Roberto A. Ferdman had an excellent post this morning on Wonkblog about a Williamsburg bagel company serving rainbow bagels, and becoming super popular by doing so. Putting aside that a rainbow bagel is an abomination and should not be permitted to call itself a bagel, the most interesting part of the post for me is the indignant reactions of Williamsburg residents lamenting the effect that the bagel store (called The Bagel Store) has had on the neighborhood. And no, as Ferdman points out, it is not long-time Hasidic Jewish residents complaining.
The building my wife and I live in in Brooklyn only has one option for high speed Internet; Time Warner Cable. I may as well say that it has only one option for Internet as anything less than high speed is unthinkable. We need to be able to connect two computers, two PlayStations, two cellphones and a tablet, and we need for everything to be available right away on all of those platforms, and usually more than one at the same time. So we are stuck with Time Warner Cable and Time Warner Cable is failing us.
