What Starts With 'T?' Tamales…and Trump
We stopped for gas on Interstate 80 in Pennsylvania and spotted a food truck.
Or rather, we spotted the sign.
I was instantly sorry we had just eaten a great lunch and dessert after I gave a talk for adults and met with students at the bustling journalism center at vibrant Susquehanna University, in the pleasant river town of Selinsgrove, Pa.
After lunch in such good company, no way we could even sample a tamale.
But I pointed at the sign alongside Zapata’s Food Truck at Exit 256 and told the guys outside: "Próxima vez." Next time.

Do you remember (?) Mosier who played for Susquehanna when you were in school? Very good player. It appears you are travelling the old MAC div.2 circuit! Stay well......

Lew, great to hear from you, I just looked it up, Hofstra beat Susquehanna six straight times in five years (once in ECAC playoff in 62-63.) Our lunch pals beat them, 70-60, in 59-60, when they were 23-1.

Go to Muhlenberg in Allentown, if you get the chance. It is a great, student-centered College. Despite a fellow reader, goal keeper, etc. “ Oh Muhlenberg was Muhlenberg when Lehigh was a pup...” 1848.

Ed, Lehigh was founded in 1865 not too far behind. Muhlenberg was a great school to visit and not because we beat them in soccer on each visit. Allentown was a favorite of mine to visit for all it old and historic sites.

What was that other school’s name? I remember it started with L.

“I don’t think people understand how Covid affects older Americans,” Mr. Caretti said with frustration. “In 2020, there was this all-in-this-together vibe, and it’s been annihilated. People just need to care about other people, man. That’s my soapbox.”
---Vic Caretti, 47, whose father recently died of Covid at 85.
---From an article by Paula Span, who covers old age for the NYT, which currently has 2646 comments, the majority criticizing the American public – and public officials – for acting as if the pandemic is “over.”
Classic wishful thinking, at a lethal level.
