the show--and the deli--must go on
In the early morning hours of February 7th, the Carnegie Deli experienced its most unusual takeout order: armed robbers wanted the cash.
The deli always stayed open until 4 a.m. and then re-opened its doors at 6 a.m. The seven robbers must have canvassed the place or received an inside tip about the window of opportunity because the holdup occurred at 4:45 a.m.
The thieves entered through a fire exit, surprising Sam Steiner, Leo's brother, and two dishwashers, and a deliveryman.
A thug toting a sawed-off shotgun struck Steiner in the eye and ordered him and the staff on the ground with the menacing threat, "Or we'll blow you away."
The robbers forced open the cash register and took the night's receipts. Then the gang fled into the deserted street. The robbers were never identified . . .
But Leo Steiner had the last word:
"the schmucks took the money and left the pastrami!"

XML Schemas To many XML believers and purists, there’s been a canker at the heart of the beautiful rose that is XML since its very inception. Worse still, some believe that canker was put there by design. That canker is, of course, the Document Type Definition, or DTD, that defines the very essence of XML. DTDs are “foreign imports” based on...
