I thought this was going to be about falsely-labelled fish. (Same diff, I guess. And I probably would have enjoyed it just as much. Which is quite a bit.)
@whizz_dumb If us liberals were really tolerant as we say we are, we would fight for this poor man's right to marry his gun!
Whole series of Choire doing weird twitter bits please.

@C_Webb This pocket is full of ice. This pocket is full of barbecue sauce. This pocket is full of himalayan salt. This pocket is full of pre-muddled mint. This pocket is full of fresh mint, and also a mini-muddler, in case the other mint gets soggy.

REI is great. It's less expensive if you are a member, they have informative lectures about wildlife and training for various outdoor activities, service shops for bikes &c., they help organize volunteer wilderness preservation activities, and the employees know their shit.
My beef is with Matt for pushing the comment count enough to trick me into reading about this "controversy".
@ContainsHotLiquid I agree! The main thrust of the review seemed less "get this flyover shit out of my town" and more "this guy is a scam artist selling fried snake oil."
Wells bends over backwards to defend (what I guess we'd call?) "down-home" American cooking, and to compare Fieri's product to that -- pointedly mentioning, and holding up as touchstones, dishes from outside of New York.
It's kind of the opposite of "defend N.Y. [food culture] from America [n food culture]," if anything. It's like, "defend ['real'] America [n cuisine] from Times Square [as a stand-in for capitalism, or whatever, probably]"!
What about the Awl smug, since it hasn't had to migrate to a Tumblr?
Nope. Still boring.
