Stony Brook siblings raises thousands for children’s hospital BY RITA J. EGAN RITA@TBRNEWSPAPERS.COM Thirteen-year-old Joseph and 17-year-old Maddie Mastriano turned lemons into lemonade and then turned a lemonade stand into an annual fundraising event that has raised thousands for Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand event was held on the grounds of R.C. Murphy Junior High School in Stony Brook Aug. 2. What started as a simple lemonade stand in front of the Mastrianos’ home one hot day five years ago has turned into a summer event that draws hundreds from the local community to show their support. Maddie said when she and her brother set up their first lemonade stand, neighborhood children helped them out. They sold lemonade for 50 cents, and at the end of the day, they weren’t sure how to split the few dollars they made amongst 16 kids. Their mother suggested giving the money to a charity, and they decided to donate the money to the children’s hospital since it was in the area. Through the years, the lemonade stand, formerly known as the S-Section Kids Lemonade Stand, began to draw more customers when neighbors discovered through word of mouth that the Mastrianos were donating the money. After serving nearly 500 customers last summer, the family approached the Three

Village school district this year to see if the annual event could be held at one of the school’s properties, and the district agreed. While their first lemonade stand enlisted the help of various neighborhood children, this year’s event included more than 100 volunteers from the school district. “It’s amazing to know that all those people want to help out with this cause,” Maddie said. Among the volunteers were the siblings’ cousins Sierra Edwards, 14, Savanna Edwards, 11, and Zoie Mastriano, 11. The girls were helping out at the T-shirt table, and they all said they were amazed at what their relatives had accomplished. “I don’t know any young kids who have done something like this before,” Zoie said. At press time, the Mastriano siblings raised more than $19,000 towards their 2017 goal of $20,000. In addition to local residents attending their Aug. 2 event, donations were accepted on their website, and the siblings solicited the help of sponsors. Maddie said they noticed various fundraisers that partnered with companies so she and her brother decided to approach local businesses. Maddie said it feels good to give back. It’s something she and her brother have learned from her parents who she said are always helping out wherever they can and have been a good influence. While the event has turned into more than

selling lemonade, with corporate sponsors, the Setauket Fire Department on hand giving demonstrations, and the Ward Melville alumni band SWIM performing, the siblings said they enjoy donating their time. Maddie said they think of the children in the hospital who don’t have the chance to enjoy their summer vacation like they do. “This is our way of giving back,” Maddie said. “We give them one day of ours to possibly give them summers in the future.” The Mastrianos estimated that 400 people stopped by throughout the day including Brookhaven Supervisor Ed Romaine and Town Clerk Donna Lent, presenting them with a proclamation; celebrity chef Barrett Beyer of Hell’s Kitchen, making gourmet lemonade; Mr. Met, greeting guests; and Stony Brook University men’s basketball and women’s soccer teams. Three Village Central School District Superintendent Cheryl Pedisich and board Trustee Inger Germano also stopped by. County Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket), who grew up in the Three Village school district, has attended the event for the last few years. “It has been exciting to see it grow and evolve, from block to neighborhood to community event in such a short time,” Hahn said in an email. “This annual event highlights the generosity of spirit within the Three Village community and the compassion of its organiz-

ers and volunteers. It is reaffirming to see children and teenagers work so enthusiastically, and with such empathy, to try and ease the suffering of others.” Joan Alpers, director of Child Life Services at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital, attended the event and delivered a short speech. She said the funds the children raised will go towards programs such as horticulture therapy, art therapy and music therapy for children plus relaxation sessions for stressed parents. Alpers said she is amazed by Joseph and Maddie’s work and the community’s support of the children. “I just think it’s really phenomenal that kids did this one year but then had the resources to do it again and to grow it each year,” Alpers said. “That takes skill, dedication and a special human spirit for a young person.” Maddie and Joseph’s father Joseph Mastriano, who was volunteering at the event, said he is proud of his children. “It teaches them lessons they don’t necessarily learn in school,” the father said. “They went out on their own and solicited different businesses. I think it’s a good experience for them all around.” Next year’s lemonade stand is scheduled for Aug. 8, 2018 at R.C. Murphy Junior High School.

