cultures collide. See Page 6.

Food for Thought

aphrodisiac: stir-fry. If it works, name one of your kids after him. See Page 9.
Only one column this week Jesse the Deserter decided to feign being an
essayist, leaving Jonathan Chait as residue. Trying to fill Jesse's shoes as well as
his own, Chait has undertaken the Herculean task of teaching us all how to
write proper letters to the editor.
"Nuts and Bolts," "Roger's Thesaurus" and "Tram to Nowhere."
