From the article:
I’d asked Reed how he justified using a fiction (race) to measure reality (body shape). Reed responded that while, yes, race was a social construct, because people tended to think about themselves in predictable ways in relation to racial labels, race could still yield solid information.

Kountry Boys Bakery is the place to go if you are looking for this kind of food. The pastries are great, and my favorite is the caramel roll. Not only pastries, but they have kolaches and everything else up to and including burgers, fish, and chili. Recently added to the menu are doughnuts and milkshakes (vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate) made with Blue Bell ice cream (of course!) The food wouldn't taste as good if the customer service wasn't outstanding. Every-time me and my family eat at Kountry Boys we have experienced top-notch service. Mindy is a constant at the restaurant and offers some of the best customer service around these parts. I recommend this place to all my family and friends..

The service was excellent. We dined on a Saturday night and were seated right away. The selection of ingredients was varied and there was something for everyone. We will definitely be coming back.
