      Moscow’s food stores, formerly famed for bare shelves and long lines, are now kept stocked with fresh champignons and greens — even in the freeze a year ago that almost paralyzed much of the capital, with temperatures from 6 below zero to 22 below for more than a week.

  8. griller
    • 2007 January 31, Mark Bittman, “The Boring Old Broiler Turns Out to Be a Superstar”, New York Times:
      Almost anything, although some foods are more cooperative than others: meat of all kinds, especially steaks and chops; fish, from steaks like tuna or swordfish to fillets both thick and thin; shellfish; chicken (usually best without skin, which, as every experienced griller knows, readily catches fire); and even vegetables, especially tomatoes, peppers and chilies.

      This is handled most insightfully in a segment in which a pair of co-workers (Robyn Myhr and the versatile Mr. Knowles) flirt with adultery while fending off self-loathing — though I doubt that many would-be philanderers face each other with this degree of emotional honesty.
  11. littlenecks

  14. molinillos
  15. nonbasketball
    • 2007 January 31, Liz Robbins, “Bryant Barred for One Game After Hard Hit”, New York Times:
      To draw a conclusion like that lets me think a nonbasketball player probably made the decision on this particular act.”

  22. popularizer
    • 2007 January 31, Samuel G. Freedman, “History Teacher Becomes Podcast Celebrity”, New York Times:
      In the digital era, this self-taught amateur has emerged as a figure somewhat akin to Will Durant in books or Jacob Bronowski on public television, an effective and engaging popularizer.

Even the other highly rated personal podcasts, like “Word Nerds” and “Grammar Girl,” appeal to dependably large audiences for etymology and grammar.

  28. resewn
    • 2007 January 31, “Recycle, but Don’t Iron (2 Letters)”, New York Times:

  37. voyeuristically
    • 2007 January 31, Ginia Bellafante, “Sally Mann Portrait in Which She’s the Star”, New York Times:
      But Ms. Mann’s images arrived just as the country was beginning to fall deeper and deeper under the thrall of a new culture of obsessive child-rearing, and she seemed, however voyeuristically, merely to be letting her children be.
