The opponents of the noise ordinance certainly feel insulted, and it’s easy to understand why. These club owners, the target of the complaints, have built their own businesses, drawing countless people to downtown. They never asked for or received incentive money from the city, and this is their livelihood.

A dozen people clustered around my living room table — eying the matzo ball soup, kugel and charoset — listening to a Cliff Notes version of the Passover story.

In the canon of awful albums by great artists, Let It Be Roberta: Roberta Flack Sings the Beatles is among some distinguished company. Velvet Underground’s Squeeze was so bad that it was left out of their boxed set Peel Slowly and See, which pretty much gave every other questionable album they made a pass.

It wasn’t the first. It wasn’t the biggest. But this award-winning 1958 docudrama may well be the best depiction of the story of the ill-fated maiden voyage of the RMS Titanic, which struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank on April 15, 1912 with more than 1,500 lives lost.

It´s not hard to find good food in Greensboro, but it is a relatively rare occasion when I stumble across great food, something that really stands out and merits regular return visits. I take some pride in finding such hidden treasures myself rather than being alerted by a friend, and seize the opportunity to spread the word.

Crashing Myrtle Beach
And I like it. I like it very much. I’ve got a cigar going, and the coffee’s on inside my in-laws’ RV — which, incidentally, is larger and nicer inside than the first apartment I had to myself.
