"... that feeling of personalities colliding and conspiring in the serendipity of a moment—that makes a restaurant so essential to the hum of a community."
Esquire :: The Real Reason I Miss Restaurants Has Nothing to Do With Food (via it is what it is*)
"This has the polemical energy of a contrarian attack on a lazy bromide."
TLS :: Pitiless transactions
"To put it in allegorical terms, the E.U. is restricting the size of the castle even as it dramatically increases the moat."
Stratecherry :: India, Jio, and the Four Internets
