So there I was, having my Sunday-morning nosh at the Farmer's Market, reading "Apples and Oranges" by Judith Gingold (May 3). Wishing to help stranded New York intellectuals, I went over to the newsstand to see if Le Monde or the Washington Post was available. Le Monde, yes, but alas, not the Washington Post.
However, I saw copies of the Wall Street Journal, Pravda, the Manchester Guardian, the New York Review of Books (aha!), the New York Times (again aha!) and Al Ahram, in addition to a number of other publications from around the world. The stand has lots of pornography, too, without footnotes, so I ignored that section.
