How is it that your basic Jewish deli, one of not nearly enough in this city, for what it's worth, can make such a fabulous sammch involving pork and mayonnaise? I had a BLT from Manny's yesterday that was downright...transportive. Worthy of great rhapsody, in story and song.
I just heard that apparently when Susan Sarandon originally auditioned for Annie Savoy in Bull Durham the decisionmakers thought she was too old for the part. It seems semi-hilarious/emblematic of something or other, that men would build a fantasy groupie-cum-George-Willian baseball acolyte but then demand that she--what--be a ding-less 26-y-o? Or something. Or just not show age at all.
