LOS ANGELES, CA – If you’re a Los Angeles native, resident or even visitor, you will probably cringe at the combination of “LA” and “rush hour.” Sitting in LA traffic is an excruciatingly painful task, and not just because of the hours you spend putting pressure on your lower back. If your brakes aren’t screeching because of the driver who just cut you off, then you’re probably yelling about the bumper-to-bumper deadlock. Truth be told, traffic is infuriating, exhausting and unproductive

Six years ago, Jackie came back from a visit to her friend in Warsaw with the recipe for one of the great simple dumplings: leniwe pierogi, or lazy pierogi. They’re lazy (or the cook is) because, first, there’s no filling, just dough (a delicious cheese-based one at that); and, secondly, because they take just a few minutes to make. They can be eaten by themselves with butter and optional fried breadcrumbs, as a dessert, with butter and sugar, or even as a side dish with braised meat – not traditional, but delicious.

Now that the Chicago Cubs have won the World Series and broken then century long curse, the highlight of Wrigley Field has us thinking about the other great stadiums throughout America.

I wrote the following this morning and now comes word tonight that Leonard Cohen, one of the greatest writers of our time (poet, novelist, songwriter) has died at the age of 82. “Give me back the Berlin Wall.” Of course, Leonard Cohen, who at the age of 82 has just released one of his greatest and most popular albums, You Want It Darker , didn’t really mean that, a quarter-century ago. He sang in the guise of the unreliable narrator in his classic, and scary, song “The Future.” Other Cohen lyrics from that little ditty, written just after the 1989 fall of the Wall, call for the return of Stalin, more people to torture, and another Hiroshima, among other horrors.
