It's Queso Wars, baby! Next we'll be hearing Oompah-Loompah music at Del Taco. ;-)

Wings cost more than breasts, pork ribs cost more than tenderloin, and hamburger costs more than steak. It's the End Times. ;-)

The Economist ran a poll to probe whether David Brooks's comments last week in the NYT about a friend with a high school education not being able to determine what's on an Italianesque menu had any basis in reality. Have at it below.

Hear, hear!

[Edit: earlier coverage from the Herald-Sun:]

I should run for office locally on a platform supporting this needed improvement to Sunday drankin' in Durham. I'd also be in favor of:

1) Dexit (Durham will secede from North Carolina)

2) Forced emigration of "undesirables" to Cary (Eat at Joe's! will decide later later who's undesirable)

3) Negative parking rates inside and on the loop for food trucks and diners

4) Capping building heights in the downtown area to be no higher than the Hill (CCB) Building. Any buildings currently over that will be forced to take a "haircut"

5) At least one food cart downtown per block. Licensing fees will be managed and subsidies will start if needed until density and distribution reach desired targets.

Some will complain this may worsen downtown congestion. To address this:

6) Uber, Lyft, and similar services will be forbidden inside the loop. Punishment includes tar and feathering for drivers and passengers; additionally, any such driver who stops illegally in any street, alley, lane, driveway, yard, parking garage, or similar area within the entire city will be shot

7) A beardo tax of $25 will be implemented on any bearded male found inside the loop; this tax applies per visit or per 24 hour period, whichever is less

8) Additional crosswalks will be constructed mid-block for every block inside or adjoining the loop, and at least 7 equally-spaced pedestrian bridges will be constructed over the loop; said bridges will be illuminated in a style similar to the R. Kelly Bryant Pedestrian Bridge over 147

9) The speed limit on the loop will be increased to 65 MPH; speeds inside the loop will be reduced to 20 MPH, with the exception of Main, Chapel Hill, Roxboro, and Mangum streets, which will be 35 [n.b. to whomever runs the street light timing downtown: get the light staging fixed and keep it fixed, please!].

I know my supporters, and in fact anyone and everyone, will support these common sense measures.

Thank you for your support.

+Richard G​, I found you something to do with your liquor-aging barrel.



8 cups pure maple syrup
4 ounces Fernet-Branca or other fernet

Combine the maple syrup and Fernet-Branca in a 2-liter oak barrel. Store in a cool, dry place for 8 to 10 months.

Strain the syrup through a fine-mesh sieve lined with a damp cheescloth into a clean glass container. Using a funnel, transfer the strained syrup into glass jars or bottles with lids and label.

For best quality use within a year.
