Friday night's alright ...

... for pizza. And an open line.

The grocery was crazy, even though nothing's going to happen here. I had to get some yeast for "ah-beetz," a pizza recipe from The Sopranos cookbook. It's a family favorite -- the pizza and the whole cookbook, full of Americanized Sicilian recipes rich in oil, garlic and tomato -- and we're sending the prodigal off to his final semester in college. This is sort of like school cafeteria pizza. Except you top a thick crust with a simple tomato sauce -- crushed tomatoes, garlic and oil -- then slices of fresh mozzarella, fresh basil leaves and some grated parmesan. Garlic and yeasty dough fill the house with a wonderful smell. Simple and good.

Try the same approach here.

And Zelda is right by the way. This squabble in Mayflower over sports is worth a read for anybody hoping to understand small-town America.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
