Monday morning thoughts and some new things

We're winding down the summer, now. Every year around this time, things get really quiet in the media world—with most of Europe on vacation for at least another week. It's been blistering hot and humid in New York City for the last few weeks, so I decided to escape and booked myself out for a few weeks starting this weekend. All shall be revealed soon. In the meantime, some food stories from the last week:
