In Landlocked Milan, Try the Fish
Photo Milan has no sea. It has no river or lake, just a few ebbing canals. But this landlocked city is famous for some of the best seafood in the long, double-coasted peninsula of Italy, thanks mostly to the concrete warehouse of the Mercato Ittico that my guide, Sandra Ciciriello, had sneaked me inside. Ms. Ciciriello, a fishmonger who became the procurer and sommelier of Milan’s renowned Alice restaurant, has spent 30 years of achingly early mornings here at Italy’s biggest fish market, and she feels entitled to smuggle journalists into her turf   Read More ...

First, it was Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin using a government plane to fly to Fort Knox, where he viewed the eclipse with his wife, Louise Linton (Mnuchin denies that was the purpose of the trip, but an inspector general is reviewing it)   Read More ...