Second in a two-part series. In mid-1775, while British forces, headquartered in Boston, were facing General George Washington and the Continental Army for the first time, Patriot regiments on Long Island were gearing up to defend the island from Great Britain’s large, well-trained army. Colonel Josiah Smith’s Brookhaven Regiment of 12 companies included Captain Selah Strong’s 7th Company with First Lieutenant Caleb Brewster, seven additional officers and 59 nonrated soldiers. In the spring of 1776, after forcing the British Army to abandon Boston, Washington moved his army to New York City. The British army and naval forces followed soon after and entered New York Harbor at the end of June with 40 warships, supply ships and troop ships with more than 7,000 British and Hessian soldiers. Washington split his army, placing half on Long Island at Brooklyn Heights as he did not know if the British intended to attack Manhattan or Long Island. By the end of August, when they attacked Washington’s Continental Army on Long Island, British forces had swelled to more than 20,000 troops. It was to be the largest battle of the Revolutionary War and a major defeat for Washington who lost more than a thousand troops killed or captured. In early August Smith’s regiment was ordered to join the Continental Army defending Long Island. The regiment, including Strong’s 7th Company marched west to General Nathanael Greene’s camp in Flatbush. In his diary, during the battle, Smith wrote, “August ye 27 we wors alarmed aboute 2 in the morning, and we had many scurmishes and thay atemted to forse our Lines & they kild 1 of my men & we Suppose that we kild a number of them & we Drove them Back & Laie in the trenches all nite.” It rained all day and night on Aug. 28 and Smith noted, “... thar wors a continual fire kep up between us and the Regulars (British)...” The next day, with continuous rain, thunder and lightning they crossed onto Manhattan. Smith with some members of the regiment marched into Connecticut and finally back onto Long Island at Smithtown. At this point the officers and soldiers with Smith dispersed and went home, many moving their families to Connecticut and the rest, including Strong staying on Long Island. Strong could easily have moved to Connecticut as he owned land in Middletown, but he stayed and even attended, as a trustee, meetings of the Brookhaven

town board. Strong was one of many Long Islanders to own property in Middletown or to move there as refugees. One refugee who owned property and spent time in Middletown was William Floyd of Mastic, Long Island’s signer of the Declaration of Independence. Floyd’s first wife died in 1781. Three years later he married Joanna Strong, Strong’s paternal first cousin. Joanna’s brother Benajah served as a captain in Colonel William Floyd’s regiment in 1776 and participated in Benjamin Tallmadge’s successful raid on Fort St. George in Mastic in 1780. After his imprisonment in New York City in 1778 and his subsequent release, Strong became a refugee in Connecticut, probably based in Middletown. In 1780, following his election as president of the Brookhaven town trustees, a position equal to today’s town supervisor, Strong returned to Long Island, despite the continued presence of British and Loyalist troops, and joined his wife on Little Neck, her family’s ancestral home in Setauket (now Strong’s Neck). Living on Little Neck with British forces still in control of Long Island, Strong had to be aware of the dangers. Kate Wheeler Strong wrote that, during this period her great-great-grandfather, Strong, saved the life of a British officer. “Not that he was fond of the British, but he had a good reason for saving this man’s life. While walking one day with Caleb Brewster ... on the neck on which I now live, they saw a British officer on the shore below. Brewster aimed his gun, but my ancestor stopped him, explaining that while Caleb could flee in his boat, he himself lived here and would have to bear the brunt of the shooting. So Brewster lowered his gun, and the British officer passed on safely ...” Strong wrote a will in 1775, which he later voided, when the war was becoming more certain and he needed to put something, at least temporarily on paper. Kate Strong wrote, “He evidently thought in the event of his death it would not be safe for his wife and children to remain there for he ordered all his land to be sold including tracts on the south side of the island. His wife was to have any furniture she desired ...” His wife was made executrix, and with the help of three other executors, she was to manage the estate until their eldest son Thomas became 21. The names of his executors were Benjamin Havens, Phillips Roe and Samuel Thompson. The historic Terrill-Havens-Terry-Ketcham Inn during the Revolutionary War

Strong could easily have moved to Connecticut as he owned land in Middletown, but he stayed and even attended, as a trustee, meetings of the Brookhaven town board.

