The Jets are 2-0 (yes, the Jets); the Giants and their $60 million dollar man, Eli Manning, are 1-2; the Mets are leading the NL East by 7.5 games (yes, the Mets); and the Yankees are 3 games out of first place behind the Blue Jays, but are four games ahead of the Astros for a shot at the wild card slot in the upcoming Major League Baseball post season. All in all, it's an interesting time to be a New York sports fan.

It's also an interesting week to be a New Yorker, what with the Pope and President both in town and the United Nations General Assembly in session. As luck would have it, I'm traveling on business, visiting our South Florida offices. Yesterday and today are probably two of the best days in recent history not to be in NYC, where I work and live and usually relish being.

Labor Day Means Back to Work

The kids are back to school. My two daughters - Lily (first grade) and Kate (pre-K) - returned to their friends and their familiar building, and my youngest son, Max, started nursery in the same building. It's always bittersweet to send them off, since it's an acknowledgment that they are growing up and, inevitably, growing more independent. They are engaging with the world around them and developing relationships with people outside the home for the first time.

I'm sure that's what Ahmed Mohamed's parents were thinking every time their 14-year-old son fixed whatever had broken down - the family car, his father's
phone, the electricity, his computer. They must have beamed with pride at their ninth grader, who loves to build things using technology and aims to
go to college at M.I.T. Unfortunately for the family, Ahmed's technology passion got him into big trouble on Monday, when one of his teachers at MacArthur
High School in Irving, Texas, mistook his home-made science project for a bomb and alerted the authorities. Next thing he knew, Ahmed and his clock
were in police custody, until the mess could be straightened out.

Labor Day Means Back to Work

Today is 9-11. And before I go any further with this first post-Labor Day column, I must pay tribute to those who perished on the worst day in our nation's history and those first responders who voluntarily put themselves in the way of unimaginable harm to try and save them. On behalf of everyone at Marcum, I would like to express our solidarity with the 9-11 families and our thanks to the police officers, fire fighters and volunteers who gave everything to help our country in its greatest moment of need. You are all American heroes in the truest sense of the word, and America will never forget you.

Labor Day has come and gone, and that means it's back to my weekly connection with all of you. I missed it over the summer, along with the emails and notes I enjoy receiving from many of you. What a great summer this was, especially for those of us who live in the Northeast! The summer of 2015 will most likely go down in the annals as one of the best ever, weather-wise that is. Although June started out pretty wet, it wouldn't take a whole hand to count the number of rainy days we had for the rest of the summer, and if memory serves me correctly, the few we did have had the good grace not to dampen any weekends.
