Essays by Joan Didion

What do you think of this letter (slightly modified) just received:
This has happened in the past and I think the counselor had been rehired the next year (not necessarily the one who was the subject of this letter). Some parents of counselors have complained that the rule is too harsh and...
I am posting this here in the hope of getting manton's view, since he has been banned from CE.
"The U.S.'s Stealth Fighter Is Too Heavy and Slow, So the Pentagon Made Its Performance Tests Easier"
I don't actually like what he is wearing in this particular shot, but trust me -- when it comes to style, this guy is among the best of the best.

I have an 8" slicing knife (this one) where the tip is bent. It is only a slight bend on the very very tip (the knife was jabbed into something frozen and went through to the hard surface below). More like a little hook. What is the best way to fix it?
Can someone recommend a watchmaker in NYC to clean, service and regulate an Omega bumper movement. My watch was overhauled by Omega about three years ago and is running slow. Omega did a great job on it before, replacing many of the parts, but they insist on sending it back to Switzerland...
Anyone gone or going to any of the matches? I saw the "Legends" event last night and some of the qualifiers. I would love to go Monday night, but I didn't think to order ahead and it is already sold out.
