Welcome to my “DonorsChoose.org” Giving Page. Do you know that there are many public school teachers who pay for their students’ supplies out of their own pockets? It happens all over the country. Public school teachers are challenged by budgetary limitations and need help to provide their students with the educations that every child deserves and the supplies that they need. Please help by donating to DonorsChoose.org or by donating directly to a needy classroom. Thank you. -Neil Siskind

Neil Siskind, Sloan Kettering

For the Children of MSKCC

I’ve created this page to raise funds for research at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and I hope you’ll consider joining the cause and making a donation.

Many of the most important breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment have been brought to light at Memorial Sloan Kettering, and none of that progress would have been possible without support from people like you and me.

As a volunteer at MSKCC, I interacted with patients of all ages. But there is always a special sense of sympathy for the children who are facing the test and struggle of an illness like cancer so early-on in life. For these patients, the environment is everything. The more that can be done to make them feel normal and child-like, the better. The people and facilities around these children are vital to this end. So, in the name of providing the funds needed to offer these children the best environments and care during their treatments, please donate to MSKCC. Thank you.

Picking and Choosing Clients

Just as customers and clients use the Internet to choose products and services, so too can product and service sellers investigate customers and clients. It works both ways.

A hopeful client contacted me last week through my website and requested legal services. I googled the client and saw 2 very disturbing and nasty comments he wrote on review sites about other services and products that he had used.

I refused his request for representation.

I do not deal with mean people. I especially do not deal with people who have no shame about being mean in front of the whole world by way of the Internet. These are the scariest people of all who have no regard for other people’s feelings and who have no care about other people’s opinions of them and how mean and vindictive they can get. These are not the level of people I want for clients- or for friends.

The Neil S. Siskind Nature Preserve is over 7 acres of environmentally-pristine waterfront land in a magnificent setting along New York’s majestic Hudson River. The Preserve includes a variety of species of animal and plant life, and is a precious example of the thoughtful maintenance of New York’s priceless open spaces. The land’s uses are limited to outdoor recreation such as hiking and climbing, and the study of ecology, nature and land use. The Neil S. Siskind Nature Preserve allows for the intelligent contemplation of our valuable natural resources and the most effective ways to maximize them and keep them protected.

A Casino’s Real Jackpot

No statistic is needed for anyone to know that the intake of liquor lowers inhibitions and clouds judgment. We have all had a drink. Everyone knows that gambling, either as an individual event, or as part of a larger addiction, can result in financial losses that destroy lives. We see it all the time. Yet the serving of liquor to people while gambling in casinos is permitted in every state, leading to losses of money by inebriated customers. It should not be allowed. Far more money is lost gambling while intoxicated than while sober.

No other businesses – besides bars and restaurants- are permitted, and designed, to serve clearly inebriated customers, and, moreover, continue to enhance intoxication while selling more and more of a service or product. While laws are passed regulating casinos in a variety of manners, no laws preventing casinos from taking money from slightly intoxicated, buzzed, or even drunk guests (unless they are “visibly” or “obviously” inebriated) have been enacted.

I am advocating for laws in New York and in all 50 states to make it illegal for casinos to serve alcohol to people while they gamble.

So many laws exist to protect people from themselves, and to protect citizens from being “taken” by other people and by businesses, yet casinos continue to be permitted to serve alcohol to gamblers, lowering their inhibitions, increasing their feelings of bravado and strength, and clouding their overall decision-making abilities.

If state lawmakers around the country care for their citizens, they should take stands to enact the legislation needed by people to protect themselves from casino tactics of free drinks in exchange for bigger bets.

JonBenet Ramsey: Let’s Just Think-Through the Physical Impossibility for a Moment

The Ramseys have always maintained that an intruder broke into their home with the intent to kidnap JonBenet, and the would-be kidnapper ended up violently killing her instead of kidnapping her, hitting her in back of her head, strangling her, and possibly molesting her too.

In order for a person to have hit JonBenet in the back of the head, such person, obviously, would have to have been standing behind her. For this to be the case, JonBenet would had to have been sitting upright or standing-up with the killer standing behind her. If the killer took her from her bedroom, as alleged, this positioning would never have happened during the ordeal.

An intruder would never be sitting or standing behind JonBenet under any proposed scenario, and certainly not with enough distance to raise an object and hit her in back of her head.  Any would-be kidnapper, molester, or even determined killer, would have been just inches from JonBenet during an attempted kidnap or molestation, and such person would have been in direct physical contact with JonBenet at all times, holding her hostage, keeping her in his grips. He would not have had enough distance from JonBenet to wind-up and swing at the back of JonBenet’s head. Just try the motion for yourself: Visualize a tiny child below you, who you have taken hostage, as the target of your strike. You would be over her- not behind her. The strike motion would not be possible.

JonBenet was not struck from above her head, she was struck in the back of her head. It was not a downward motion. Any grown man could not have hit her in the area of her head where she was struck without crouching down to the height of a 6 year old, and then creating space between himself and the child, and then swinging from that position. Thus, there are height issues, spacing issues, and point of contact issues that all contradict any adult sized person hitting JonBenet.

Why did JonBenet never scream for help- or ever yell or talk loudly at all? This is even more evidence that an intruder would have to have had direct physical control of her with at least one hand covering her mouth. A wind-up motion with one arm while maintaining control of JonBenet with the other arm would have been impossible- especially to the back of her head. Again, visualize controlling a small conscious child with  your left arm while striking her in back of her head with a sideways swinging motion with your right arm.  Alternatively, if JonBenet was unconscious, she could never have been standing upright in front of an intruder at all in a way that would leave the rear of her head exposed.

Conscious or unconscious, how could an intruder be holding JonBenet in one arm, and hit her crushingly in the rear of her head with the other arm?  That would violate physics. Even if pulled-off, it would require a downward motion, not a level swing at the height of a 6 year old’s head.

There is no scenario under which an intruder could have hit JonBenet in the back of her head with the force that was used in her murder. The physicality of it does not work and the positioning of the players does not work given the alleged kidnapper-victim relationship, especially if JonBenet was unconscious. If she was conscious, there would have been a lot of noise by both the intruder giving her instructions to walk downstairs quietly, and by  JonBenet either calling for her mother or just moving about the house as a child does. Conscious: 1. The intruder would never have been behind JonBenet with enough distance to wind up and hit her in back of the head; and 2. he would not have been in a crouching position necessary to hit a 6 year old in the spot on her head where she was struck; 3. he would have had to have used at least one hand to maintain control over JonBenet’s movements; and 4. a grown man would have done a lot more damage than JonBenet’s skull suffered. Unconscious, in the arms of an intruder, such a sideways strike as the one made to JonBenet’s head would have been completely impossible.

In either case, conscious or unconscious (and, if conscious, regardless of whether an intruder was holding JonBenet or not), a level swing at the height of a 6 year old’s head, hitting the skull with sideways contact, as opposed to a downward motion, would be impossible and impractical for a grown man to have achieved.
