NEW YORK UNIVERSITY HAS A REPUTATION as one of the premier institutions for graduate tax education, next to the University of Denver of course, in the nation. So when I received the summer program for continuing education, I was anxious to return to New York for that, and perhaps a meal or two or ten. I decided to take G along. And of course G invited two guests. After all, we’ve only been four times in the past three years, and there are restaurants to try that we haven’t been to.

IT’S BEEN SOMEWHILE SINCE I WROTE A COLUMN ON “STUFF”, or potpourri or whatever you wish to call it. I call it ramblings, cuz that’s what it really is. There are facts, comments, observations and stuff. It’s also been a while since I’ve done some bashin’, so today’s a good day for that too.
