That Dog - Retreat From The Sun was featured on The Good Wife last night. Catchy tune.

Nice to see Uncle Junior is now a Judge. I had forgotten that he was Johnny Ola in The Godfather Part II.

I cook a lot and this video explains a hack about cutting a bell pepper.

NY1 has a feature on how streets received their names. Today was Union Square, never knew it although I am there almost every weekend(from Wiki):

Union Square is an important and historic intersection and surrounding neighborhood in Manhattan, New York City, located where Broadway and the former Bowery Road – now Fourth Avenue – came together in the early 19th century; its name celebrates neither the Federal union of the United States nor labor unions but rather denotes that "here was the union of the two principal thoroughfares of the island".

William Howard Taft was a fan of waterboarding. The "so called water cure," he admitted, was used "on some occasions to extract information."

Bridge of Spies was interesting. as Col. Abel was terrific. The history of James B. Donovan put out by Fordham University was fascinating. His espionage background, including General Counsel for the OSS, was downplayed in the movie:

“The fact that I had a wartime background in espionage,” Donovan wrote, “apparently led Abel to regard me as a sort of retired spy who could appreciate his professional predicament.”
