again, we'll have to agree to disagree agreeably.]

I was at a program at Manhattan College’s School of Engineering yesterday. The chairman of the civil engineering department said that 78% of the engineering graduates last year found jobs by the summer, while only 9% of the business students did.

JNEWS: Cerrato, Stephen [MC1999] seeks Yonkers City Council


March 28, 2011

Cerrato Anounces His Candicy for Yonkers City Council, 5th District

Yonkers, NY – On the evening of March 23, 2011 at the Polish Community Center in Yonkers, Stephen Cerrato, surrounded by more than 125 supporters, announced his candidacy for Yonkers City Council, 5th District. Mr. Cerrato, a life-long Yonkers resident, spoke about his many reasons for running, including his concerns over the city’s deficit of over $90 million.Cerrato, an attorney and Yonkers small business owner, said that improving the difficult economic situation in Yonkers would require change on the Council and fundamental changes in the way City government operates.

“I, like you, have heard candidates and elected officials talk about issues, like high taxes, wasteful spending, needed improvements in education and the high price of maintaining City services. The conversation cannot be just about identifying issues, it must be about addressing and solving these issues.”

A fresh voice and new leadership; that is what Stephen Cerrato promised the people of the 5th district. He has vowed to engage the people of Yonkers in the governmental process by holding town hall meetings in order to hear his constituents concerns and inform them of the City’s issues. Cerrato pledged to continue this open dialogue with the people if elected this fall.

“We need elected officials to lead by example. They must make sacrifices in City Hall in order to reduce waste and start saving money”, says Cerrato, who is committed to addressing City Hall’s spending habits. Cerrato is also focused on Yonkers getting its fair share of revenue from future development throughout the City. He says, this will serve to relieve the pressure of having to raise taxes.

He holds a Juris Doctor degree from Pace Law School and a Bachelors of Science in accounting from Manhattan College. He resides in the heart of the 5th district with his wife Angela-Joy Lifrieri-Cerrato, also a life-long Yonkers resident, and their two children, Faith, 3, and Stephen, 1. Stephen and Angela have made a conscious decision to raise their children in the city they love.

The Committee to Elect Stephen Cerrato is located at 656 Yonkers Avenue, Yonkers, NY 10710. Learn more at www.stephencerrato.com. Direct email to info@stephencerrato.com

JFound: Rose, Howard [MC????] candidate Teaneck BoE; vote 4/27


Meet the Teaneck Board of Education candidates
Wednesday, March 30, 2011

*** begin quote ***

With incumbent Joseph Cliffe not seeking re-election, two incumbents and four challengers are vying for three board seats on Wednesday, April 27. The Teaneck Suburbanite asked each candidate to explain why he or she is running; to comment on the 2010 and 2011 budgets and on the Shalom Academy Charter School; and to comment on the plans for outsourcing the evening shift custodians and eliminating courtesy busing for students who live 0.9 miles to two miles from the schools they attend.

*** and ***

Howard Rose

Howard Rose, 62, ran for a BOE seat in 2009 and has made two unsuccessful runs for a council. The Northumberland Avenue resident is a Planning Board member and has served as a member and chair of the Cedar Lane Improvement District. He also served as a member of the defunct Financial Advisory Board.

Rose has lived in Teaneck for more than 30 years. Both of his children attended Teaneck public schools, K-12.

A retired college administrator, Rose owns and operates Brier Rose Books on Cedar Lane, which he claims is the only full time used book store in Bergen County. He is a graduate of City University of New York and has a master’s degree in education from Manhattan College.

“My 25 years in student financing and higher education speak for themselves,” said Rose. “I am running because I can have an impact based on my background and experience.”

The 2010 budget has been acknowledged by the BOE as a mistake, Rose said.

“It was the wrong thing at the wrong time and the rejection by the public should not have been unexpected. The board gambled that the council would make some cuts (but did not expect the zero increase). The board should not have put the students and the school system in that position.”

Rose supports the 2011 budget with a basically zero increase. He noted that he has never voted against a school budget.

