This week's meeting of the League Against Sushi-Expanding Rolls will now come to order. Let the record show that for the 212th consecutive week, LASER is meeting at Nobu's in University City. While we await our nigiri sushi — I ordered twice as much salmon as usual because it's so good, especially with that little crescent-moon of onion atop it — a reminder that at the last meeting we passed, by unanimous vote, Resolution No. 104: "The League Against Sushi-Expanding Rolls (LASER) hereby resolves that no 'sushi roll' set on fire at the table or delivered to the table already flaming shall be considered actual sushi." Today's first order of business — after Hank stops bogarting the mackerel — is to vote on Resolution No. 105: "The League of Sushi- Expanding Rolls (LASER) hereby resolves that no 'sushi roll' that contains anything referred to as 'tempura crunch' shall be considered actual sushi." All in favor, raise your chopsticks. All opposed? The motion passes unanimously. The final order of business is to choose a location for next week's LASER meeting. Can anyone suggest a sushi restaurant with fresher fish, better attention to detail and a more honest pursuit of the noble art of sushi than Nobu's? I didn't think so. Meeting adjourned.
