My Yonah Schimmel Guilt: I have to admit that when I was little, David Berger, the great grandson of the original owners [of Yonah Schimmel] lived in my apartment building. He was bigger than me although a year younger (I was maybe 12 or 13) and he was teasing my then girlfriend in the park below my window and her friends. Not knowing of his famous great-grandparents, I proceeded to beat him up defending the honor of my girlfriend (and scoring major brownie points with her and her friends). So maybe every time I enjoy a knish is my way of apologizing." [CH]
