Inside the Army laboratory at Fort Detrick, the government’s brain for biological defense, Bruce Edwards Ivins paused to memorialize his moment in the spotlight as the anthrax panic of 2001 reached its peak.

Dr. Ivins titled his e-mail message “In the lab” and attached photographs: the gaunt microbiologist bending over Petri dishes of anthrax, and colonies of the deadly bacteria, white commas against blood-red nutrient.

Outside, on that morning of Nov. 14, 2001, five people were dead or dying, a dozen more were sick and fearful thousands were flooding emergency rooms. The postal system was crippled; senators and Supreme Court justices had fled contaminated offices.

The chef told the London Independent where he likes to nosh for meals and after hours, revealing that his stomach takes him all over Manhattan. Boulud gets his pizza at Una Pizza Napoletana, his tapas at El Quinto Pino, Cuban sandwiches at Sandy’s Lechoneria in Spanish Harlem, báhn mì at Nicky’s, and “the best sushi after midnight” at Sushi Seki.

He described the vanilla ice cream and cotton-candy dessert there as “playful, witty and very American; it’s childish but very professional, too.” Childish but professional? We can live with that. We guess. Jeez.
