Cosmopolitan Review: Nov. 24 - Nov. 30

OMG! I made a faux pas. In an earlier edition of “The Cosmopolitan Review,” I erroneously mentioned that Nicolette Robinson, star of the off-Broadway musical “Invisible Thread,’ and who plays the role of Jane in the award-winning Showtime series “The Affair,” was the fiancée of Tony award-winning star of the hit Broadway play, “Hamilton,” Leslie Odom Jr., who plays Aaron Burr, when she is in fact, his wife.

Happy days are here again. The kids are back to school. It was a long hot summer—good but hot.

At last, the dog days of August are upon us. Whereas the month of July was hot and humid, August should promise to be sweltering. And I like it just like that. For those still in the city, there are so many ways to keep cool, stepping outside to warm up is not a problem.

April showers bring May flowers. What do the May flowers bring? According to the New York Society for Ethical Culture, they bring truth, justice and the American way.
