Worth Reading

I don't seem to remember Jackie Heaton from my days in Austin, but fortunately my pal Stewart Wise does, and so she's on this Casa Grande mailing list over on Yahoo! that Stewart put together to bind together some of the folks who were around the house he and some other wild youth lived in (including Lester Bangs, for a while) during the punk era, when he and this mob published a now-famous fanzine called Contempo Culture. Anyway, Jackie wrote a very low-key, very moving piece about a friend of hers who's moving back to his homeland, Iraq, and it's on Stewart's wonderful blog, and I recommend it.

The Julia Child recipe for Coq au Vin below it isn't bad, either...
