Sixth and Rye

Matt Yglesias:

It’s struck me as odd for a while now that my community has been so complacent in the face of the ongoing destruction of Ashkenazi diaspora cuisine. Border disputes and high politics aside, the State of Israel simply doesn’t carry the torch for the actual heritage of American Jewish families in this way. In other words: Lots of falafel, no pastrami.

His solution: food trucks! You wouldn’t need to subsidize them forever, I think – seed capital will do. Dave Winer offers a list of tech ideas to tech incubators, asking only that people who decide to implement his ideas tell him and, if things work out, give him a chance to invest.

I’m quite fond if Iggy’s bagels myself, and nothing beats homemade pastrami.
