Ever feel like a frog in a pot of water? 
Here in the U.S., we have food safety regulations — a lot of them. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is responsible for making sure processed foods (and a bunch of other stuff) adhere to…

Oh, good. My fear of missing out was really starting to whisper to me. Glad I can just tune that one out. Now, if more people would freaking stop using FB as their party planning platform, we could actually send FB a message to stop this jackassery.
Facebook is going to start forcing ads to appear for all users of its desktop website, even if they use ad-blocking software.

Some test pics off my new dive camera; this is a whole new ballgame after using a GoPro for so long. This is some early spring growth on my dock. #scuba #boatlife

Well, that was even more depressing than I thought it would be.

Somebody please tell me this is a joke with a punchline to be revealed in a few days.
The president of Emory University has met with 40 to 50 student demonstrators who said they were concerned and frightened after someone wrote 'Trump 2016' .

Rather prescient and observant. A total must-watch if you can't be bothered to read the book. Wolf faults the second Bush administration rather heavily, but the trends have been present since the 50s and 60s, really taking hold under Reagan's Grenada and Iran-Contra campaigns. Specifically, Reagan's explicit efforts to do an end-run around the Abrams Doctrine and usurp power for the executive branch.

And lest you think the Obama Administration fared any better, his administration has prosecuted more whistleblowers than all administrations ever combined. The march of concentration of power in the executive branch continues unabated. The closing down of America continues and, while Wolf waxes optimistic, eight years later, I think it is actually too late.

+Fen I was inspired to post this because of your growing cynicism in the wake of the DNC leak. Wolf talks about how the ruling elites are increasingly dismissive, even derisive, of the electorate.

"Elektra: Assassin" was my entree into comics and graphic novels, setting the bar ridiculously high for me. It was also my entree into stories that leave me wondering, "What the hell did I just experience?!"

Whitbrook's review is quite spot on, but doesn't give Sienkiewicz's art the coverage it deserves. Yes, Frank Miller is batshit crazy, but the art in this book is... sublime. Full page watercolors with wet washes and dry brush. You could reasonably skip the storyline in favor of the art. But the story is just too much acid-trip craziness to miss.

I'm very happy that the book finally got reprinted. If you haven't read this, I highly suggest it.
Season two of Daredevil will introduce Elektra, the Greek assassin who’s Matt Murdock’s lover and sometime adversary. Her creator, Frank Miller, has told interviewers that the show could never bring his vision of Elektra to life. And he’s right—because no one could ever match the mindbending absurdist nightmare that Miller conjured in his seminal work on the character, Elektra: Assassin.

About what you would expect from the look of the place. It's Sysco food shoddily heated up, overcooked, bland, dried out, and a total gut brick. I'm beginning to think that there is a law in the Skagit Valley that all sandwiches have to suck, and Farmhouse is no exception. It's become almost a running joke and a dare to myself. How hard is it to make a sandwich that doesn't suck? The Reuben, Monte Cristo, chicken strips, and potato strips were really bad. My dinner companion and I ordered a spread of food to sample, on the off chance something would be tasty. Newp. I ordered a Manhattan and what came was a Manhattan only in name; tasted like floor stripper (don't ask how I know the taste). The staff were really friendly and attentive, so an extra star for them.

Far and away the best restaurant in town. I've been in here multiple times and wandered through the menus and cocktails. All of the cocktails are top notch, even if some are too sweet for my palate; that's just me, though. The bartenders happily tweak to your liking. Every single thing on the menu that I have eaten is amazing. I am no fan of fries, but I always eat all of the fries with my entree. That are *that good.* The clam chowder blows away any other chowder anywhere. And I lived in Boston; I have some data points to draw upon. I make my own killer clam chowder and I can't even get close to A'Town's. This is truly the one dish you must try if you come through Anacortes. Actually, it's worth a drive just for the chowder.* All the staff are on their A-game (no pun intended), professional, and welcoming. You won't sit with an empty glass even when it's busy. The music is played at a volume low enough to ignore, but is still excellently curated so you'll want to pay attention anyway. If I'm looking for complaints*, I guess it can be hard to get in here sometimes. If you're reasonably sure you want to come here, make the reservation. Even when crowded, though, the volume level stays completely conversational. You might be inclined to sticker shock if you're frugal. Don't worry. The portions are generous and even appetizers are big enough to share. You will not leave hungry. *Caveats: fresh, quality, "real" ingredients denote variability to some degree. Some variability is to be expected.

I bought my house through Harlan and he was great then. What was even more surprising was Harlan's performance and advocacy of me when I sold that same house through Harlan. From initial consideration of selling to assistance with preparation to the sale to the closing, all of my expectations were exceeded. Everything was performed on a timeline that could cause whiplash, but in a good way! Throughout the entire process, Harlan was helpful and demonstrated deep knowledge and understanding of the Portland market. If I were to remain in Portland, I would absolutely use him again for any purchase or sale.

Fair pizza, great service. The pizza reminds me a Pizza Hut pan pizza, but made with much better ingredients. Crust could have been more crispy; it was a touch underdone.

Worst Reuben ever with the service to match. I have gone in here three times just to give them the benefit of the doubt of a bad day. I've ordered the Reuben twice; each time was *one* thin slice of corned beef folded in half on soggy, barely warmed up bread, with unmelted cheese, and a wet mess of kraut. I've had some bad Reubens, but this one is singularly bad. Each time I have gone in here, I sat at the bar waiting for 10 to 12 minutes, without ever being offered a drink, despite the bartender standing within three feet of me. Each time, people walked in after me, and got their beer before they sat down. The incongruity here is that they own the music venue next door and those bartenders are *ON*. Despite moving around the venue throughout a busy night, my drink never got empty and they all knew what I was drinking. The disparity in service is amazing.

Good service, good sweet potato fries and maduros. Really lame Cubano and Mai Tai. Couldn't even bother to finish them. The Mai Tai tasted like a sugar bomb of cheap fruit juice; there may have been a bottle of alcohol in the same room when it was made. The Cubano was made with dried out, bland pork, bland ham, tasteless Swiss cheese, a scant smattering of bland diced pickles, and yellow mustard (?!)(did you just pick the cheapest ingredients possible and hope nobody would notice?). At least the sandwich was pressed thin. But that's all that can be said for it.

Amazing food. The Cubano is the best I have had anywhere. Don't miss the fried plantains. Perfect combination of crispy and tender, and the aioli is good enough to eat with a spoon. So far, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The atmosphere is like a cafe with emphasis on the food. My only "complaint" is that I wished I lived closer.