LIM awarded federal grant for new gallery By Rita J. Egan Rita@tBRnEwspapERs.com

children sit in one of the carriages at the Long island museum, above, during a school program. they want to know what it’s like to ride in a carriage,” Watson said. The director said the planning period will take approximately a year and the gallery will be located on the lower level in a 2,500 square foot space. While they have held preliminary meetings with the architecture company Lee H. Skolnick Architecture + Design Partnership, future meetings will include historians, curators, and they will also approach the plans from the educational and public access angles. “We don’t know what’s possible yet and that’s what we want to discuss [in] the next nine months to a year,” Watson said. Joshua Ruff, director of collections and chief curator, will be part of the planning process and said he was pleased when he heard the news about the grant. “I think it’s a terrific thing,” he said. “NEH has been very instrumental in the process to renovate the carriage museum.” The curator said the planning committee will be taking a long, meticulous look at the proposed plans for the gallery that he said will be rich in content. He said a simulation ride will give museum guests the opportunity to choose the type of horse, carriage and ride they would like to experience and feels it will add a new dimension to the museum. “I think it will help us to connect with a new, larger audience,” Ruff said. Watson and Ruff said the gallery will incorporate displays to show the direct correlation between cars and carriages, too. “[A carriage] was the car before there were cars,” Watson said. “Everybody used it for industry, for everyday life, to get to one place to another. It was like a car. So we want to make that connection through a variety of activities.” For more information about The Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages, visit www.longislandmuseum.org.

The planning process for a new gallery is about to begin at The Long Island Museum of American Art, History and Carriages in Stony Brook thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. U.S. Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-Shirley) announced Aug. 3 the museum was awarded $40,000 through NEH’s competitive grant program. The new interactive gallery will be called “A World Before Cars” and plans include developing a simulation ride where visitors can experience how it felt to ride in a carriage. Zeldin thanked the NEH for recognizing the museum’s contributions of providing a source of art, history and culture to the community. “Our local history and culture is so important to us here on Long Island, and The Long Island Museum has continued to do amazing work in preserving this great heritage,” Zeldin said in an email. “The Long Island Museum presented a strong application for this grant when compared with other applicants, and as such were able to get through the rigorous NEH selection process.” The NEH is an independent federal agency that was established in 1965 and provides grant funding for museums, archives and libraries to promote excellence in the humanities in the country. Zeldin was among the congressmen who voted to fund the agency at $149.8 million this year, which was an increase of $1.9 million from 2016. Funding organizations such as this is important to Zeldin. “Our museums, libraries, art galleries, archives, and other related venues serve an incredibly important purpose, and it is imperative that they remain supported through initiatives like these,” the congressman said. “Long Island has a unique and cherished history unlike any other, and securing grants like this for our local institutions is integral in preserving our distinct heritage and attracting visitors to help our local tourism economy.” Neil Watson, executive director of The Long Island Museum, said in a phone interview he feels the future gallery is the missing element at the museum. The director said they submitted a proposal in 2016, and while they weren’t awarded a grant last year, they were able to rework and resubmit the proposal for 2017. He said the grant was awarded for the planning necessary to construct the gallery, and the museum will apply for another grant through the NEH to implement the plans. Additional funds will be raised to supplement both grants. Watson said the proposal was one that needed time to be honed as the new gallery will incorporate history, interactive features and is object-driven. The director said the concept for interactive elements was a result of requests from visitors to the museum, which features carriages from various eras. “What visitors have told us often … is

Continued from page A4 was the home and tavern of Benjamin Havens, a spy for the Culper Spy Ring. He married Abigail Strong of Setauket, sister of Strong and related to Abraham Woodhull through their mother, Suzanna Thompson, sister of Jonathan Thompson and aunt of Samuel Thompson. Abigail’s sister Submit married Phillips Roe of Port Jefferson. In April, 1776, both Benjamin Havens and Abraham Woodhull were members of the Committee of Safety, the purpose of which was to keep an eye on Tories in the town. Other members included William Smith (Manor of St. George, Mastic), William Floyd (signer of the Declaration of Independence), Brigadier General Nathaniel Woodhull (Floyd’s brother-in-law and second cousin of Abraham Woodhull), Strong (husband of Anna Smith Strong and brother-in-law of Benjamin Havens), Phillips Roe (Abigail

Haven’s brother-in-law) and Phillip’s brother Nathaniel. In June, 1779, Abraham Woodhull, writing as Samuel Culper, reported that all but two mills in Suffolk County served the needs of the British. Benjamin Havens operated one of those two mills. The same month Rivington’s Royal Gazette reported on a plundering party feast at the house of Benjamin Havens at Moriches that included three Long Island refugees, William Phillips, Benajah Strong, and Caleb Brewster. These extended family members and Brookhaven town leaders were also Patriot spies. The Culper Spy Ring was more than just five names on Benjamin Tallmadge’s code list, it was a large number of Patriots willing to risk their lives to rid Long Island and America from Great Britain’s continuing presence.

