HOW ARE OLDER AMERCIANS COPING WITH THE SOCIAL ISOLATION OF COVID-19?

When I worked as a copy editor at The Record, we discussed the phrase "died suddenly." The style of The Record and many other newspapers is to write died "unexpectedly."

Everyone dies "suddenly." You are alive one moment, dead the next.

Well said.

Here's a typo that could give a celebrated chef indigestion:

A gushing profile of Chef Laurent Tourondel appeared on the front page of the Hackensack Chronicle last Friday (March 26), reprinted from NorthJersey.com and The Record of Woodland Park. I'm not sure what the purpose of such profiles are, but they are a specialty of Esther Davidowitz, The Record's food editor and chief restaurant reviewer who rarely, if ever, makes clear whether she is comped or pays for her meals.

Tourondel opened LT Bar & Grill "in Hackensack," the profile says, but the actual location, the Shops at Riverside on Hackensack Avenue, isn't mentioned. But that's not the typo.

The profile jumps from the front page to Page 3 and again to Page 4, going on and on about all the restaurants he's opened around the world, and how great his food tastes.

"He ended up cooking in Moscow, Brazil, Vietnam and Las Vegas," Davidowitz exclaims, "and in 2020 opened Cello in New York to rave reviews. He went on to open BLT Steak (2004), BLT Fish (2005)...."

Sorry, Esther. Cello opened in 1999.

So far, 38 people have read this about the City Council election on May 11, and not a single reaction.

I guess that's a reflection of the apathy, even boredom that greets the May election every 4 years and the Board of Education and school budget election every April.

Hackensack Discussion / 2021 City Council Election
« on: March 25, 2021, 03:40:00 PM »
Deputy Mayor David Sims has been dumped from the City Council slate headed by Mayor John Labrosse, and Sims is heading his own slate in the non-partisan May 11 election.

He is seeking help from former 4-term Mayor Jack Zisa, whose allies were ousted by Labrosse's reform slate in 2013.

Labrosse cited the violation of the Covid-19 lockdown at City Hall by Sims when he brought his daughter, who had tested positive, into the building.

Sims and the other council members were reelected in 2017.

A third City Council slate is being headed by Leila Amirhamzeh, a member of the Hackensack Board of Education.

What's your reaction to this latest brouhaha in Hackensack?

The Record carried a story about Deputy Mayor David Sims violating the lockdown at Hackensack City Hall on Dec. 22, 2020, and bringing his married daughter, who had tested positive for Covid-19. They interacted with a city employee, who was sent home to quarantine for 14 days, according to the story, which was reprinted on the front page of the Jan. 22, 2021, Hackensack Chronicle.

The original story in The Record prompted the DailyVoice.com to cover the violation by Sims. Before that, an editor at the Daily Voice said he wouldn't report it and called the controversy over Sims' Covid-19 violation political. The story was also covered by a TV news station in New York.
