  1. I just read your Salon piece on divorce-wear and left you a comment on your other blog, then realized this one appears to be your current blog. Anyway, just wanted to say that I liked your Salon piece and I’m glad you got your garment groove back. You look pretty snazzy in your photo.

  2. Public schools should be replaced with private schools and learning centers. There’s nothing holy about government-run schools.

  3. How will poor children go to school Sharon Kass?

    Some things are public goods, best treated that way……as public functions. Public education has been our great equalizer.

  4. If you wrote the article in the NYPost (Are we headed for another housing collapse?) and did so in part as a favor or other one sided deed for someone, I hope you would disclose that. The headline is one big click-bait and once a writer engages in that, one can only suspect the motivations of the article itself. I am not accusing you or anyone of wrongdoing, I am posting to make you aware that the article seems very suspect to some.

    1. Hi. There was no favor mentioned when I was assigned the story, and I did not write the headline. I understand your concerns, which is why I cited nearly 20 sources for balance. Thanks for reading.

  5. Have you researched the affect of Residential Real Estate Investment Corporations upon the housing market. Where residential units are purchased by this type of entity, converted into rental housing, and then used as managed income producing collateral for investors, especially foreign investors trying to park money in America. The purpose being, to own something that will have some worth in the future, if not profit.

    1. Hi, just read your article about your Texas experience and divorce. While I certainly don’t know what your marriage was like except what you briefly described, it seems your husband was an ass. I know that wasn’t the theme of your story. I congratulate you on doing the hard work and raising your two beautiful daughters. A northeasterner like yourself living in Texas is similar to say, a Texan living in Manhattan. We are diverse. As you stated, your Texas raised daughters made the most of their upbringing. I hope they marry better than you did and hope one day if you so desire you find a companion that suits your mutual needs.
      Merry Christmas.
      Ron Rose

  6. Read your article “Through the Roof”. Very interesting and well written. Found it humorous that Schlicter in Seattle , with whom you closed your article, found it interesting to zing Trump. Kind of ruined the article. I get his angle. My angle would have been to leave any President out of it. Unless you mention tax relief, regulation relief and the removal of the wet blanket of suffocation laid upon us by the man who remade America: Barack Hussein Obama and a complicit Congress, both Republicans and Democrats, generally scumbags one and all.
    I look forward to reading more of your works in the future. Thanks for reading this!

  7. “Here’s another way Baby Boomers are screwing the rest of its”:
    The headline of your Post article on finances is inaccurate. The reason your peers can’t support themselves is because they majored in Social Justice and Gender Studies and voted for Obama. What you wrote is not journalism; its propaganda.

    1. Hi. I did not write the headline and agree it is extreme. Unfortunately, some papers feel they need to do this to attract readers, due to so much competition. The print version of the story has a different headline. The article itself cites 18 named sources, most of which provide specific data from surveys and/or years of research/study/experience. I stand by the content of the piece. Most other articles on the subject are not as exhaustive. Thanks for reading.

  8. I just read your article ‘I was forced to raise my kids in Texas for 14 years’ in the Post. How strong you were for your beautiful daughters. I will be enjoying you writing from now on. Happy Holidays!
