Dear J-

The Olympics are underway and I’m reminded again how homer-iffic our announcers are on NBC, almost gleeful over the continued problems with the Chinese mens’ gymnasts. Some prejudices die hard, I guess; it wasn’t all that long ago that our jingoistic media kept hyping up the Soviet Union as the boogeyman.

I asked to go back to Pastalini because it’s been at least four weeks since we were there; I missed the atmosphere and food, to be honest, from the time I spent on the road. Plus the company is nice, isn’t it?

Mike
