 Married and Writing About It
This is the cover article from the sunday NYTimes Magazine. When I was reading it, I went from intrigued to repelled at too much information to curious about what wasn't written. Then, I got really curious about what the happyrobot intellegensia thought of it.

 Steve Loves Jamie
The Dodgers didn't make it to the world series, but that's okay. In LA, if we don't get glory, we'll settle for a soap opera. The owners of the Dodgers, the McCourts, are divorcing, and their divorce has been entertaining as the Phillies and Yanks play for glory in cold weather.

Steve Lopez wrote an incredibly funny piece in his column in sunday's LA Times.

I heard on the radio this morning that Odetta had passed away. The radio DJ called her a force of nature. When I was growing up, I loved to hear her sing 'Let it Shine'. I found this clip from the Newport Folk Festival on youtube. Wow

 Damn you, Frank Bruni!
Frank Bruni has been reviewing his top ten new restaurants outside of New York. Number six is Fraiche, a great restaurant not far from my house. It was a neighborhood secret, and now I'll never get a reservation. And their cocktails rock!

By the way, Rich, it's a block and a half from Ford's Filling Station. Yes, downtown Culver City has become very Restaurant Row. There are even two wine bars.
