My first vote cast in a Republican governor's primary race was in June of 1974. I was 18. Meg Whitman didn't vote that year. She had a good excuse. She was two months shy of turning 18. Besides, she was a resident of Cold Springs Harbor in New York at the time.

Recipe for Portuguese donuts courtesy of Dorothy Indelicato

Driving the kids to school when they were attending Nile Garden Elementary School, I used to make a pit stop at the donut shop in the small neighborhood shopping center on Union Road at West Yosemite Avenue.

Deciding which startups are OK

I've never used Airbnb. I'm not proud of my failure to dive into the sharing economy. I know it's largely a function of middle age - I don't want to sleep in a stranger's spare bedroom, even if it's cheap - and of years of parlaying hotel rewards programs to my advantage.
