More and more think-tanks are looking like yell-tanks. Which is sad.

Gary Winograd's photography exhibit at the National Gallery of Art is worth a look. http://buff.ly/1hDEEhD
REVIEW | Garry Winogrand’s photographs, on display at the National Gallery, capture a people perpetually hungry — and ultimately unsatisfied.

I like Robert Caro's books, but not his imbecilic whining about bookstores closing in Manhattan. http://buff.ly/1gqlJuh

A classic!
Where was this book when we moved to New Yawk in 1993? Hopeful rubes from Ohio, our hapless goyim brains got lost in a sea of incomprehensible utterances---schmuck! shmutz! shlemiel! shicksa! schti...

I found a 1981 #Atari Ad stuffed in an old book. Just $499 for a 5.25" floppy drive!

Introduction

I am the author of Ronald Reagan and Education Policy (2011), Failing Grades: The Federal Politics of Education Standards (2005); and Whiskey: A Global History (2010).

My writings have appeared in scholarly and professional journals, such as the Presidential Studies Quarterly, Public Administration Review, and Teachers College Record; and in popular media, including The Weekly Standard magazine, and online publications, such as American Enterprise Institute Ideas Blog.

  • New York University
    Politics PhD, 2003
Yes, I loved this place. I visited three times in the four days I was there. Twice I had the hot chocolate, which was delicious. Once, when trying to make a creme smiley face on it, the counter gal ended making a slightly scary scowl. Without missing a beat, she called it the Donny Darko Hot Chocolate, and we both laughed. (That's the vibe there.) Bittersweet has free WiFi, and it was fun to watch the bakery at work (there's a glass window through which you can watch a mega-mixer work.) It's a fresh, bright, new space, and the confections are gorgeous. (Visited 1/8/14, 1/9/14, 1/10/14)

I liked everything about this place---the incredibly friendly management and staff, the chic/moderne interior, the locally sourced ingredients, and the fact that it was not offering the same-old-same-old N'awlins fare (gumbo, crawdads, etc.) The fish of the day when I visited was pan seared scallops, which were terrific. It was a nice touch to be given a free appetizer at the start of the meal. I wish Sainte Marie well and hope to dine there again next I visit. (Visited 1/814)

I popped over to this small neighborhood shop in search of coffee and baked goods for my kids. I got a well-made cup of coffee and three tasty chocolate cupcakes ($10.95 before tax). As an FY, I should mention that Something Sweet is mostly a carryout operation---these are very few seats inside and very few outside. (Visited 4/6/14)

I have been here a half-dozen times for lunch. The menu always varies a bit, which is nice. I've enjoyed mussels, frites, lambsburger, and croque-monsieur. I enjoyed them all. The service has always been pleasant. You can sit inside or outside, and the decore is stylish. (Visited 3/13/14)

I and my three young kids have gone here for weekend brunch a couple of times. The service has been friendly, the menu appealed to both the adults and children, and our meals arrived quickly and nicely done. (Visited 2/9/14)

I enjoyed having brunch here one Sunday morning. The place prides itself on fresh juices. I had a Red Zinger, which was made from apple, carrot, beet, and ginger. It is an easy combination to screw up, but they made it very well and promptly. The owner visited our table and said hello to seemingly everyone of the throng who was there. The coffee was good, as was the salmon omelet. I look forward to returning. (Visited 3/9/14)

I have eaten a lot of bad Chinese food, which tends to be marked by greasiness and limp vegetables. This was NOT the case with Szechuan Chalet. While visiting New York City in late May 2010, I need to order Chinese food for four, and I needed it in a hurry. I had seen good reviews of Szechuan Chalet on Yelp and gave it a whirl. I was very pleased---you can order carryout via their slick website or by phone. Although it was around 7:15 on a Saturday night, our order arrived in elss than 30 minutes, and was steaming hot. We enjoyed vegetable moo shu, shrimp with black bean sauce, vegetable dumplings, small skewres with chicken on them, cabbage, and more. We all were very happy. The New York Timesalso has written well of this restaurant: http://events.nytimes.com/2010/01/27/dining/reviews/27unde.html
