Cherished Memories of Another Time, Another Place: Remembering the Dedicated Editor

By Richard Mabey Jr.

 Author’s Note: Please note that I changed the name of the advertising agency. Also, I changed Thomas McAndrews name.

 In January of 1998, I began working in the Editorial Department of Epstein Advertising Agency in Morristown, New Jersey. I was 44 years old and had recently left a long-term job in the Public Relations Department of a large telecommunications corporation. It was a small advertising agency, which was owned and managed by the Epstein family. My boss was an older, Irish gentleman by the name of Thomas McAndrews.


I Remember Dad: Hold Dear in Heart, Respect for One Another

By Richard Mabey Jr.

 My father was such a very hard-working man. Very often, I remember that in my childhood and teen-age years, my dad worked two jobs. The most common scenario is that Dad would work his full-time job as a truck driver, and then moonlight as a dispatcher for the trucking company that he worked for. The term “moonlight” is seldomly heard these days. But, I remember that it was a very common term in the 1950’s and 1960’s. It simply meant to work a full-time job and at the same time work a part-time job.

OPINION: The Media Coaches Democrats, Trashes Republicans

From the right


After the Labor Day weekend, Joe Scarborough sat on the set of “Morning Joe” and told the Democrats that to succeed in the midterms, it was essential that they somehow repeal “40 years of Reaganism” by passing a massive expansion of government disguised as an “infrastructure” package.

“I remember hearing Biden’s speech back in April and was shocked by how sweeping it was for this supposed moderate guy from Delaware,” Scarborough proclaimed.

OPINION: Harris as Veep: Not a Command Performance


Does anyone know that Vice President Kamala Harris canceled plans to campaign for Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom, in a bruising recall election?

Perhaps a telling move, from one Californian to another.

Harris was meant to help the governor in an hour of need. But she’s shaky too and may have little political capital to lend Newsom. Newsom faces voters on Sept. 14 in a blue state where Republicans are on a tear.

This broken plan got lost in the fog of war in Kabul and the epic storm that darkened New Orleans. No reason was given. The rally has not been rescheduled.

Navigating a Dynamic Work Environment with Children

Some are returning to the office full time while others have the flexibility of hybrid work schedules, splitting time between the office and remote work.
