This is very reminiscent of some stories in an episode of John Oliver's "Last Week Tonight" on police accountability: Link to the summary (or view the whole thing): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zaD84DTGUL…
I love Al's Burger Shack's burgers. But their fries, seriously ?
I generally enjoy Top of the Hill's beers, but I literally shuddered when I read "blueberry wheat" in the title of this article. I hold with the Germans and their Reinheitsgebot, which permits the use of only water, malted barley, hops, and yeast, in beer production. (Though, admittedly, it's unclear how this regulation permits the wheat beers for which Germany is famous, and since it also states that these ingredients had to be added only while the wort was boiling, they might also frown on the finishing hops in the IPAs I love).
I just watched the first episode of the Netflix original "Cooked", and a good part of the episode deals with what Mr Reed calls "craft barbecue". Most interesting.
"Dude", as a white - maybe not a poor white - I feel empowered to offer my opinion. Yes, whites (poor or otherwise, or anyone else) - who thinks gays getting married is a bigger problem than climate change or growing economic disparity - IS stupid. (If you don't like that, if it sounds elitist or whatever - sorry, that doesn't mean it's not true). Trying to get these peoples' heads out of their b*tts is a challenge progressives must meet in order to change voting behavior.
Perhaps this isn't the main point of the review, but I'm put off by the condescending "these journalists are challenged to step out from behind the camera or keyboard and do something with their own lives beyond observing and reporting". To me, that "observing and reporting" are pretty damn important and courageous things to be doing with their own lives. In other words, I believe journalists, especially in war zones, are true heroes. They risk their lives, often for pretty poor pay, in an attempt to bring the TRUTH to those of us sitting at home in front of our computers or TVs. It's hard for me to think of many higher callings.
Corbie, sure. My point is, anyone who likes "Sidelong" needs to immediately go out and buy "Seven" as well.
