“Snapshots” of Islam Offensive  In his latest effort (Northern Express Nov. 23 - Nov. 29, 2015,) David Kachadurian provides a jumble of FYI disclosures pertaining to Islam and Muslim societies, and posing as if providing a public service announcement, he advises the readers to ponder their import and to “make of them what you will.”

Not Another War To these people who believe we need to be at war in the Middle East all the time: try thinking about getting the countries that are in the area to take care of these bad guys instead of us. We are almost in constant war and have been as long as most can remember...

The Unvaccinated Are Punished Pulling healthy children from school due to a so called “outbreak” of a mild childhood illness isn’t for the safety of the community, as we’re being led to believe. It’s to prove a point that the health department will follow through on their threats to exclude the unvaccinated from all school related events, whenever they see fit...

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.”
