Steve Lunetta: Modern piracy: No Jack Sparrows or Jolly Rogers

"First, your return to shore was not part of our negotiations nor our agreement, so I must do nothing. And secondly, you must be a pirate for the Pirate's Code to apply, and you're not.

Brian Koegle: Grassroots and chicken tortilla soup

Last week, I went to lunch with fellow "Right Here, Right Now" columnist Steve Lunetta at the Corner Bakery in Valencia, which incidentally has some of the best chicken tortilla soup in the Valley.
