The worst part of any major terrorist attack--speaking strictly as someone not directly affected--is the inevitable, monumental avalanche of stupidity that follows in its wake.

I think the stupidity was already there and was happening anyway. The attack just made us focus on the stupidity. "LOOK AT ME!"

The level of ignorance and bigotry displayed by the +CNN​​ hosts is off-the-scale mind-blowing. No wonder I don't go to that network for news.

Not much of a photo as I took it at "full zoom" on my cheapo Moto E, but had my first ND (fourth-generation Mazda MX-5/Miata) sighting yesterday.

Unimpressive hole in the ground, impressive hole left in your wallet to go see it. A half hour walking geology lecture, informationally equivalent to five minutes on Wikipedia, spent trying to avoid tripping over people's wayward toddlers and being blinded by the flashes of clueless wannabe photographers who don't understand they're totally wasting their time. The caves themselves are utterly uninspiring, with a meager handful of stalactites here and there, nothing like the awe inspiring natural "cathedrals" seen in other limestone caves elsewhere in the world. To be avoided unless you can't tell a lackluster tourist trap from a hole in the ground.

Colleague of mine just went there and made a point of telling me first thing this morning about it. Prices were "insane" (in some cases 3x the comparable item at Fish Market Restaurant), and the food made him sick later that night.

Couldn't find an open table so sat down the bar for a drink while we waited. Ended up eating there and along the way enjoyed a wonderful conversational encounter with some locals. Fish and chips and Irish stew both excellent; whiskey pour was generous; service friendly and welcoming. A delightful evening!

Friendly service and the price of argon was less than half of what it was from the other "brand A" nearby. I wish I'd known about this place sooner!

A great little hidden neighborhood gem. The grilled chicken is succulent and perfectly seasoned. The pupusas and empanadas are great appetizers as well. The $6.95 lunch specials would be a deal at twice the price. Highly recommended!
