  • Just for fun - Bernie Sandwiches wins New Hampshire

    Youtube ^ | 02/09/16 | Colbert
    You don't need to watch the whole 9 minutes. It's Stephen Colbert and I don't like him either, but his writers are pretty funny and he does deliver. It's his segment on the New Hampshire primary. Go forward to about 6 minutes in to just see the funny bit. It will be worth it. A tv news guy slipped and called him "Bernie Sandwiches," and Colbert produces a light hearted romp with it. We can all use a little laugh.

    It's been so cold this week, I come home tired and wanting comfort food. Hot sandwiches are quick and easy, and hit the spot on cold days. I've had a recipe in my collection for many years that was obviously photocopied from a book; but I can't remember which book. I know there used to be a Mealey's restaurant in Maryland, not far from Frederick, and perhaps that's where this recipe originated. Not gourmet food, but it's fast and sticks to your ribs: Mealey's Old Fashioned Club Sandwich Sauce: 2 T. Butter 2 T. all-purpose Flour 1 C. Milk 1...

    There’s a reason the text version of Camille Paglia’s opening statement at the Munk Debate, “Resolved: Men Are Obsolete” garnered 10K likes on Facebook and received more than one thousand comments at Time.com: it hit a nerve. It was a nerve that needed to be hit, and Paglia did it beautifully. Not only was her choice of words fitting, she delivered them with the perfect amount of exasperation. America must revisit its distorted view of gender equality, implored Paglia, and start being fair to the other half of the human race. Men’s success in fields such as medicine, engineering and...
  • On Free Speech, Sarah Palin and Mark Steyn are Right

    Is someone really violating your right of “free speech” if they’re not using the power of the state to censor you? What if they’re “only” trying to get you fired, shamed out of public life, universally reviled, and left as a laughingstock — all without taking even a moment to address the conservative’s underlying argument? To some, that’s just a battle of free speech (conservative comment) versus free speech (lefty efforts to ruin your life), and anyone who thinks otherwise needs to be reminded of the law, thank you very much. The other side of the argument – the Mark...
  • Best Sandwiches In America: The 10 Greatest Sandwiches In America

    AskMen ^ | Simon Majumdar
    I have long held that America’s greatest contribution to the culinary world is the sandwich. I’m well aware that the sandwich as we know it today dates back long before the time the country even came into existence (In fact, to the time when ancient Jewish sage, Hillel the Elder, first put lamb between soft matzah around 1 B.C.). The Americans have elevated slamming awesome stuff between bread into something of an art form, and few people would argue that some of the very best examples are to be found in the cities and at the roadsides of the United...

    Howard Richman has a nice piece over at the Ideal Taxes Association blog: In it, he says Governor Palin’s November 30th interview with Greta restores his faith “that there is intelligence left within the Republican Party.” He references Governor Palin’s line that “we’ve already gone over the fiscal cliff, now it’s about how hard we hit bottom.” Richman continues:

    The Atlantic ^ | December 3, 2012 | David Graham, associate editor
    Even as she fades from the national spotlight, the former vice-presidential contender gets plenty of love on the Internet. I'm going to let you in on a little journalism secret. Time was, political reporters knew that any post about Sarah from Alaska was any easy way to get eyeballs. (In one week in May 2010, I wrote three separate items under the rubric "Sarah Palin Real-Estate Watch." All were well-read.) Nowadays, the magic is gone. There's no serious talk of Palin 2016. There are no more reality TV shows. Her endorsement mojo has evaporated, and the term "Mama Grizzly" seldom...

    Las Vegas (CNN) – Though Sarah Palin has recently endorsed several political candidates, she has yet to give an official nod to Mitt Romney. And on Friday, as she rallied conservative bloggers toward “victory in 2012” –- Palin didn’t even mention Romney’s name. The former Alaska governor gave the keynote speech on the opening night of the RightOnline conference in Las Vegas -– a gathering of conservative leaders and new media activists. About 1,000 people descended on the city to attend the group’s fifth annual event. Much of Palin’s speech was aimed at encouraging the grassroots activists ahead of the...

    Pastrami lovers came out bright and early Friday morning to line up in front of Langer’s Deli in Westlake as the restaurant celebrates its 65th anniversary by giving away free sandwiches. By 7 a.m., nearly 40 people had formed a queue outside the eatery on the corner of South Alvarado and West 7th streets. “This is a way for the owner, Norm Langer, to show his appreciation to his customers and to the community at large for everything they’ve given him,” said spokesman John Schwada. On Friday and Saturday, customers will receive a free No. 19 sandwich, the deli’s most...

    Mark Kirkland is used to skeptics. He’s comfortable with critics. He’s unfazed by the reaction he typically gets the first time people hear about his invention: “Ewwwwwwww.” Kirkland, 50, of Salt Lake City, Utah, has dedicated more than a decade of his life to a single concept: The sandwich in a can. Or, actually, make that a few concepts: Sandwiches in a can. Pizza in a can. French toast in a can. Cinnamon rolls in a can. Why a can? Because, when combined with techniques similar to those used to preserve Meals Ready-to-Eat for soldiers, an aluminum can keeps food...

    U.S. inventors have dreamt up the ultimate in lunchtime convenience food for busy consumers - a sandwich in a can. The aptly named Candwich comes in three flavours - peanut butter and strawberry jam, peanut butter and grape jam and barbecue chicken - and is being sold in vending machines across Utah. Marketed at people on the go including students, construction workers and 'soccer moms', the canned sandwiches do not require refrigeration and have a long shelf life.

    Situated in a tiny town that you'd miss if you blink, I have found the best sandwich I've ever eaten in my life! We were coming home to Cypress from a weekend in Austin, and decided to take a detour and drive down some country roads to do some exploring. We stumbled upon Royers Round Top Cafe in Round Top, Texas (population 77) near Brenham. The sandwich that I have fallen head over heels in love with is called The Grilled Shrimp BLT with a special OMG next to the title

    Starbucks axes sandwiches as part of fix By ELIZABETH M. GILLESPIE, AP Business Writer 19 minutes ago The scent of ham, eggs, cheese and bacon will soon stop competing with the aroma of coffee in Starbucks stores as hot breakfast sandwiches become the first casualty of the company's battle to win back customers. The sandwiches, which will disappear by this fall, boost a typical store's annual revenue by $35,000, so pulling them off the menu will cost at first. Chairman and Chief Executive Howard Schultz said that proves the company isn't letting the soft economy distract it from committing to...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Forget the tigers, the elephants and the dancing bears. Cirque du Soleil will never travel the world with performing animals. "We don't agree with the way the animals are dressed to do their tricks. We prefer to give jobs to human beings," said Pierre Parisien from the renowned Quebec troupe that has inspired a circus renaissance around the globe. "They are animals, not performers. They should be in the jungle," the artistic director of the troupe's "Saltimbanco" show told Reuters after its London opening this week. "We do not agree with the way they are trained...

    US military scientists have developed a new battlefield weapon: the indestructible sandwich. It can survive air drops and rough handling to stay fresh for up to three years, even in tropical conditions. Eventually, it is expected to follow freeze-dried coffee, dehydrated egg and processed cheese from the battlefield on to supermarket shelves. So far, only pepperoni and barbecued chicken varieties have been developed. Soldiers who have tasted them gave a clipped military verdict: "Acceptable". Scientists are now working on indestructible pocket pizzas, cream-filled bagels, and peanut butter sandwiches. The sandwiches are designed to stay fresh for up to three years...
