The Unkindest Cut Of All

The first time I saw an uncircumcised penis was on the cover of John and Yoko’s album “Two Virgins.” I thought John had forgotten to take off his condom.  In the 1950’s, almost all kids in America got circumcised – especially the boys. All the guys on my block got one as soon as they were born and some of them couldn’t walk for a year!

People against circumcision have changed America’s minds. Today, only one in three baby boys is circumcised.  One of the most militant groups opposed is “Mothers Against Circumcision.” “Intact America” is another. They believe the operation is only supported by medical myths, religious traditions, is extremely painful, and a violation of human rights (Yikes!)

I’ve read the pros and cons about circumcision and I decided it’s not right for me.  Unfortunately, my parents made the opposite decision years ago and there’s no going back on it.  There are no accepted medical procedures to reattach foreskins – even if you could find one in the right size and color.

As A Person, He Bombed

George P. Metesky, better known as the “Mad Bomber,” terrorized New York City for 16 years in the 1940s and ’50s. He planted 33 bombs of which 22 exploded and injured 15 people. 

No victims died but the city was on edge for years because no one knew where he would strike next. George planted bombs in Radio City Music Hall, subways, public restrooms, Grand Central Station, the New York Public Library, and the RCA Building. His favorite venue was movie theaters.

Metesky was angry (to say the least) because he was injured as an employee at Con Ed and said they didn’t treat him fairly.  He swamped newspapers and police stations with taunting letters and, patriotically, stopped bombing for the duration of WW II!


In 1957,  “Public Enemy Number One,” George Metesky, was finally arrested and immediately confessed to 16 years of bombing. It wasn’t difficult to determine that he was  “hopelessly and incurably mentally ill,” and found incompetent to stand trial.

After serving 2/3 of his 25-year sentence in a mental institution, George was released. He quietly lived in his own home until he died 20-years later at the age of 90.
