On How To Make Veggie And Chicken Stock

I recognize those ziplocs of frozen vegetable trash -- I have the same thing in my tiny apartment freezer, waiting to be given to my worm composter.

Did he have an *attractive* chronicler of society in mind? I mean, everyone in the past was totally uggo -- isn't that like common knowledge, and pretty much built in to our critical faculties?
Now that I've image-searched Mr. Franzen, I'm surprised I disliked The Corrections so much. The writing must have really worked hard to overcome my innate sympathy for such a nice-looking boy.

On Sarah Palin the TV Star Exposes Sarah Palin the Fake Hunter

Her amateurishness seemed clear from the commercials but I couldn't bring myself to actually watch this or the trapshooting episode. So thanks for this!

Is there *anything* pandas do that seems designed to propagate the species? Pandas are the worst.
