On the Airports cashing in on terror checks, I realize now that there's a whole industry out there of inconveniences that are put upon us, and then ways to buy your way out of the problem. How interesting.

What would I eat? I think I'm making my mom's baked mac and cheese for dinner. It's time for some comfort.

Also, in case you don't hear it enough - thank you for the links you post. They always make me think, and often make me wonder in the best of ways.

-->Today I had a mad craving for a McRib, which I haven't had in at least a decade. So I had one. It was tasty, but not as good as I remember. So I won't need to have another one for a decade.

I am also craving Bottle Caps. These are hard to come by. Every shop for miles around has all the other sugary Wonka candies--SweeTarts, Spree, Nerds--but no Bottle Caps. It is a tragedy.

>>Energy Committee Chairman Candidate Says God Promised no More Catastrophic Climate Change after Noah<<

Well, his reading of the story isn't quite what the Bible says. But I'd bet a lot that he actually hasn't read Genesis all the way through, anyway.

All my grandmothers greek dishes - dolmades (no lemon sauce, fresh leaves, good steak), keftedes, string beans with tomato, village salad from the garden - and homemade apple pie for desert.
