The only pizza toppings needed are pepperoni, bacon and/or barbeque chicken.

Barbecue chicken pizza is the market.

All I can think of is Episiarch arguing about proper pizza. It was nauseating. Plus he was wrong. So there was that.

What? He has good taste in pizza. Tipped me off that Blaze Pizza is surprisingly not terrible. (But they don’t deliver.)

I'm surprised at how you can throw just about anything on a pizza and if you get it right it's amazing. Taco pizza, cheeseburger pizza, and seafood pizzas have all blown me away partly due to my low expectations.

I haven’t had Uno’s per se, but there is a chain in the Chicago Milwaukee corridor that is basically old style Pizza Hut (ie sit down fastish casualish) for Uno style deep dish pizza, and I quite liked it. But it is a pie based on pizza, not a true pizza. It doesn’t have toppings on a round loaf, it has fillings and layers.

This is true. Pizzas are like tacos in that way (though tacos tend to be more resilient to weird choices, I think).

I don't think I could try seafood pizza though.

In the straight pizza world, Papa John's tastes like pizza but with a slightly offputting flavor to the sauce, and subpar crust.
Yup. Overly sweet and offputting, and the pizzas were always remarkably greasy. I think it may have gotten worse in the 90s, but it was definitely second-rate at best by the late 90s.

Man who sent prostitutes to neighbors' door while he watched from his house is sentenced to 4 years in prison
The married couple felt afraid and captive in their own home for nearly four years.

About 30 times each year, women would show up on their front porch late at night or early in the morning. They would strip and then, seeking payment, would try to open the front door or ring the doorbell, waking the Elkhorn couple’s two young children.

It caused marital stress and affected their professional lives.

The visits and the women’s actions were orchestrated by a neighbor across the street: Douglas Goldsberry, who masturbated while watching from his kitchen.

It's interesting that he was charged with pandering. I was wondering "Exactly what do you charge someone with for that anyway?"

What the fuck. Weinstein used ex-Mossad agents to track down journos and women who might squeal on him.

Interesting background, but almost unreadable.

A staff writer, rather than a clear incompetent, should have written it.

Carr “wrote a number of critical/unflattering articles about HW over the years,” the document says, “none of which touched on the topic of women (due to fear of HW’s retaliation, according to HW).”

Gibberish:

Wallace, the reporter for New York, said that he was suspicious when he received the call from the Black Cube operative using the pseudonym Anna, because Weinstein had already requested a meeting with Wallace; Adam Moss, the editor-in-chief of New York; David Boies; and a representative from Kroll. The intention, Wallace assumed, was to “come in with dossiers slagging various women and me.” Moss declined the meeting.

Well, semicolons can be used in a list of items which individually contain colons, so it's not wrong, but it's still ugly.
