Chicago revisited

Last time in town, D took me to have pizza in a famous place not far from where he did med-school, which happens to be the set for ER. This pizza joint borders the Greek part of town, itself the setting for "My Big Fat Overrated Movie." As we walked its streets, I noted the Greek flags, the Greek travel posters. Greek pride is rampant these days, no doubt due in part to the popularity of said film. But with my usual cynicism, I sensed a different motive. In these post 9-11 days, they might as well have hung banners saying, "Greeks. We ain't Muslims."

On the turntable: Carlos Nunez, "Os Amores Libres"
On the nighttable: David Sedaris, "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim"
