BACK TO PASTA PIATTI (see yesterday) for another salad: this time "Caesar," in quotes because 1) no anchovy 2) no raw egg. I'm resigned to the latter; the stupid salmonella police have ruined things for all of us. But why no anchovy? Bogus; bogus.
On the other hand I just came home from what may have been the definitive performance of Othello. I think I'll never go see another production of it. I hope to write about it, and other plays seen this week, over at The Eastside View: it's two weeks now since I've been there.
