At the Enjoyable Sandwich Café...

... you can talk all night.And you can shop all night, too, preferably through The Althouse Amazon Portal.That sandwich photograph originally appeared on this blog back here, in 2009.

Venture capital is all about taking big risks for the potential of even bigger payouts down the road, while insurance is all about quantifying and mitigating risk.

True story. While trekking between San Francisco’s Coit Tower and Lombard Street, we passed a group of Japanese tourists exiting their bus. One of girls, wearing a striped shirt sort of similar to Norah’s striped dress, asked if she could take a selfie with Norah.
