When I decided to review this book I thought I was lending a helping hand to an unknown author. As it turns out J.R. Moehringer is quite successful in his writing career. So the review will be appropriately short. Early today a friend in Los Angeles emailed me about this book. She had it on CD and...

Starbuck's recent annoucement that it would start serving beer and wine at stores in Atlanta and Southern California has gotten lots of press in the last week.  Much of it, like much Starbucks, talk is rather tongue and cheek.  "Would You Like a Lager with Your Latte?"  "Starbucks...

THE HOTTEST SPOT IN TOWN July '73, Times Square, New York...There's a recession on, but you can't tell by me. I've got a bar job-- twenty-seven bucks a night and all the goldfish I can eat. It's at the Hotel Diplomat, an SRO on 43rd. St. and Sixth Ave. We call it "the Roach Motel"...
