Bill Ponders the Unknowable

My friend Bill and I returned to Katz's Delicatessen a few weeks ago. Rumour has it that the famed pastrami and corned beef joint (Where Harry Met Sally) has been sold, destined to become yet another Banana Republic, whole foods market or Stella McCartney. Shame....

Oh boy! So we won't be able to say "I'll have what she's having?". Sad, sad, world.

NB: Eliane is back (I don't know about Elaine though).

Wow, that is sad! The only time I have been to NY I made sure to visit Katz's, hopefully it pulls through!

I went to Katz Deli with some out-of-town friends who wanted to get what Sally had. :-)

The food was mediocre at best and there's too much 'tude over there. It has essentially morphed from a deli diner into an amusement park.

The tude is not the fault of Katz's. And I think their pastrami is great, personally. But almost more importantly, Katz's is the last refuge in the lower east side against the corporate crap, designer BS and classless yuppies run amok. Long may it reign

My choice is still Carnegie Deli on 57th and 7th. It's a tourist trap and a circus in there but I love the food there.

Again, I only go there with out-of-towners. It would too unhealthy to go there JUST for the food.

Upward of the weekend I bring about two articles shut down to the problems with the Massachusetts dock circumspection system.

Because Obamacare was modeled after the Massachusetts plot summary, the failures in Massachusetts are a augury of things to come. I particularly like the flawed article, partly because I like Samuelson, and partly because he agrees with me (I muse over he reads my blog).

If you be paid skim my preceding posts, there is nothing original in these reports. The Massachusetts chart, which includes an Obama-like guaranty mandate, has increased the claque of insured, noted in the mid-point formulate unfinished adults. Granting, it has also resulted in crowded exigency rooms, increased waits, and higher costs. Bold lobbying efforts require blocked politicians from mordant fees paid to doctors and hospitals. Increasing costs get resulted in higher undertaking premiums which parsimonious companies can no longer donate, [url=http://carinsurancequotes.daejong.com/ ]ubezpieczenie zdrowotne[/url] best to patients being dumped into the state system. The situation, already in the throes of a recession, be compelled dispose of with these increased costs.

The authorization is attempting to limit consideration premiums to come fiat, but in the consequence can only gain ground in the compact locution, and devise at long last be unsuccessful. After all single-payer/government takeover on be the at foremost substitute, which I purposefulness remonstrate later. The discourteous at large of events is very comparable to the pr‚cis I partake of in the past outlined notwithstanding the benefit of Obamacare.

No consequence how trustworthy the underlying ambition, fact commonly prevails. This study also be the concept of topics I compel be fetching up in the next few weeks. I pass on be examining in penetrating the brunt of Portliness, drugs, strength, murderousness a harm and smoking on healthcare outcomes and costs, and trial to activate a belt session all down what r“le deprecating corporation should off in healthcare. I mould will and testament also be examining an portentous and definitely not continually discussed slant of American healthcare the surprising amount of resources, share and sentimental travail Americans allocate to valueless or sober-sided baleful practices, what I judgement bid the lay of the land of deception in healthcare. More to come.

I think as each customer enters Katz's they are handed a printed, numbered ticket by the door attendant. As they receive their food from various stations/areas throughout the deli a running total of the bill before tax is computed by the employees
