“No News,” an old vaudeville routine, exhumed and retold. Plus, a classic Manhattan – good any time of year, but not very often.
Margaret writes in with a story of doing something small for Henry without claiming credit for it, like moving the Dazey Swing-Away can opener back to its start position. Also, how she prepares cut green beans from a can.

Jay Rogers of Local Motors breaks all the rules in automobile manufacturing: he’ll be the first in the world to print a car, live, in front of thousands. Plus, nice photos of sauteed soft-shell crabs, which I didn’t like that much as a dish (also a first for this blog!)
Thoughts on the Freedom Summer of 1964, Boston 1976, and racism as a serious problem for white people. Top it all off with your own homemade rhubarb schnaaps!
