I love Lewis Black. This is mostly a rant on corporate behemoths who are using the word "artisanal" to sell their product.


"Here's a good rule of thumb," concludes Black. "If your product is served by dumping it out of a plastic bag into a bowl of microwaved chili, it's not artisan. If it takes less than 30 minutes to make and deliver, it's not food."

Never give up! Never surrender!

You cannot legislate compassion into your fellow man (or woman, as the case may be), but we should at least attempt to create a society in which each individual has the opportunity to realize his or her potential. If we meet our citizens' needs for Health Care and Education, everything else will take care of itself. --Me