He supports retention of the staff of evening custodians. “It is an unfair proposition to make a small group of workers bear the financial woes of the board,” Rose said, noting that he would rather see decreases spread out among the 350 plus BOE employees.

The charter school is the law which people have to deal with it, Rose said, adding that only alternative is to make Teaneck schools so superlative that people would not seek a charter school but would rather utilize the public school system. At one time Teaneck schools were considered among the best in the state. “It is not out of reach to achieve this again,” he said. He would urge the board to study curriculums that are being used in the best schools in New Jersey and the nation.

JEMAIL: Dans, Peter E. (MC1957) weighs in on “Lessons”

March 31, 2011

Hi John:

{Extraneous Deleted}

On another subject: I know you have defended the College on the charge of its lacking a Catholic identity. Unfortunately, the bureaucrats had ample evidence. I love the College and still support it financially, but frankly, the College has only itself to blame and is its worst enemy.

Case in Point: This morning, I googled the College’s official website to locate a phone number and under the banner of being a College in the LaSallian Catholic tradition were listed the Upcoming Events. I clicked on the one that read “Lesbian and Gay Families Today: Lessons and Challenges” and learned that this afternoon Nancy Mezey PhD. Director of the Sociology Program and Gender Studies at Monmouth University and author of New Choices, New Families: How Lesbians Decide about Motherhood (2008 JHU Press) would be speaking in the Rodriguez Room from 1-2:30 pm sponsored by the College’s Department of Sociology and Women and Gender Studies(WAGS).

I spoke to someone in Administration who was unaware of the lecture. When I checked back at 2, the event had been erased from the list.

One might make the dubious argument that one needs to hear all sides but, even granting that, there was no mention of a speaker who might hold a more orthodox view. I’m not sure but I believe that this is the same department that sponsored the annual production of “The Vagina Monologues” which I believe was finally suspended.

You can add this to JJ if you wish.

Keep up the good work.

Best regards,

[JR: Dear Doctor Dans, I reported that session in the daily JJ blog on the 29th. I thought it was quite "out there". But, I'm not so sure how weak it is to hear "challenging views". We have to understand the ground we fight on and we are commanded to "love the sinner and hate the sin". You're much more wired in to MC than I am. I do remember dragging my tush around NYC for Comparative Christian and again for Comparative Non-Christian. (Why was Judaism in CC and not in CNC instead?) That experience no more made me a Lutheran as it did a Hindu. But it was close when we met with the Buddhist "bishop" and his tranquility. And close again with Norman Vincent Peale who could inspire the densest injineer and seemed to have fun doing it. I learned a lot from that; even though I didn't know it at the time. Perhaps, these are the same type of "mental stretching" exercises. I'm not sure that it means the NLRB is right. If our foundations are so weak that just hearing ideas shakes them, then maybe the NLRB is correct.]

Just trying to make a difference to our fellow Jaspers. “Doing obits” is a sad duty, but I missed my best friend in high school’s passing for lack of such a notification service.

DuBois, John [MC1968 RIP]

Long story short, he went underground due to the draft. I followed my conscience and went to the USAF. He got involved in underground railway and drugs; I got a security clearance. The “undeclared civil war” of the time divided us. I could have gotten the 70′s version of “Rendition” and brought unwanted attention to him. So we shook hands and went our separate ways.

Many times I’ve thought of “what could have been”. I would have liked to been able to go to his wake. He died in a traffic accident a few years later, but I didn’t find out until nearly a decade later.

Makes me sad. And, mad. Mad that I missed it. And, mad at all the politicians and bureaucrats that sold us down a rat hole. A lost generation. So many lives cut short, ruined, and unalterably changed.

I just shake my head. What could have been.

So, I’m glad when my efforts can make such things as reconnection possible. It’s nice to hear it. Keeps me plugging along.

