Tony in Nicaragua

 

A writer should know better!

 

Anthony Bourdain, former chef and now a Travel Channel writer, has the challenge of "uncovering the best in culinary cuisine across the world," according to his Travel Channel PR people.

 

He's doing that with lots of personal interest. But on a recent trip to Nicaragua, he described the interest in some foods by claiming they were popular among "large amounts of people."

 

Tony…people don't come in AMOUNTS. People are individuals; they're NUMBERS. Water, air, and beer come in amounts. Not people.

Thanksgiving

 

What a strange name in the 21st century!

 

The very first Thanksgiving was apparently a "giving of thanks/gratitude" for an abundant harvest and ample food for the winter. But where do we see much thanks these days? Thanksgiving is little more than a popular holiday from work, and a chance to eat too much and fall asleep watching football.
