John Jeremiah Sullivan • New York Times Magazine • September 2012

The country's uncertain future. On the plane, something odd but also vaguely magical-seeming happened: namely, nobody knew what time it was.

As a result, we had caught up—our time had passed into …

Last weekend the New York Times published its annual list of executive compensation, with Oracle's Larry Ellison topping the charts at $ 78.4 million (and Disney's Bob Iger in a distant second, at $ 34.3 million). Pay packages have increased by an average of 9 percent since 2012, continuing a steady and spectacular rise even as average wages in the United States and throughout much of the developed world have stagnated.

Back then, between Howard G Goldberg in the New York Times and Lenn Thompson with Lenndevours, Long Island had what seemed like an insurmountable lead in the world of New York wine.

I laughed as I followed him up and down Route 25A on Long Island, the back of his car tagged with Pittsburgh Steelers bumper stickers. He can be loud, boisterous, opinionated (I am sure he'll have some critique of this piece), funny, devilish, and just plain down to earth (as when he lost …

I suppose I'd go with the New York Times on how often you need to eat somewhere. Three times will tell you if somewhere is consistent on all levels - food, service, atmosphere - but the reality is, these days, with budgets slashed the way they are, that isn't always possible. At places where I'm a regular, I'm very loyal to them.

What do you do when a restaurant offers you free food in exchange for a review? Do you think that blogging has changed the integrity or credibility …

The Times newspaper, Monday 24 February

In an interesting piece in today's edition of ‘The Times', writer Patrick Kidd discusses the recent trend for stating the calorie content on the back label of wine bottles. But is it really something consumers want to see? Berry Bros. & Rudd's Mark Pardoe MW argues not...

Calories are creeping up on us, and there are increasingly few places left to hide. Recent health campaigns and Government guidelines have prompted …
