Alexander Hamilton was, ahem, "intimate friends" with Charlestonian John Laurens.
I saw the headline and thought, 'This outta be hilarious. A liberal rag talking about gun control. Always good for a laugh.' However, I at least feel they gave equal time to BOTH sides of the issue. I was pleasantly surprised. Gun owners were not slanted to be red neck idiots with a fourth grade education. Because of this fairness, I actually read the entire article. I disagreed with many aspects, but read them with a seriousness due to this issue.
Thank You for a nice surprise and, frankly, a fair article that allows ME to make the opinion instead of trying to force feed it to me.
Chef Kevin is going to kill it folks go see him and the crew often for your oyster and other seafood fix. He's the real deal and knows his stuff. Looking forward to the opening Chef!!
Can't wait to read your write ups!
Nice review, but author should be advised both males and females have X chromosomes.
Foghorn, this comes from sound bites they get from the biased media because they are too lazy to do research. Plus, if MSNBC says it, it has to be true
Well said Chef.. I am really looking forward to the Monday Gras dinner coming up on the 27th!
Thank you for the post. I too am a product of love between and Iranian and Latina. My folks met in the early 70's. she thought he was Mexican (boy was she wrong). They've been married for over 45 years. My first name is Steve and last name is rooted in Arabic. Growing up in TX, everyone assumed I was Mexican. Which was partially true. As a kid, I got called "Wet Back", "Beaner" and even got called "Camel Jockey". Ignorance abound. I had a very strong Latin influence as a kid (living in TX). Less so from the Persian side, other than the food. :) It wasn't until I went to a Catholic College and had an opportunity to go to attend Friday Prayers (which was enlightening to learn about) and I also took a class on the History of Modern Iran which was eye-opening. So, education is so important. But, perhaps more important I feel... Is the question you ask. "Where are you really from"? I recently had my DNA done and found that I was quite the mix. 30% European (Spanish/Italian/Greek/ Portuguese, but snippets of European Jew, and other Eastern European countries). I'm over 33% Caucus, 14% native american, less than 5% African. Those were the main genetic roots. I think the more that we truly learn about our roots, the easier it will be to share our similarities...
I think I see a burgeoning business opportunity for Mike Kulick.
Looks like a great project to help frame corner of across from Marion Sq
See if this will help: http://www.ibtimes.com/donald-trump-racist…
The President's spokesperson says, "again the lying news media misquotes a Republican leader - Senator Graham, representing the U.S. in Germany said 'the year of KISSING Russia on the ass."
I especially like the hill and meadow in the background of the architect's rendering of the building.
editor's day off?
Thanks for not killing us by using science.
Great article! Can't wait for Herd to open!!!
Yes Craig Deihl is a great chef, local star and all-around "nice guy", it's great that he is "chef at Cypress and Artisan Meat Share and a founding member of the Butcher's Guild," but if he's a superstar and can't pass regulations that other locals have been able to accomplish in the course of almost a year it seems that he has some deficiencies the others don't or he's a whining prima-dona, or the victim of well-meaning but clueless sycophants writing a supportive column.
Much as I dislike Trumps personality - he seems to be the target of continual ad-hominem attacks that are blowing smoke over his political performance:
(1) Improving background checks for travelers from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Libya - has got to be a useful thing right? Apart from inconveniencing the good guys who might be travelling from those countries it will give the US time to put a decent system in place to seriously inconvenience the bad guys. The naivety of people who think that everyone from these countries must be *friendly* is amazing.
(2) ILLEGAL immigrants are people that are breaking the law. They are criminals by definition. IMHO *legal* immigrants are a good thing and boost the American economy. Trump completely supports legal migrants but is trying to prevent ILLEGALS -- the same focus as previous President. Personally, I think building a physical wall is a daft idea but putting the interests of Americans and American immigrants above those of the illegals is something else I'm amazed people are offended by.
(3) Air Force One - A million day? Wow. Various news sources are reporting that the Trump Administration has already negotiated a reduced price of over a $1Billion (which represent nearly 3 years of free flights on this plane) and there is talk of completely cancelling the second plane. Something that no other president as even considered to reduce costs. I also think that of Trump flew on his own plane -- that would be complained about as a conflict of interest. So taking every previous Presidents travel plan and reducing costs is a good thing.
Am I "appalled at the blatant hypocrisy"? No.
Do I wish then new American President was a "better orator, less orange with a better haircut and exercised less foot-in-mouth moments"? Yes. Dont we all? ;)
America has a new CEO in charge of this huge lumbering and openly corrupt political machine, so lets hope he delivers on a his election trail promises. This immigrant hopes Democracy prevails.
Too bad CP didn't come talk to us. We jumped through the hoops and got our HACCP plans together. It took us 8 months of hurry-up-and-wait back and forth with Columbia, laboratory product assessments to verify our methodology was sound, and HACCP training seminars for the management and staff. The end result is fantastic artisnal products that we guarantee won't kill you.
It's not just about filling in the paperwork, it's about advanced understanding of the microbiology and physical and chemical controls involved.
We're now working towards wholesale and hope to be able to produce custom products for chefs who can't put the time and treasure into developing their own plans.