Village Chamber of commerce hosts 18th annual barbecue A little rain didn’t stop families from enjoying an evening at the beach Aug. 2 when the Three Village Chamber of Commerce hosted its family barbecue. This was the 18th annual summer event at West Meadow Beach for the chamber. Vice president Charles Lefkowitz said while it rained for a short period, attendees weathered the storm by spending time under the

beach’s pavilion or umbrellas. “The rain made it fun and interesting, and thanks to the great volunteers we have, and David Prestia from Bagel Express, we were able to get several hundred through the food line,” he said. “It was a very successful event.” Chamber president Andrew Polan said he estimated 400 people were in attendance, and added the number of families participating in the event has grown over the years. Polan said while the organization doesn’t advertise as much as it did in the past, many still come, looking forward to the raffles and camaraderie at the beach. “It’s nice to see after 18 years it’s as much of a hit with the community as it’s always been,” Polan said. Lefkowitz said Assemblyman Steve Englebright (D-Setauket) and Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn (D-Setauket) were among the local residents who attended. “This is something that the local community looks forward to every year, and I’ve been involved in it since its inception,” Lefkowitz said. “I’m really proud that the chamber can deliver such an event to give back to the community.” David Woods, the chamber’s former executive director, recently retired, and Lefkowitz said the board banded together to organize this year’s barbecue. He said their work together on the event has left a great impression on him. “The true highlight was how my fellow

The Three Village Chamber of Commerce’s mission is to provide local professionals and business owners the opportunity to grow professionally through community events. The organization is planning its next event — Disco Night at The Old Field Club — Oct. 19. For more information visit www.3vchamber.com.

He’s a great kid.” Bill Mackedon said he and his son practiced on his short game for the first two years as the young golfer’s body changed month to month, before adding to his repertoire. “The initial training and development was to make him an outstanding player around the greens,” the father said. “Then we worked on his full swing and training him to play at the highest level he could possibly play at.” The head pro said his son’s determination never wavered. “He stayed within the Mackedon realm when it comes to instruction, but he’s a student of the game,” he said. “He studies the swing — he does what he needs to do. In my opinion, he out trains and outthinks most athletes on the golf course and I think that’s why he’s been so successful.” He learned from not only his father, who won numerous PGA section events and three player of the year awards while still holding three course records, but also from his grandfather, a head professional for more than 35 years. Galletta said he sees the work put in, as his athlete came away with a one-hole playoff win for the Connecticut Cup Championship in October — just a month into his college career. “He has a natural talent and that ability to make it look easy,” he said. “Besides his playing record, I was really impressed with the length he can hit the ball, even in high school. He’s committed to the team and wants the team to win just as much, if not more than he’d like to see himself win.” His achievements have helped him proudly continue his family’s legacy.

“My wife Michele and I are very excited of this segue into possibly playing beyond college golf,” the college coach said. “I think it’s the beginning of a very bright future for Gerry.” At the Riviera Country Club, he will be competing in the USGA championship won by the likes of Bobby Jones, Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods. “I just hope Gerry enjoys the experience out there,” Galletta said. “Even people who are just part-time golfers, or even those who don’t know Bill or Gerry, should rally around him and be proud of that fact that someone is doing well enough at that age to compete on a national level. It’s a top-notch professional championship setup, and having competed in it myself I know it’s a different feeling than anything else he’s ever competed in. I hope he takes it all in and if he puts his head to the fact that he can do well, besides just thinking about the fantastic achievement of qualifying, I think big things are coming his way.”

Replying to an unending saga

Photo from Three Village Kids Lemonade Stand

A lemonade stand created by Stony Brook teens raised almost $20,000 for charity prior to and during an annual event last week.

