Profiles BRIGADE DE CUISINE by John McPhee. PROFILE of the owner-chef of a sort of farmhouse-inn less than 100 miles from N.Y.C., where superb food is served.

Jazz by Whitney Balliett.

Comment by Jonathan Schell. Quoted in Comment on the recent intrusion of religion into politics, especially in Iran where Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini would have God Himself run the country. God's qualities (perfect, eternal, invisible, and absolute) make Him dangerous in politics. A democrat must hold to Gotthold Lessing's words: "Let each man say what...
