Let's hope there's pastrami in heaven

Our condolences to the family of Langer's Delicatessen founder Albert J. Langer, who died Sunday at 94. Langer bought a small deli in 1947 and started turning out the pastrami sandwiches that Nora Ephron called "the finest in the world and in short, a work of art."

Sigh. I read the obit in the Times this morning too.

Langer's has the BEST pastrami this side of Brent's Deli in Northridge!

Have Mercy, could not say it better!

Truly a king of kings. Los Angeles is poorer today for the loss of this legend.
