Witnessing an execution in war-torn. The young man's friends could not be present, for it was impossible for them to show themselves in that crowd and that place with wisdom or without distress, and I like to think that, although Rodríguez could not know it, there was one person present when he died who felt keenly for him, and who was a sympathetic though unwilling spectator.

…premise—a bicycling pot-delivery guy interacts with clients of various stripes on his rounds through New York City—it seemed like it had to be. Though there are always exceptions to the rule—Gregg Araki's feminist stoner odyssey Smiley Face being a recent and shining example—marijuana-based humor tends to proceed along a fairly predictable track: gags about paranoia and couch-lock, peril-fraught quests for fast food, and general jokes at the expense of the temporarily …
…Camden Yards, with Lenn Thompson of the New York Cork Report. And like many of the other attendees we stumbled upon Millstone. The cool part was that they were a different kind of producer.

Some kids fantasized about Hollywood. I fantasized about New York. Blame the movies. Forget the palm trees, give me yellow taxicabs and Gershwin's brass as background music.
And, being a reader, I read about New York. Voraciously. Somewhere in all those years, with decades between visits, I learned about Eisenberg's Sandwich Shop. When I began to visit the city with some regularity, I saw it from Fifth Avenue buses, although I was usually busier looking at the Flatiron Building across the street. But I never got there.
Levi Dalton, ex New York sommelier and host of the podcast I'll Drink to That! , could not be more of an enthusiast for Piemonte's finest wines. As preparation for my article on the growth of interest in Barolo , I therefore asked him for his comments and how these wines are currently viewed by.
