Re: Marriage is Totally Gay

In the case that Jack won before the Supreme Court, the state admitted that cake artists—including Jack—are free to decline to create custom cakes with a “specific design” that they will not make for anyone. Freedom of contract is just like Jim Crow. Not what I claimed, but you likely know that alr...

Re: Inequality

It is true that one more tier and I’d be expected to pull more hours. The thing here is 40 hours managed tightly for hourly, then salaried with 40 but considerable flexibility for whole lot of roles, then above that lots more. VP tier is the danger zone - and also where comp structures really shift...

There's a tiny Greek Cafe down the road from my house that I've never been to, and now I'm regretting it.

My local is every Thursday at Goodies Drive In.

If you’re still looking, find out where & when the local cruise night is and go ask around. Someone will know somebody who is an expert on that exact car.

1/4 of a raw green bell pepper stuffed with cottage cheese and topped with cracked pepper is a damned fine low cal snack.

Re: You Learn Something New Every Day

onions and bell peppers are fine as ingredients if done right. Philly cheese steak, fajitas, in chinese food. Onions are good in a lot of other circumstances. Green bell peppers are at best less-good outside of cooked dishes. But badly done bell-pepper-based-spaghetti sauce is the worst. Also green...

Re: When journalism goes bad

I saw one just a few years ago while driving home from work. So bright it actually made daylight brighter. I half expected to hear an explosion.

In Pixar's movie "Inside Out" (a little girl's emotions are all individual characters living inside her head), "Disgust" takes over when the little girl's dad tries feeding her broccoli. But in many other countries, including Japan, broccoli does not have the same grossness factor it does here, so ...
