Save America

I read your paper because it’s free and I enjoy the ads. But I struggle through the left wing tripe that fills every page, from political cartoons to the vitriolic pen of Mr. Tuttle. What a shame this beautiful area of the state has such an abundance of Socialist/democrats. Or perhaps the silent majority chooses to stay silent...

Doom, Yet a Cup Half Full

In the news we are told of the civil unrest at Ferguson, Mo; ISIS war radicals in Iraq and Syria; the great corporate tax heist at home. You name it. Trouble, trouble, everywhere. It seems to me the U.S. Congress is partially to blame...

Uncomfortable Questions

defending the positions of the Israelis vs Hamas are far too narrow. Even Mr. Tuttle seems to have failed in looking deeply into the divide. American media is not biased against Israel, nor or are they pro Palestine or Hamas...

The Evolution of Man Revisited

As the expectations of manhood evolve, so too do the rules of love. In Mr. Holmes’s statement [from “Our Therapist Will See Us Now” in last week’s issue] he narrows the key to a successful relationship to the basic need to have your wants and needs understood, and it is on this point I expand...

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.”
