Washington Heights restaurant celebrates its "A"...
I stopped into Sushi Yu 2 on West 181st Street yesterday for the first time in many months, and for the first time since the restaurant earned an “A” from the New York City Health Department on September 1. Because I was only getting a quick snack, this isn’t a full review, but I was interested at the staff member’s response when I congratulated her for the “A”...

I will keep updating this as I have time but I wanted to post this and get…

In addition to giving me another good reason not to visit the Mall of America, I think all Americans should read this and ask themselves, “Is this the America that we believe in?” Kind of ironic that this kind of intrusive surveillance is happening at a place called the “Mall of America,” too. Says a lot about what has happened to our country as fear dominates logic in...

Sounds like some small-minded people in Texas made a couple of mistakes, but it also sounds like the school’s principal at least attempted to do right - to the extent possible after-the-fact. What are your thoughts?
