Vaccines And Israel Apparently Stephen Tuttle thinks that whatever he writes is accepted as fact according to his February 9th article titled “Outrageous.”

Turn Your Lights On I’ve mentioned this before in this column, but here we go again.

Measles Facts, Not Fear I am responding to Mr. Steven Tuttle, who stated in a recent column that politicians who support parents’ rights to make vaccine choices for their children are promoting fear mongering rather than science.

Media Or President? Fox’s Heather Childers took exception to President Obama’s use of the term “YOLO” (you only live once) in a healthcare.gov promotional video by responding with “Well, you know who’s not alive? Kayla Mueller.”

Silence Cheapens Us All Brian Williams, the deposed NBC news anchor, was recently crucified upside down on the cross of conservative obscenities.

Burgermeister Bob Serves Up a Great Book

Anne Stanton - August 5th, 2004
Bob Sloan, perhaps one of the area’s most prolific writers, has just published a great new cookbook for burger lovers: “Great Burgers: Mouthwatering Recipes.”
You might wonder how you can put together an entire book of burger recipes, but Sloan does it with aplomb. Yes, there are the recipes for the basic burger (meat, salt, oil, and buns), but then there are the Bob creations which take burgers to a whole new level. Try the portobello mushroom and goat cheese burger. The breakfast burger is a yummy creation that will make even Monday mornings look good.
Sloan gives great advice on the basics of cooking up a good burger (don’t overcook it). And his writing is a treat:
“The burger is working class, a solid citizen--a humble and unpretentious marriage of meat and heat. .. Gussy up a burger too much and it looks out of place, like a farmer in a tux.”
Or his advice on raw onion:
“Thinly sliced only! Avoid the inch-thick bar-burger onion slices, which only serve to devolve the burger itself into a condiment.”
Sloan and his wife Randi teach at the Dalton School in New York City, and spend their summers off in Leelanau County. He has written a series of Lenny Bliss mysteries and several cookbooks, the most famous of which is “Dad’s Own Cookbook.”
