FANS:

He’s our superhero
The real Iron Man
But one thing he’s lacking

MUSK:

President Donald Trump's hateful rhetoric toward the free press cannot become the new normal. NYFWA members stand with our fellow reporters. Journalists are not the enemy of the people. They are the people.

And what a spoonful of sugar it is!  Costumes.  Singing.  Dancing.  Pageantry.  Comedy –with an edge (a sharp edge!).  And the best food and drink that Manhattan can offer.

This year – November 9th is that night – and this year that sugar promises to be sweeter than ever!
