Photo of the Day

This photograph is from Dr. Mike's travels in the deep dark jungles of Belize. The woodcut depicts the ancient Mayan Bagel Goddess, highly revered for centuries throughout Pre-colonial Central America. Legend has it her crusts were always firm, her centers always soft, and her holes always symmetric.

In this image she lifts the top of the bagel, and its underside emits a splendor of holy light which bathes the congregation of her Temple (not shown here). Note the absence of cream cheese or other topping which might dilute the bagel’s purity.

It is fortunate for us that we have an anthropologist among us to explain these primitive Mayan things. Which came first? Their round calendar or their round bagel? Altman's Deli on East Lombard Street would like to know.
