Come Together There is a time-honored war strategy known as “divide and conquer,” and never has it been more effective than now. The enemy is using it against us through television, internet and other social media. I opened a Facebook account a couple of years back to gain more entries in local contests. Since then I had fallen under its spell; I rushed into judgment on several social issues based on information found on those pages

Quiet The Phones! This weekend we attended two beautiful Christmas musical events and the enjoyment of both were significantly diminished by self-absorbed boors holding their stupid iPhones high overhead to capture extremely crucial and highly needed photos. We too own iPhones, but during a public concert we possess the decency and manners to leave them turned off and/or at home. Today’s performance, the annual Messiah Sing at Traverse City’s Central Methodist Church, was a new low: we watched as Mr. Self-Absorbed not only took several photos but then afterwards immediately posted them to his Facebook page. We were dumbfounded.

A Torturous Defense In defense of the C.I.A.’s use of torture in a mostly fruitless search for vital information, some suggest that the dire situation facing us after 9-11, justified the use of torture even at the expense of the potential loss of much of our nation’s moral authority.

Harbor 22 Bar & Grill offers eclectic, tasty menu

Ross Boissoneau - December 17th, 2012



  At Harbor 22, it’s all about the teamwork with a staff of enthusiastic chefs and managers.
  So, what about the food? Local whitefish makes an appearance, of course, but in some unexpected ways. In addition to a crusted whitefish with lemon risotto, there’s smoked whitefish pate with caramelized onion, dill crostini and capers and blackened whitefish tacos with pickled jalapeno slaw.
    The Great Lakes Reuben includes house-smoked pastrami and sauerkraut from The Brinery in Ann Arbor. Throw in bread from Bay Bread, meats from Maxbauer’s, and a host of local beers and wines, and you’re on the right track.
  Add bourbon-glazed meatloaf, crispy brussels sprouts, fresh pasta and the charcuterie -- a selection of smoked meats and seafood -- and you've got "a lot of nice flavors that work well together."
