Regarding the loss of her beloved husband of 33 years, Scibelli writes, “While I was waiting for his death to sink in, I’d sit on the floor of my closet, talking directly to my husband’s shirts and pants.  They were unresponsive, but I knew in my heart that his Dockers missed me very much, too.”  


    Carol's often blogs about her life as a widow and her essays have been published in The New York Times, Newsday, and dozens of other publications for which she has received several awards.  She is a member of the New York Friars Club, an association of comedians and celebrities, where she heads the “Meet Your Fellow Friars” committee and writes for their newsletter, Friar’s Epistle.  She is also a founding member and Director of  Programs for the nonprofit Manhattan Playwrights, Inc.

    The Furiously Fabulous Super Gay Celebration

    in Politics

    Last Friday, [most of] the Supreme Court ruled on the right side of history. Since this country was founded, an entire group of people have been marginalized and disenfranchised. Loved ones were barred from visiting their ill partners in hospitals. Basic tax and social benefits were denied. Appeals fell on deaf ears or were held up in the bureaucracy indefinitely. Today, The Fruit is proud to say that America has taken a giant leap toward equality for all. Friday's 5-4 decision to legalize marriage in all states and territories, did not come without it's share of criticism, however. Opponents decried that five unelected lawyers do not have the authority to decide the will of the American people, while others slammed the Justices for rewriting the Constitution. Some Republican hopefuls [*cough* Huckabee *cough*] even said that the Supreme Court “cannot overrule [g]od” on gay marriage. Many have lambasted the Court's ruling with warnings of [g]od's wrath or the coming persecution of Christians. To those grumbling about marriage equality, The Forbidden Fruit crew has one thing to say to you. Love wins! You lose! Get over it! Call in and tell us how you celebrated the ruling or why you think it was a mistake.

    Mid Year Economic Update

    in Self Help

    A major change in the economy has been unfolding for several years. It is reaching a financial crisis that will no longer be unnoticed by most. It is possible that social chaos could result.


    The Greek and European debt crisis has come to a head, as well as the one in Puerto Rico. The bond market is failing. With interest on bonds so low that some rates are negative, as interest rates now rise to draw investors, the older bonds are falling in value. The stock market may fall with bonds as the ridiculous derivatives market crashes. Very few people have a full time job with benefits and enough pay to meet living expenses and service their debt.


    Inflation has been in gear in needed items like food, health care and utilities. Even though crude oil prices fell earlier this year, they have risen back somewhat, and gasoline prices are close to $3 again. Meanwhile the “petrodollar” is being abandoned in the world oil markets. Will the dollar fall? Will gold and silver skyrocket? What about real estate? Will currencies be reset, perhaps even backed by assets?


    Is this an engineered collapse to set up a world economic governance via trade agreements and international institutions? It is wise to be better prepared for the changes in progress.

    "Common Law Is Just As Good As Marriage" - COCKTAIL CONVERSATIONS on KLJN 107.7

    in Radio

    Common Law is Just as Good as Marriage 
    New Year's Eve was always festive at Antonio's family's house and Cathy typically always had a good time.  This year her little heart was crushed.  She had gone upstairs to the bathroom while the family was sitting around drinking, laughing, eating just having a good ole grand time.


    Antonio's Uncle Buddy asked him when was he going to marry Cathy considering they were together 15 years and had a 14 year old daughter. Antonio responded by saying  "Nall Unc, that will never happen, you must've fell and bumped your head".


    Meanwhile Cathy was walking down the stairs hearing all of this and Antonio finished by saying "we ARE married... by Common Law."


    Cathy turned hot tamale red in the face and was almost in tears because of embarrassment.


     
    On the way home Cathy vented her frustrations to Antonio, stating, "when I moved to Ohio and gave you the down payment for the house, you said you were going to marry me.  Whatever happened to that pipe dream you sold me?


    Antonio responded by saying "we are 42 yrs old, what's the point of getting married now? Is it for the the sake of impressing others? "


    "We're doing okay.  We've built more together than most married couples.  Please don't get caught up in the concept of marriage baby, its all a facade, its false."


    When do you think that its too late to get married? Is Common Law just as good as marriage? Is there any truth to what Antonio said to Cathy? Do Titles really matter more than love?  Call the show (347) 237-5342 and press "1' on your phone to talk about this on the air.


    And now here is The Controversial Counselor, David Glover.

    He’s rarely discussed today, but at one point, Larry Williams seemed poised to become a successor to the hot R&B throne vacated by Little Richard when he gave up rock ‘n’ roll for God, and his songs were covered by a range of better-selling acts that included the Beatles and the He grew up in Oakland, a town then thriving on military-industrial contracts, and fell into music as a teen, eventually starting a band he called the Lemon Drops.

    Stones. Unfortunately, he had a love of fast living almost as large as his musical talent — and it finally caught up with him on Jan. 7, 1980, when his body was in New Orleans in 1935, Williams headed west with his family at a young age, spending some time with relatives in Chicago before joining his parents in the San Francisco Bay Area in 1945. 


    Born 45. He grew up in Oakland, a town then thriving on military-industrial contracts, and fell into music as a teen, eventually starting a band he called the Lemon Drops.  Although the Lemon Drops didn’t last long, Williams had been bitten by the bug, and he decided to pursue a deal with Specialty Records, the New Orleans label where his second cousin, R&B belter Lloyd Price, was already signed.

    The Conversion of a Man Who Hated Christians

    in Spirituality

    Study Text: Acts 9:1-22


    Key Verses: Acts 9:1-4


    And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,


    And desired of him letters to Damascus to the stnagogues, that if he found any of this way whether they were men or women, 


    he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.


    And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:


    And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me ?