[JR: Without Mike's help, I'd have been overwhelmed with Jasper Jottings years ago. I still get a lick out knowing that this makes a difference. And, I can't understand MC's short sightedness in its "social media strategy". They fail to understand the basic premise of networking: "First seek to help; then, be helped." Here's hoping that you, my fellow alums, find this helpful. Else it's just a very sad monologue. Your email contributions make it not so sad.]

JNEWS: Carbone, Nick [MC1999] interim coach George Washington baseball


No. 2: Powerful George Washington focused on task at hand without coach
Last Updated: 3:35 AM, April 1, 2011
Posted: 1:56 AM, April 1, 2011

*** begin quote ***

Steve Mandl isn’t around.The architect of George Washington’s baseball program is fighting to get his job back through litigation after being suspended for illegal recruiting. The players who led the Trojans in recent years – from Mike Antonio to Xyruse Martinez and Nestor Bautista – are scattered across the country, Antonio, a third-round pick in last June’s MLB first-year player draft, in Surprise, Ariz. at the Kansas City Royals minor league complex, Bautista in college at Ball State (Indiana) and Martinez at Wharton County Junior College (Texas).

The faces in Washington Heights are brand new. But to those who think the powerhouse is a thing of the past, interim coach Nick Carbone has some bad news.

He hasn’t seen any changes from this current group of Trojans to any of the previous ones. In fact, there is an extra hop to their step, to prove they are just as good without Antonio, Martinez and Bautista, and to win as many games as possible in Mandl’s name.

*** and ***

Carbone, a Manhattan College product who has been on Mandl’s staff the last four years, took over on an interim basis.

“More than just coaching, Coach Mandl has been a mentor to me, he’s been an idol to me and he’s been a great friend,” Carbone said. “It’s his program. Just not having him at practice or games every day, it hurts, it hurts to see him have to go through this.”

Carbone has leaned on pitching coach Rafael Espinal and assistant Ronnie Delarosa, former players and trusted Mandl’s lieutenants. It helps to have such a senior-laden roster which is typically loaded on the mound and at the plate.

Sterling Waite

Saturday @ The Rookery

This is an interesting dude, at least from the outside looking in. He grew up in Saudi Arabia, graduated magna cum laude from Manhattan College and headed a Bronx-based act, Sterling Waite and the Bedouin Band, that was profiled on MTVu.com. But where’s he from? Here, and he’s bringing his funky folk-rock swagger to the Rookery, 12-string acoustic, stomp box and all.

*** end quote ***


*** begin quote ***

Alternative Rock Trio based out of Bronx, New York City, The Bedouin Band releases a performance that is unique, yet reminiscent of 90’s alt rock. Known for their high energy live shows, this trio delivers a performance that is not to be missed!


Formed in the Fall of 2004 at Manhattan College, hailing from Long Island, New Jersey, and Saudi Arabia; Sterling, Alex and Dan met during their freshman year at college. Sterlings impressive singing and songwriting skills meshed perfectly with the live performance experience that Dan and Alex had from past music groups. Now almost four years later, the group can be seen playing in Bronx pubs, popular NYC Venues, and even Bars along the Coast of Long Island and New Jersey.

LATEST NEWS, NBA / MAR 23, 2011 / 2:00 PM

If you’re a 6-0, 180-pound, Wall Street intern, having pro dreams to play in the NBA may not seem like the most realistic of goals. Just don’t tell that to Brian Kortovich. Having got his start on the hard-court as a youngster in Cleveland, Ohio, Brian quickly rose the ranks to become one of the best young talents in the city.

{Extraneous Deleted}

After his sophomore year at Cuyahoga, he transferred to Division I Manhattan College, choosing them over the likes of Cleveland State, Delaware State and Auburn. On a full scholarship and expectations at their highest, Brian suffered a bout of injuries that kept him from progressing as anticipated.

{Extraneous Deleted}

All his hard work and networking paid off when Brian landed his first pro gig in Kuwait. Subsequent to that he’s found himself playing pro ball all over the world, landing on rosters in Italy, France, Israel, the Dominican Republic and eventually getting drafted into the D-League.