Giving is great As the summer winds down and people across the North Shore prepare to return to their regular school year routines, it could be very easy to get selfish — selfish with time in an attempt to squeeze the last bit of freedom out of August. But that’s far from the case for several different groups of people undertaking incredible philanthropic efforts right in our own backyard. Joseph and Maddie Mastriano, 13 and 17 years old, respectively, took “squeezing” literally. The siblings, for a fifth consecutive summer, held a fundraising lemonade stand in Stony Brook, this time raising nearly $20,000 to be donated to Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. The event was a huge hit this year and garnered a lot of attention, so we hope it continues to grow in years to come. Joey Zangrillo, a Port Jefferson resident and business owner, recently returned home from a trip to Kenya, where he traveled for the purpose of assisting in the expansion of a much-needed orphanage and the construction of a well. The story will be told in detail in next week’s edition of The Port Times Record. Jack Soldano, a 12-year-old from Miller Place, announced in July he would be selling his four-figure comic book collection at Heritage Park in Mount Sinai this month to raise money for the Miller PlaceMount Sinai Historical Society’s efforts to save a historic house. Miller Place resident Cody Carey, along with 29 members of his fraternity, is wrapping up a cross-country bike trip, which is held annually to raise money for people with physical and mental disabilities. Kimberly Williams, a science teacher in the Smithtown school district, recently joined an effort to send old sports uniforms to Uganda to be reused by kids in need. In Huntington this month, local officials, community leaders, businesses and organizations worked together to help raise food donations for Huntington kids. The end of summer malaise has not infected any of these admirable North Shore residents, and likely there are many others. We commend them for their incredibly selfless acts and hope they serve as an example for others. If you missed any of these stories, we encourage you to seek them out on our website, www.tbrnewsmedia.com, and if you know anyone donating their time with the purpose of bettering their community, we’d love to hear about it.

Michael Meltzer’s reply in the Aug. 3 edition of The Village Times Herald (“Response to Wishnia’s diatribe”) calls my July 27 answer (“A string of alliterative insults”) to his first letter (“Stop the rioting and subterfuge,” July 20) a diatribe. I’ll leave that to readers. Meltzer’s rambling first letter was filled with real, not perceived, insults and false statements about peaceful anti-Trump protesters in Port Jefferson and, implicitly, throughout the United States, claiming that they are both selfdeluding and vicious: “Then stop the rioting, fighting language and subterfuge.” There has been no rioting, although Meltzer tries to tie the protesters, perhaps by osmosis, to the anarchist riots at the G20 in Germany. And I can’t see how plain, if hostile, speaking about Trump is subterfuge. Meltzer decries “marching, marching, marching” as futile, yet

one of the left’s few victories was just achieved by continued, mass demonstrations — the right of the people peaceably to assemble — which encouraged all Senate Democrats to stand together, and three brave Republicans to defy their leadership and defeat the last, awful Trump-McConnell “health” bill. Contrast that with the hundreds of armed Oath Keepers who menaced FBI and state agents trying to get Cliven Bundy to obey the law and pay rent for using U.S. land in Nevada. Meltzer’s essential point predicts an apocalypse, somewhat vaguely in the first letter and clearly in the second: There is an “existential threat to Europe and the West from Islamic hordes” (apparently, at least a hundred million embedded terrorists). Do-gooders in the U.S., not to mention most Americans, western Europeans and their political leaders (Macron, Merkel, May,

etc.) cannot, or will not, see this. Only Meltzer, President Trump and the marginalized far right in western Europe (Le Pen in France, Wilders in Netherlands, etc.) and some eastern governments (notably Orbán in Hungary) have the foresight and courage to recognize and fight this menace that seriously threatens the very existence of western civilization. Balderdash. As an aside, since he brings it up to demonstrate the ignorance of a cloistered academic, the New York State SAFE Act of 2013 defines “assault weapons” to include semi-automatic weapons with any one of many “military features” and bans their possession. (Older owners are grandfathered in if they register the weapons.) The NRA howled in the courts but lost appeals in 2013 and 2015.

