For this year's birthday, I intend to find ways to exchange the seven deadly sins for seven lively good deeds. I'll trade lust for gratitude, gluttony for self-control, greed for compassion, sloth for efficiency, wrath for joy, envy for love, and pride for humility.

Unlike Julia who didn't start cooking till her thirties, Annie, from a food-focused Italian family, started as a kid.

The people who shed crocodile tears about health care rationing five years ago don't talk about the rationing that we have now (and had then), but they were right to be outraged. We should all be outraged that, in the richest country on the planet, people are denied needed care on the basis of wealth and income.
