Wednesday night, at 7pm, I will be interviewed by the Host of Person, Place, Thing, Randy Cohen (the former New York Times ethicist) on, well a particular person, place, and thing that have had a major impact on my life. I won’t spoil the experience by giving you the answers now, so if you are interested and available, come to the New York Society for Ethical Culture, 2 W 64th St. for what will likely be an entertaining live show.
About Randy: Randy Cohen’s first professional work was writing humor pieces, essays and stories for newspapers and magazines (The New Yorker, Harpers, the Atlantic, Young Love Comics). His first television work was writing for Late Night with David Letterman for which he won three Emmy awards. His fourth Emmy was for his work on Michael Moore’s TV Nation. He received a fifth Emmy as a result of a clerical error, and he kept it. For twelve years he wrote “The Ethicist,” a weekly column for the The New York Times Magazine. His most recent book (an optimistic formulation) is Be Good: How to Navigate the Ethics of Everything.
