Wow. +***** makes wonderfully cogent arguments and, more important, suggestions about the stealing-music kerfluffle, http://gordonwithers.com/post/25597091567/reflections-on-white-lowery-and-a-way-forward

I keep forgetting to mention this app. Turn-by-turn nav, traffic alerts, cop sightings, and now gas stations. Awesome. http://lifehacker.com/5870122/the-best-turn+by+turn-navigation-app-for-iphone?tag=apps/navigation

Cantaloupe recalls keep local grocers on high alert |
www.todaysthv.com

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- Recent recalls of cantaloupe tainted with listeria have urged grocers all over the nation to inspect their produ

the decor screams "old sf"...and the 100-item single malt scotch menu screams "don't ever leave." the steaks are dependable, the sides traditional, but it's the experience you'll go for more than the food. oh, and the scotch.

it's funny that a place that does nonstandard mexican fare so exceptionally stumbles a bit on the traditional dishes. while enchiladas and tacos are utterly unremarkable, lesser-seen entrees like the zincronazadas are outstanding. it's a beautiful place, but without a more reliable menu it's a bit hard to count on.

while the seafood dishes at this hawaiian fusion grill are as outstanding as you'd expect, other grilled items fail to impress. when you drop $30 on a filet mignon that bears an uncanny resemblance to a hockey puck, you know something ain't right. snooty service just seals the deal: it's a repository for your expense account. bring your out-of-town vp of marketing here and send him on a trip through the extensive sake menu (hey, maybe you'll get a promotion out of the deal) but for heaven's sake don't pay your own way.

there's nothing really out of the ordinary here, but the traditional italian dishes are utterly competent, with generous portions and a fair variety. as one of the only upscale lunch spots in its area, it tends to be too busy at lunch for the servers (and perhaps the chef) to handle. so the food rating reflects the spotty quality at lunch, but dinner excursions have been much more satisfying.

wonderfully fresh mexican fare at this counter restaurant, and the light, airy decor underscores the authenticity. while the freshness is outstanding, the food itself is nothing special.

still one of the best indian restaurants in the bay area -- and not just because of their fantastic retractable roof. food is excellent, with generous portions and top-notch service. there's nothing here really outside the indian formula, but it's an utterly dependable place -- a rarity when so many indian restaurants are hit-or-miss.

this isn't the cheapest tapas place you'll find, nor the coziest. but fonda's upscale take on spanish food is worth every penny of the somewhat steep prices. dishes taste almost eerily fresh; at the very least, don't miss the bright, crisp guacamole or the almost zen-like simplicity of the mango slices with rum. and the place is no slouch in the drink department, either: the key lime caipirinha is not for the faint of heart, and the sangria avoids the sickly sweetness common to the drink. the atmosphere can get a bit crazy on the weekends, but it doesn't seem to affect the excellent service on
