Matzoh story has legs *

Today's Daily News reports on this Passover's shortage of matzoh at chain stores such as Costco, Ralphs, Vons and Trader Joe's. I guess they read LAO.

"None of our stores are carrying it right now," said Jose Ramirez, manager of a Ralphs supermarket in Van Nuys. "Everyone's all out."

So some matzo seekers have turned to a Fairfax District landmark, Canter's Deli, where co-owner Terri Bloomgarden said more customers than ever before have been buying it.

* Even in the NYT: Los Angeles bureau chief Jennifer Steinhauer had a story on the matzoh shortage in Tuesday's paper.
