An Early Harvest

It is not uncommon for fall to look and feel like spring. This is what fogs are for: to fool us. During a foggy spell — they can last several days — you cannot tell morning from night, or east from west. A dense fog, like the ones Sagaponack is known for, closes all but the immediate foreground. For the farmer, it is time travel; when all but the immediate foreground is withheld, the expanse beyond is familiar and infinite — those fields. Silk from unseen worms catch the air’s moisture, and silver lines from tree to tree, to earth, ... by Marilee Foster

Time’s Up, Mr. Trump

In my entire, faithful history of voting, I have only voted for two Democrats for president of the United States. The first was Hubert Humphrey, way back in 1968 (which also happened to be the first time I was eligible to vote). I was in flight training in Pensacola, Florida, and I just felt Richard Nixon was somehow going to betray us on the Vietnam War, which I was about to head into. Little did we know Nixon had already betrayed us on the Vietnam issue. The second time I voted for a Democrat for president was just the other ... 26 Oct 2020 by Phil Keith

Reckless Behavior

“Local Law to Prevent Reckless Biking in Suffolk County.” That’s the title of a proposed law now before the Suffolk County Legislature. Suffolk is not alone in this area in considering such a law. The legislature in neighboring Nassau County voted unanimously last year for a measure involving “reckless riding” of bicycles and also e-scooters and skateboards. The office of Legislator John Ferretti Jr., author of the Nassau measure, spoke of it addressing “a new trend that is occurring throughout Long Island where children are riding bikes and scooters recklessly, terrorizing drivers while doing wheelies and playing ‘chicken’ against traffic.” ... 25 Oct 2020 by Karl Grossman

A Food History

I wasn’t always a good cook. Early in my marriage, I made a lamb stew for my stew-loving husband. It had pieces of shoulder of lamb, potatoes, rutabaga, turnips, parsnips, onions, carrots, and, of course, potatoes. A cup of red wine was called for. As it cooked slowly for hours, with the rich smells emanating from the stew, my chest swelled as I prepared an offering of love for my new husband. You can imagine my surprise when the stew exploded. The container I was cooking it in — a glass Pyrex dish with a secure matching lid — launched ... by Joanne Pateman

VIEWPOINT: We Need The U.S. Postal Service Now More Than Ever

By Jorge Balan The U.S. Post Office Act of 1792 has been called a landmark in American communications policy. Radically departing from its colonial predecessor established in British North America as a source of revenue, the act made the post office a central piece of the administrative apparatus of an independent republic, guaranteeing its rapid expansion into the frontier. Two centuries later, it became obvious that the internet was eroding the value of the first-class letter, a main source of revenue for the postal system until the use of electronic mail pushed it out of our daily needs. However, the ... by By Jorge Balan

Friends In The Broccoli

The greenhouses, with their higher average temperature, invite not just longer plant life but longer insect seasons, too. In between cherry tomatoes and winter kale, this hoop house became a dry and sandy clime like that of a Southwestern state. And so, with it, the ant lion. Ant lions excavate dens in dry earth, a funnel-shaped pit into which unsuspecting smaller creatures, especially ants, may crawl. The ant lion, or “doodlebug,” as they are affectionately called, upon sensing that a meal is near, hurls sand upward and draws the prey down by undermining its footing. To the naive human eye, ... by Marilee Foster

Stupid In America

I have been wondering how Dr. Anthony Fauci has been handling his fall from grace. In the spring, when the pandemic was first reaching for our throats, he was all over the airwaves, giving advice, assessing the risks, answering questions, explaining to an eager and ignorant public how to protect itself from the virus. Most of all, social distancing. Wear masks. Wash your hands. Stay out of large crowds. Now you don’t see him much anymore. The president didn’t like the attention he was getting, or even the advice. The president wanted to pretend that he and his administration had ... by Anthony Brandt
