THE EMPIRE OF ADAM:     HOME  :  ALL COLUMNS

A native of Elkins Park, PA, Adam Kraemer spends way too much of his time repeating "K-R-A-E..." He moved to New York City in 1998 and earned Master's in Journalism at NYU; don't let his writing fool you. He feels he is best known for saying the things no one is thinking, but afterwards wish they had been. He spends his free time wondering where all his free time goes and why he can never come up with a decent kicker for the ends of his articles.

Actually, I have no idea if they say that, but should it become a saying, feel free to attribute it to the Irish. It sounds like their sort of thing.

The reason I bring it up is that I got into a bit of a tiff, albeit a civil tiff, with a friend of mine this past weekend regarding his belief that I'm embarrassingly politically naïve and my belief that his candidates are trying to return this country to the point in time of the robber barons.

Now, to be fair, he's from Texas, and I don't say that to be arch. The atmospheres in which we were brought up are noticeably different, though he's from Austin, which is what I hear passes for liberal there. It's also obviously a bone of contention, as he was fairly adamant about me and my kind moving to T...

RAVES

re: one state, two state, red state, blue state

Bravo. Love to see you write this way.

re: short and sweet

Hilarious and awesome and endearing.

re: constant comment

Nice job!

re: and to think that i heard it on mulberry street

I love N Y too.

re: yo! i got some weight for you to watch

Absolutely one of the best columns you've written. I actually laughed....which I don't do very often. Your sintax and paragraph structure is still a little choppy, but this topic goes well with that.

re: how to lose a girl in one date

Wry, sarcastic and totally dead on.

re: sharp dressed plan

Great job on this column, Adam.

re: behind the times

Very cohesive and timely! Well written. Your tongue-in-cheek is getting much better.

re: wherefore art thou joey jo-jo junior shabadoo?

Love the fun asides and the voice is indelibly YOU.

re: wherefore art thou joey jo-jo junior shabadoo?

so how about "akaliaskraemer"
