The N.Y. Cadre

is an unassuming, semi-detached, stucco-faced
("You can even get stucco. Oh, how you can get stucko!"—Groucho)
frame house on a fairly quiet street in Brooklyn
[longitude 73.938° W, latitude 40.629° N]
where reside MARC S. GLASSER, DONNA L. CAMP,
and [occasionally] their son ETHAN GLASSER-CAMP.
At various times it has also been the residence of assorted felines
(all sadly departed now),
including ERIS, MYSTI, and most recently, HEIFER (a/k/a MooFace).

You may contact any of the humans telephonically at (718) NY-CADRE
[(718) 692-2373 for all-digit dialers],
by postal mail at 1088 East 40th Street, Brooklyn, New York 11210,
or via the Internet at

Yes, those pictures up there are between 15 and 20 years old, but we like them.
Here's a more recent (January 2017) picture of the crew:

We regret to announce the passing of HeiferCat in September 2016 at the age of 20.
Immediate cause is not certain,
but as she was arthritic, asthmatic, diabetic, constipated, and missing one leg and her thyroid,
it's probably simplest to say "old age" and leave it at that.
She will be missed.

Donna is now a septuagenarian. Congratulations!
Regrettably, her streak of hospital-free living was broken in July 2017,
when an infection of some sort landed her in Brooklyn Methodist for a few days.
She's working on getting a new streak going and is up to eight months.
Assorted outpatient visits continue, though,
and much dental work remains to be completed.
The fun never ends!

Ethan has now been working for Mozilla for over a year, disappearing every couple of months for a company conference in another state or country.
He and his Domestic Partner, Rita, recently moved into a co-op apartment on Ocean Parkway,
thus becoming Home-Moaners, and, by implication, Grown-Ups.
We offer congratulations and condolences.
It's a mile further from the Cadre, but still convenient enough for The Kid
to continue dropping by and kicking parental butt about decluttering.

His Peace Corps Volunteer blog is still there for the reading.
His 2007 project was shelved for lack of positive feedback,
but may still be downloaded and played with. Perhaps some day the world will yet be ready...
His résumé also remains available.

Marc, in recognition of having hit the age of 65, has cut his work hours back
to about 72% of full-time (185 days a year)
at his current (since March 2012) freelance assignment
proofreading and copyediting at a large midtown financial asset management corporation
(though he's also working a couple of side projects).
Since he's now a Grumpy Old Man, you'd best get off his lawn, and
whatever you do, don't phone before noon on weekends!
Just in case that assignment should softly and suddenly vanish away, here's his résumé.

The final paper collation of APA-NYU was held on April Fools' Day 2004.
The first monthly "collation" of the apa's new electronic incarnation was issued on 5 May 2004.
158 more have followed it so far.
If you missed them, e-mail Marc and ask about getting copies,
and then visit <> to join the e-list.
