It Appears Data For Wells Coming Off Confidential List Today Won't Be Posted Until Later -- Going For A Long Walk -- Catch You Later

I stopped subscribing to The New Yorker a couple of years ago. It had become a mouthpiece for Hillary; every issue was devoted to Hillary and tearing down Trump. I had subscribed to The New Yorker for decades but finally had to call it quits when the cartoons in one issue were all about Trump.

Enough was enough.

Gradually, over time, The New Yorker seems to be recovering from its TDS, The lead essay will always be anti-Trump as long as Trump is around, even after he's out of office, but at least, it appears, the rest of the magazine has moved on.

In the current issue, several great reads, including an essay on one of Hollywood's best writers (David Milch), and a review of Rammstein, the German hard metal band.

By the say, I now understand why the band (Rammstein) uses pyrotechnics in their show -- or at least how it got started. I assume they continue to use pyrotechnics 'cause the fans love it.

The Apple Page

It is interesting how so many folks miss the big story.

Another example.

Apple announces an upgrade for the iPod.

A reader suggested that was the last time we will see an upgrade for the iPod.

That reader completely missed the big story.

Another revenue stream for Apple.

The David Lynch Page

A sixty-minute interview with David Lynch. At the link, a reader has provided a "timed-index."

As some would say, "ayy lmao."

The Restaurant Page


The most tender calimari I have ever had was at the 54th Street Restaurant and Drafthouse at the Rim in San Antonio, on I-10 going north just a half-mile north of Loop 1604. It was prepared in the usual way -- deep-fried, but was incredibly tender, and came with two sauces: the usual sauce for deep-fried calimari and a Tex-Mex sauce.

Today, I ordered calimari for lunch at The Lazy Dog in Grapevine, the Glades Park, and I was surprised again. This time, the calimari was not deep-fried. It was grilled and then mixed in a sauce and served on a bed of mixed brown rice and nuts. Incredibly good. The calimari was listed as a starter and that's all I wanted for lunch: a small tapa serving. The "starter" was in, fact, large enough for a full meal. As a starter it could easily be shared by four people.

This was my first time at The Lazy Dog. I'm not sure how to describe the restaurant fare except to say it was very, very eclectic. My calimari seemed like something I might see at a Chinese buffet.
