weg9: Yes.....Many people think that the best food is to be found in farm
country....In fact, just the opposite is true....The big metropolitan areas
have the best food, because they have the most diverse populations, and New
York City is one of the best of those for obvious reasons. There aren't many
things I miss about NYC, but the great food is certainly one of them......

weg9: Well, the average marriage today lasts less that ten years, so I
can't draw too many conclusions from someone getting divorced.....There are
many reasons why something like that could happen.

Errrr....No? What has getting divorced got to do with "family values"? As I
said, there could be many reasons for getting a divorce. Infidelity is only
one possible reason.....In my case, because of the dumb IRS laws, my wife
and I never married, and we have been together since 1980.....(We met in
Herman's Deli on Geary Street in San Francisco....:^)
