Trump Local Ties

Suffolk County has not only been the base of one of Donald Trump’s most loyal supporters in Congress, Lee Zeldin, but it’s also been the base of an intensely pro-Trump father-and-daughter combination of billionaire Robert Mercer and Rebekah Mercer. Further, in 2019, Donald Trump Jr. bought a house in Bridgehampton, and there has been discussion in political circles about his seeking to run for public office from Suffolk County. “The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon Behind The Trump Presidency” was the heading of an extensive article about Mr. Mercer in The New Yorker magazine in 2017. Mr. Mercer “has funded an array ... 18 Jan 2021 by Karl Grossman

Ins And Outs

Last week, and maybe yet again, our highest institutions of law are under literal siege.

Trends in Architecture In: We finally have small houses and “glamping” tents to accommodate the occasional gathering or art collection. Also in “container homes,” homes made from shipping containers. Out: We have the large and excessive use of space. Trends in Exercise I love this part of living in Sagg. ... by Marilee Foster

The Bars We Miss The Most

Raise your hand if you’ve heard from officialdom recently, “But what can we do to make sure the bars survive the pandemic?” You haven’t, I’d be willing to bet! And, yet, what would our communities be without our gathering places, our sports-viewing emporiums, our “God-I-need-to-sit-back-and-bang-back-a-cold-one-with-a-few-people-who-get-why-this-is-important” lifelines? I have some bona fides in commenting on this topic, having ranked the best bars on the South Fork for four different publications (talk about being typecast!). It is a role I take seriously. I expect I will go to my grave arguing that bars represent the greatest — because, the truest — reflection ... by Tim Motz
