If there’s one thing you learn as former Speaker of the House, it’s how to effectively place the blame. And Nancy took advantage of that experience yesterday:
“How does something like this happen? Because a person with impaired judgment had access to firepower that should be outlawed. There is no reason why these assault magazines – and that’s what they are. We’ve got to call them what they are.”
So now you who to blame for the Newtown tragedy: Assault Magazines.
STOP TH-EM! BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE!
Maybe San Fran Nan should watch this video (h/t Nancy/Guest – not Fancy Nancy) before she discusses assault magazines again or leaps into a discussion of “assault bullets.”
I return you to now our regular Christmas Season programming: Salads.
My contribution today, while technically a salad, is actually more of a lunch or dinner, and a summer one at that. Butt as December thoughts turn to Christmas, Dewey’s thoughts turned to the old Hudson’s Department Store - where they claim to have invented the Maurice Salad – and he sent me this recipe that he got from Mrs. P. Dewey remembers the version served at the now defunct Buhl Café best, butt they’re essentially the same.
Here’s the original version, complements of Mrs. P of Patum Peperium:
Combine the first 6 dressing ingredients and stir to dissolve the sugar. Add remaining dressing ingredients and mix well. Combine the ham, turkey, cheese and pickles together in a large bowl. Toss together with the dressing. Divide lettuce among the plates, top with salad and garnish each plate with 2 olives. Serve with fresh bread.
Garnish with tomato wedges, hard boiled egg wedges, radishes and olives to make it The Buhl Cafe version.
Little Mo recommends adding to the gerkins or replacing the gerkins with watermelon pickles. I don’t know if he really likes the salad with watermelon pickles or if he just wanted me to say “gerkins” two more times.
Ah yes! Detroit. Dewey at one time worked in all 4 buildings standing at the intersection of Larned and Griswold in the city’s Financial District: One Woodward, The Guardian Building the Buhl Building and the late-to-the-game Madden Building. Remembering anew what once was.
The Madden Building: late comer
Madden Building aka 150 Jefferson
