More Ann Arbor Connections: On Sep. 30-Oct. 1, Russ Linden went to Ann Arbor with his and Jackie's son Josh, and Josh's partner, Jillian. Another great Michigan football game, more food from Zingerman's deli, and (best of all) more time with cousins. Here they are with Stephanie Rowden and Andy Kirshner.
