Daytripper: Country Club Plaza

Only in the midwest would a major point of interest be a glorified outdoor mall.

Just sad.

Queen Lizzy's brings British fare to Lawrence

Helluva opening day -- Queen Lizzy's went through TWO DAYS supply of fish and chips in 90 MINUTES! Had to close for the day, unfortunately -- but that's a great problem to have (and the reason why we do soft open, to work these things out)!

Resupply order has been quadrupled, and Queen Lizzy's will be open again tomorrow at 11:30.

*sigh* Kansas.

When soft news squeezes out the hard

The problem is that Ronald Reagan removed the stipulation that broadcasters had to "act in the public interest" in 1987. It was changed that the market should dictate broadcast content, which has led to the tabloid-ification of our journalism in the effort to put "asses in seats" for corporate advertising.

United 93

For most of the country, 9/11 was something that happened on television....and happened in places they've only seen on television or in the movies anyway. Films like this are just going to be added to their fictional experience of the events.

I was living in NYC on 9/11 ... and I remember saying to a friend that I'll know when things get back to normal when the rest of the country goes back to hating New York. What I didn't envision was the "flyover states" holding on to this as "their" if watching it on TV makes them victims.

'V for Vendetta' is S for Subversive

Another reviewer who completely misses the point that the original graphic novel was written in the early 80s, and was a satirical criticism of Thatcher's Britain, not anything related to our current situation.

Intimacy and incest -- Small town sex

I think we need to beat the living hell out of Darrin Star and Sarah Jessica Parker, if for nothing else than creating a horde of insipid twentysomething girls who think that they're Carrie Bradshaw and set out to write a "sex column".

First Behunek's blog and now this. Jesus.