{Extraneous Deleted}

The Knicks and Nets both went in different directions, but Kortovich gained the invaluable exposure needed to help him get to that next level. Though not always the fastest or strongest player out there, he has a work ethic that is boundless, a drive that is unparalleled… and did I mention he can shoot the lights out? He’s just a regular guy waiting, make that working, for that next big break.

BRENTWOOD — Sister of St. Joseph Theresa Elizabeth Molphy, 92, died March 4, in the 72nd year of her religious life.

Her first teaching assignment was at Our Lady of Victory in Floral Park (1942-43). In the Brooklyn Diocese, she taught at St. Francis of Assisi (1943-47); Immaculate Heart of Mary (1947-51); Queen of All Saints (1951-56); The Mary Louis Academy (1956-62); Bishop Kearney Diocesan H.S.

From 1973 to 1976 she was superior at Bishop Kearney Convent, and also taught in the language resource center there, work that she continued until 1981 when she retired to Maria Regina Residence here, where she assisted the administrative staff.

She earned a bachelor’s degree in French from Manhattan College and a master’s degree from St. John’s University.

Sister Theresa is survived by her sister, Sister of St. Joseph Theresa Molphy, and several nieces and nephews. Her Mass of Christian Burial was offered in Maria Regina Chapel March 7, followed by burial in Calvary Cemetery here.

ENDNOTE: Stock up some real coins to bribe your way out of the mess


Lead Your Family Out or Stay?, by Richard G.
By James Wesley, Rawles on March 19, 2011 11:08 PM

*** begin quote ***

Life on the farm went on for a few more years, information was scarce, no communication, many rumors. Lithuanian silver coinage disappeared, replaced by paper occupation money. No one could be trusted, farms were being raided for food, and many “bad things” occurred. Then suddenly the Germans were back, in full retreat. By fall of 1944 they followed the retreating Germans out on a horse and carriage, gold coinage got them across the many river bridges,(a stash was left behind-buried under their wooden kitchen floor)until the horse and cart was confiscated, then only what bags they could carry, then those to were gone and by the time they reached Dresden (bad timing), February 1945, they only had the clothes on there back. Dresden was bombed to a pile of rubble. They somehow survived Dresden, but were forced into work camps. When the war was finally over, they found themselves in a refugee camp near Munich. Stanislaus, my grandfather, had one last ‘trade’ item left, a gold pocket watch.

*** end quote ***

[JR: Before any one screams: "This is America; it can't happen here." Remember the slaughter of the American Indians, Jim Crow racism, and the Japanese American Internment. (Never mind overseas: the Dresden bombing, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.) "That's the old America; this is the new enlightened America. We elected a black President for Heaven's sake." American citizens in Gitmo and taken in "Rendition", the Patriot Act renewed, and even nutty old Bernard von NotHaus convicted. http://www.liberty4free.com/Liberty%20Dollar%20Trial.htm (Do I have to cite all the overseas mischief "we" are into?) Yeah, you won't find that last story covered in the lame street media. The old coot thought he could start a competing currency here in the USA. Convicted him of "counterfeiting", as if anyone would confuse the Federal Reserve Bank slugs in your pocket, that imitate honest money, with his 1 ounce silver round "coins", "medallions", or whatever you'd like to call them. He got on the FRB and Treasury's radar when he produced a 1 ounce "Ron Paul 2008" copper round and was selling them at cost with the profits going to the campaign. He sold a lot of them. Clearly that made him a huge threat to the political and financial elite. SO they got some rubes in NC to "follow the law". Ever notice how we, Mundanes, have to "follow the law", but the political and financial elite always seem to get a "free pass". It'll take a revolution to change things; revolutions don't always work out so good for us little guys. But they are down right murder on the aristocracy. When it happens, I bet you can still bribe your way out with one of Bernard von NotHaus' "Liberty Dollars". Wont work with a FRB slug! Argh! Yeah, I know, my tin foil hat is on too tight.]
