But, unfortunately, a few bad apples have given the industry a bad name by being just a little misleading in their promises that hot singles and easy money are just a click away. What would banner ads look like in a world where they were required to tell the honest truth? We offered a prize to whoever has the Photoshop skills to show us.
"Over the past few decades, portion sizes of everything from muffins to sandwiches have grown considerably. Unfortunately, America’s waistbands have reacted accordingly. In the 1970s, around 47 percent of Americans were overweight or obese; now 66 percent of us are. In addition, the number of just obese people has doubled, from 15 percent of our population to 30 percent."
Here is a little quiz I'm sure you'll fail.
" The War on Drugs has become the longest and most costly war in American history, the question has become, how much more can the country endure?
Inspired by the death of four family members from "legal drugs" Texas filmmaker Kevin Booth sets out to discover why the Drug War has become such a big failure.
Three and a half years in the making, the film follows gang members, former DEA agents, CIA officers, narcotics officers, judges, politicians, prisoners and celebrities."
There used to be a place near 17th and Summit (at the top of the hill on the Westside) called the Sunray Cafe. The guy who owned the place did everything. He seated you, took your orders, and cooked for you. The place had a couple entree choices and a couple salad choices written on a small blackboard. The Sunray was BYOB and had only4 or 5 tables. I think the owner's name was Yanni and he would cook right in front of you. The place was only open in the summer since Yanni traveled back to Greece for the winter. Very cool place.
Also, I remember a place on Main St. in the strip down from Jardine's called George's Sausage and Cheese Shop. Which is exactly what it was and it was only open for lunch. The owner George Destios (I think) would make one awesome entree per day. If you didn't want that, you ate a deli sandwich. I hear he cooks one night a week (Monday I think) down at Grinders. I really need to get down there. Maybe I'll go tonight.
These places served some of the most memorable meals I have ever eaten. I am a big fan of this new-old trend in dining.
