Latke-off on Do Not Eat This Blog

The Collegian’s Do Not Eat This Blog blog covered a “latke-off” this weekend. It’s worth the read.

When Bruce Pincus eats a latke, he’s looking for a couple things.

He likes pure ingredients, a simple recipe and a final product dripping with oil. But for Pincus, the most important attribute is a latke’s nostalgia-inducing abilities.

“I need it to remind me of the latke I ate growing up. None of this new age stuff,” he said. “If it makes me think of Grandma’s home during Hanukkah, it’s a winner.”

Pincus was one of about 200 attendees drawn by the promise of latkes and other Jewish cuisine to Congregation Brit Shalom, 620 E. Hamilton Ave., for a kosher hot dog dinner, bake sale and latke cook-off. The event raised money for Hadassah, a volunteer women’s Zionist organization.

Personally, my favorite Jewish food is bagels and lox. I love me some salmon.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