Consider a few of Trump’s accomplishments Instead of focusing on irrelevant, insignificant or imaginary transgressions that may or may not have been perpetrated by President Trump, as described in The Village Times Herald Aug. 3 letter (“Time to take our country back,” from Stephanie J. Werner), it would be enormously more enlightening to consider a few of his actual accomplishments. He has appointed Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. Justice Gorsuch is a constitutional originalist, and is unlikely to think of himself as a legislator empowered to promote a particular social agenda. In the foreseeable future, it is not inconceivable that Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Anthony Kennedy may seek greener pastures, and the president may have other opportunities to help preserve the Constitution, which he will surely do. In the field of environmentalism, Trump has replaced global warming hysteria with common sense, spearheaded by his appointment of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency. Other positive steps taken by the president include withdrawing the United States

from the Paris climate agreement, the revival of the Keystone XL pipeline, the lifting of Obama regulations designed to strangle the coal industry and the repeal of numerous rules enacted by the previous administration designed to hamper the development of our oil resources. And, perhaps most importantly, the president and Pruitt have drawn attention to the fact that, while carbon dioxide emissions may have a miniscule, if barely measurable, effect on global warming, or climate change, it is by no means clear that this effect will result in a serious problem, or that we will be better off by spending trillions of dollars attempting to micromanage it. President Trump’s clearly stated promise to build the border wall, for which Mexico will pay, has resulted in dramatic decreases in the influx of illegal aliens. He has reaffirmed our commitment to legal immigrants, supporting a merit-based system that would give preference to those who have marketable skills and speak English. As a result of these and numerous other measures, unemployment has dropped since Trump’s election to 4.4 percent,

its lowest level since May of 2007. The S&P 500 has risen nearly 12 percent. The consumer confidence index is more than 125, its highest level since 2000. By virtually any measure, the economy is improving. President Trump is fulfilling his pledge to make America great again. In her fanciful dissertation, Werner likened President Trump to the wizard in “The Wizard of Oz,” breathlessly anticipating his departure from Washington in a big balloon. She unfortunately neglected to mention Hillary Clinton, who would be eminently qualified to play a key role in the remake of this great movie, should that occur. Perhaps surprisingly, this role would not be that of the Wicked Witch of the West, despite Hillary’s masterful demonstrations of her maniacal cackle. Instead, Hillary would play the part of Dorothy, wearing her cute little farm dress and white apron. And the highlight of the movie would be Hillary singing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” with a final line that could not be more perfect: “Why, oh why, can’t I?” Just the thought brings tears to my eyes.

OpiniOn Who’s on first in Trump’s Washington ballgame

I

t’s become an Abbott and Costello comedy routine, except in the nation’s capital. Let’s take a look: Trump: “Strange as it may seen, they give ball players nowadays very peculiar names.” Costello: “Funny names?” Trump: “Nicknames, nicknames. Now, on the Washington team, we have who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know is on third.” Costello: “That’s what I want to By Daniel Dunaief find out. I want you to tell me the names of the fellows on the Washington team.” Trump: “I’m telling you. Who’s on first, what’s on second, I don’t know is on third.” Costello: “You know the fellows’ names?” Trump: “Yes.”

D. None of the above

Costello: “Well, who’s playing first?” Trump: “Who was playing first, but I fired him.” Costello: “You fired him? Who did you fire?” Trump: “Yes. I most certainly did. It was time for a new first baseman. We’ve got a better one coming in to play first.” Costello: “Oh yeah? Who is that?” Trump: “No, who was on first.” Costello: “What are you asking me for?” Trump: “I’m not asking you, I’m telling you. Who was on first.” Costello: “I’m asking you, who’s on first?” Trump: “I already told you, not anymore.” Costello: “Not anymore is on first?” Trump: “Yes.” Costello: “You won’t tell me the name of the fellow on first base?” Trump: “Yes, not anymore.” Costello: “OK, so not anymore is playing first?” Trump: “He was, but he just left, too, so now I have no one.” Costello: “You don’t have a first baseman?” Trump: “Yes, I do, no one.” Costello: “How can no one play first?” Trump: “He’s very talented. He’s one

of the best players I’ve ever seen at the position. He’ll win games for us.” Costello: “When you pay the first baseman every month, who gets the money?” Trump: “He did, but no one gets it now.” Costello: “So, you’re not paying anyone?” Trump: “No, we’re paying no one. Sometimes his wife comes down and collects his paycheck.” Costello: “No one’s wife?” Trump: “Yes. After all, the man earns it.” Costello: “No one does?” Trump: “Absolutely.” Costello: “Washington has a good outfield?” Trump: “Oh, it’s great again.” Costello: “The left fielder’s name?” Trump: “Why.” Costello: “I don’t know, I just thought I’d ask.” Trump: “I just thought I’d tell you.” Costello: “Then tell me who’s playing left field?” Trump: “No, who was playing first, but he was fired.” Costello: “Stay out of the infield! The left fielder’s name?”

