In case you didn't grow up in New York, Manhattanhenge — sometimes referred to as the Manhattan Solstice — is a circumstance which occurs twice a year, during which the setting sun aligns with the east–west streets of the main street grid in the borough of Manhattan in New York City.
If the weather cooperates, we'll see some beautiful photos...

I don't know how I feel about the outrage over the 9/11 Memorial Museum's gift shop...
I know that a few weeks after September 11th, 2001, I bought the above dog tag with the name of Steven Weinstein, FDNY, and it hangs from my rear view mirror to this day.
Voices Of September 11th
Is that any different?

Solange Knowles Kicks, Punches, Claws Jay Z In Elevator Video At Met Gala After-party
I saw this trending on the news show that I watch every morning, and, at first I thought, who?
Once I found out who was at the crux of this matter, my first thought was who the eff cares.
Seriously? This is news.
Then I thought how important these celebrities are to our young people and how their behavior impacts them in ways that can't fathom at the moment, but will impact our society in days to come. It's just food for thought.
I don't know... if my sister and my husband broke out into a fight in front of me in an enclosed space, such as an elevator, I think I would've reacted.
In some ways maybe it is news.

Where's the balance?
Go eat your halal meat at home and leave our restaurants alone.
