We value your support now more than ever.

All year we’ve been covering the issues that matter most to you—the pandemic, the election, policing, housing, and more—and now our end of year membership campaign is here. Will you support our work to ensure we can bring you the same informative local reporting in 2021?

This past weekend, I drove to the Catskills for a friend’s 40th birthday party. Oh, the media luminaries with whom I wined and dined! And you know what? Many of them like Rush. But I digress. Across the street from my hotel, you could get a really good sandwich at Hogan’s deli. Yes, it was called the Hogan’s Hero. Still digressing. Near the cash registers was a trove of Snickers Charged, which is like Snickers, but with 60 mg of caffeine, 250 mg of taurine (which, according to Wikipedia, contributes to “inhibitory neurotransmission,[9] long-term potentiation in the striatum/hippocampus, membrane stabilization, feedback inhibition of neutrophil/macrophage respiratory bursts, adipose tissue regulation, calcium homeostasis and recovery from osmotic shock“), and 10 percent of the U.S. RDA of both vitamins B-6 and B-12.

I ate one on the ride home. First, it made my eyelids vibrate. Then I was shouting, “IN YOUR FACE, BIN LADEN!” as we careered down I-83. Stopped at a Cracker Barrel in York, Pa., too, but that’s a story for another post.
