Dine, Oct. 17, "Deli Belly: Feldman's Deli is keeping it old school."
The first thing you miss when you move is food ... our incentive for creating Feldman's. Thank you, Alex, for your kind remarks and enthusiasm!

Cinema, Oct. 17, "The Terrible 10: Horror, slasher and just plain creepy films: We tip our witch's hat to you."
100% agree with The Changeling!

Tilting at Windmills, Pt. 2
I'm always fascinated by the strange illusory world inhabited by people like [last week's letter-writer] Michael W. Jarvis. A world with left-wing extremism but no right-wing extremism. A world of heavy social subsidies on the federal, state and local levels addressing numerous issues of a relatively select few, yet a world abjuring the "socialism" of places like Sweden and Switzerland. You know, places with large socialist entities like H&M, Ikea, Electrolux, Husqvarna, huge drug companies and any number of companies producing luxury products. You know, those impoverished countries in Western Europe where all the rich people have inexplicably disappeared of late? A world of debt incurred by one particular party and economic crises created under the watchful eye of the same, usually handed over to another routinely self-righteously scapegoated party to deal with. A world of self-sufficient people rescued continually throughout history by projects like the Transcontinental Railroad and the policies of the New Deal. A world rightly concerned about families but effectively creating a future which will cause many families on every level hardship. A world where treachery is considered a legitimate political tool. One should not only allude to Cervantes, but actually read him and learn from him about the world of illusion.