Trump: “Why.” Costello: “Why?” Trump: “I’m thinking of moving why to center field after he did such a great job in left.” Costello: “Who did a great job in left field?” Trump: “No, who only plays first and he’s not on the team anymore, so I don’t want to talk about him.” Costello: “You got a pitcher.” Trump: “Wouldn’t this be a fine team without a pitcher?” Costello: “Tell me the pitcher’s name.” Trump: “Tomorrow.” Costello: “Why not now?” Trump: “No, why is in left field. He never pitches, but he might play center field.” Costello: “Now when the guy at bat bunts the ball against tomorrow — me being a good catcher — I want to throw the guy out at first base, so I pick up the ball and throw it to no one.” Trump: “Now, that’s the first thing you’ve said right.” Costello: “I don’t even know what I’m talking about.”

The Cold War: It’s déjà vu all over again

T

he hottest real estate in Japan these days is a bomb shelter, with a starting price from $19,000. When I heard that reported on the radio, I was instantly transported back to my first-grade class where, upon a signal, we covered our heads with our coats and slid under our desks. It was the Cold War: Stalin and the Soviets were the enemy, and we had drills to prepare for By Leah S. Dunaief an atomic blast. One day, there were moviemakers at the school, before television became popular, and they recorded us taking cover for the newsreel that preceded the feature film in every movie theater. In fact, there were two feature films in those days, usually referred to as A and B movies, but first the viewers

Between you and me

were treated to the news of the week. I was in the front row of my class, so I could be clearly seen on the screen crouching beneath my desk. But I never saw myself because my parents usually didn’t go to the movies. Neighbors told us that I was front and center. Just as the movie seemed unreal to me, so did the Cold War and the atomic bomb from whose blast my raincoat was supposed to protect me. World War II had ended, and I grew up in the subsequent Cold War generation. I heard people talking about building bomb shelters, but I couldn’t imagine having one since we lived in an apartment in the middle of the city. It did occur to me to wonder where we would find shelter in the event we needed to, and I think I questioned my parents about that once, but they didn’t seem to want to discuss the subject so it never came up again. My schoolmates may have been fearful, but we never talked about the bomb. Then Stalin died, there was eventually detente with the Soviets, a popular novel appeared by Ian Fleming called

“From Russia with Love,” we watched the touring Bolshoi Ballet at the old Metropolitan Opera House, something in my gut unclenched, and no one had atomic bomb drills anymore. I hate the idea that children in Japan are now growing up under the shadow of a nuclear bomb threat. Those in South Korea are surely afraid and, for that matter, now those in Seattle. In fact, fear seems to be rearing its ugly head in the United States, a country ordinarily known for its optimism and “pursuit of happiness.” For example, I would not like to be an immigrant here today and certainly not an illegal one. Those in that category must be living in fear day and night. I have no sympathy of course for illegal immigrants who have committed serious crimes and are therefore most likely to be deported. But the idea that ICE representatives are patrolling the courthouses, looking for illegals, certainly creates an atmosphere of people being hunted. I would also not like to be an employer whose business depended on the seasonal help of immigrants.

Industries like hospitality, restaurants and farming haven’t known if their legal immigrant workers would arrive. Without that extra help, many businesses cannot survive because there are not enough Americans willing to do those low-level jobs. Ditto for those with special needs who require aides at home. On the other side of the ledger, our economic picture seems rosy. The stock market is setting new records almost every day, as corporations are being rewarded for making profits and the prospect of deregulation encourages investment. The unemployment rate is the lowest in some 20 years. Yet there is a great divide between financial and political happiness. Many of the same people happy with the economy are unhappy with the political picture, bemoaning the chaos in Washington, D.C. As we have always done, we will soldier on with our domestic problems. We are doing less well reacting to the foreign challenges, fear prompting us to answer threats with threats.
