  • Howard Stern v. Jamie Foxx

    One thing Howard Stern understands about radio is that it is a macho medium. It’s a man’s world.  My friend Teresa Strasser, who used to co-host the Adam Carolla Show on 97.1, pointed out to me that a woman DJ doesn’t stand a chance in drive time.  It’s cultural, but it’s also... read on

  • Two Chocolate Passover Desserts

    I promised a great dessert to go with my local, sustainable, non-agri-business, healthy Passover meal, and here it is.  You can make this for many people very quickly, and it uses no margarine or that sludge they call non-dairy creamer.  God did not free us from slavery so we could... read on

    The three things I find hardest to give up on passover are pizza, beer and tofu.  Okay, mostly just beer and pizza.  Oh, and scotch.

    In my cover story this week, I write about infusing Passover with the flavors of spring.  Here are those flavors:

    Let’s fac e it.  If you grow up with jarred gefilte fish, you may eventually develop a taste for it.  After all,... read on

  • Happy Passover, Danny DeVito

    In Barry Levinson’s 1987 movie Tin Men there’s two scenes that always struck me as getting to the emotional core of Passover. The first takes place at a bar.  Danny DeVito plays Tilley, a guy whose wife just left him for a man he loathes, and whose house and car have just been... read on
