Sermon for whites to wash away ‘Original Sin’ is misguided gospel of anti-racism
In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death in police custody last May, millions of Americans have been asking the question: How do we best fight racism? Books that give a compelling answer have been flying off the shelves. With the possible exception of Ibram X. Kendi, no writer has seen their profile rise more during...

Clint Frazier aiming to ‘hold it down’ for Yankees in left field
Promises to players aren’t made by smart GMs and managers in December. However, it would be naïve to think that, whenever the 2021 season tips off, Clint Frazier won’t be entrusted with the biggest role of his up-and-down big-league career. That would be the 26-year-old right-handed hitter getting a lot of playing time in left...

St. John’s survives roller-coaster performance to nip Boston College
At its best, Mike Anderson’s relentless uptempo style of play is known as “40 minutes of hell.” This was more like a roller coaster. Fortunately for St. John’s, it survived. But not by much. A 20-point second-half lead got trimmed to one in the final minute. Large stretches of strong play nearly went to waste....

Mets tendering Steve Matz would be the right move
For just a moment, forget the Steven Matz who, over five years ago now, enjoyed the best debut in Flushing since the Beatles played Shea Stadium in 1965. Forever, forget the Matz who lost his way, his job and his job security during the brutal, COVID-shortened 2020 season. Instead, look at Matz’s 2016 through 2019...

Democrats’ supermajority in the state Senate is terrible news for NY’s economy
Beware Dems’ new Albany supermajorities As if a second COVID wave weren’t enough, New York’s prospects for economic recovery will face new headwinds — from Albany. When most of a record 1.9 million mail-in ballots were finally counted last week, it was clear the state Senate’s existing 40-member Democratic majority would grow by at least...

Tom Thibodeau hasn’t seen anything like this Knicks task
The first time Tom Thibodeau opened a debut training camp was 10 years ago, and he knew exactly what he would be walking into on Sept. 27, 2010, at the Berto Center in Deerfield, Ill. Waiting for him inside that gymnasium was Derrick Rose, 21, who across the next six months would blossom into the...

Newly-leaked documents reveal how China bungled COVID-19’s early days

Amusement parks may be worst victims of Cuomo’s arbitrary pandemic rules
Even as New York restaurants, gyms, barbershops and bowling alleys got to reopen with various restrictions, amusement parks have been left out in the cold.

Trump’s ‘fraud’ charges run real risk of costing GOP Senate runoffs in Georgia
‘If voters believe the game is rigged, why should they bother playing?’ President Trump and his supporters have reason to be sore about how they’ve been treated. But their anger about the hypocrisy of their opponents and hard feelings about the way Joe Biden won shouldn’t encourage them to give up. That’s the danger of...

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s latest turnaround on school closures seems a plus — but the chaos has left many parents frustrated, furious and downright dizzy. After abruptly closing schools Nov. 19 because the citywide positivity rate hit 3 percent, de Blasio is abandoning that metric. Now, he aims to keep schools open regardless of what...

Biden’s push for compromise on relief bill means Cuomo, de Blasio won’t get bailouts
In a fresh sign that Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio won’t be getting the vast federal bailouts they’ve been hoping for, President-to-be Joe Biden is reportedly pushing congressional Democrats to settle for a smaller relief bill. “Smaller” is still huge: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell supports a $500 billion bill that focuses...
