That's over 4,000 people, correct? Can we send them to Florida? One way ticket to oh I don't know, somewhere near a golf resort that starts with the letter M?

 

That’s not a golf resort. The golf resort starts with a D and has a great deconstructed hamberger.

What is the foreign substance that looks like a white gelatinous strand on that bottom tomato?

I believe he means the bottom slice of tomato that has a little snotstring on it. I don't think it really is a snotstring or even a sweatball which would be round, but it resembles a snotstring.

Oh. That’s a tapeworm.

Chili churro is the superior condiment. Neck and neck with horseradish sauce.

It is an interesting plate - deconstructed buffalo mozzarella (Italian Water Buffalo cheese) caprese salad (minus basil/add salad greens) in three sections and a hamburger patty topped with chimichurri (or a basil pesto sauce) in the fourth.  And as an added bonus - a mystery strand of something on one tomato. 

The hamburger and plate type are out of place - but it's a Trump diner so I guess that is to be expected. It belongs in The Gallery of Regrettable Food - http://lileks.com/institute/gallery/

The white ball is burrata, which is like Xzibit heard you liked fresh mozzarella and put it in fresh mozzarella so you can cheese while you cheese. The sauce is pesto. The greens are frisee tossed in olive oil and lemon with white pepper and a little salt. The tomato is purple cherokee. The little string seems like something that came from the kitchen for a special guest.

That makes sense that the green sauce is pesto what with the mozzarella and all. Don't know why I was thinking chimichurri, although that may be my own bias. I have had some awful pesto sauces.

Glad you clarified on the tomato, too. The color looked like an heirloom or special variety.

Chimichurri sounds damn good on a burger patty. 
 

Burrata is a nice cheese within a cheese. 
 

The plate could use a balsamic vinegar drizzle and perhaps a glaze on the burger patty.  I imagine the owner believes the dish is for Womb-Man and soy-boys.

Tbh, I love 'variety' burgers. Burgers to match your mood, your favorite toppings, the occasion, whatever. Sometimes plain, sometimes fancy, some days you just roll with what you've got in the pantry. Had a gorgonzola burger at The Wild Iris Cafe in Madison once that was really really tasty. I'd just run a long race the day before though so pretty much anything sounded good. Food is personal and though I'm giving Bozo a little grief, here's a toast to all the great burgers out there. Life's too short to have 'em all.

Among other things it shows that contrary to the whining on this thread, dildos CAN get fair and balanced coverage from the NYT.

Bari Weiss (proud Jewish defender and centrist columnist for the NYT) has resigned from the paper. Her resignation letter explains:

Quote

Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.

Twitter is not on the masthead of The New York Times. But Twitter has become its ultimate editor. As the ethics and mores of that platform have become those of the paper, the paper itself has increasingly become a kind of performance space. Stories are chosen and told in a way to satisfy the narrowest of audiences, rather than to allow a curious public to read about the world and then draw their own conclusions. I was always taught that journalists were charged with writing the first rough draft of history. Now, history itself is one more ephemeral thing molded to fit the needs of a predetermined narrative.

My own forays into Wrongthink have made me the subject of constant bullying by colleagues who disagree with my views. They have called me a Nazi and a racist; I have learned to brush off comments about how I’m “writing about the Jews again.” Several colleagues perceived to be friendly with me were badgered by coworkers. My work and my character are openly demeaned on company-wide Slack channels where masthead editors regularly weigh in. There, some coworkers insist I need to be rooted out if this company is to be a truly “inclusive” one, while others post ax emojis next to my name. Still other New York Times employees publicly smear me as a liar and a bigot on Twitter with no fear that harassing me will be met with appropriate action. They never are.

There are terms for all of this: unlawful discrimination, hostile work environment, and constructive discharge. I’m no legal expert. But I know that this is wrong. 

I do not understand how you have allowed this kind of behavior to go on inside your company in full view of the paper’s entire staff and the public. And I certainly can’t square how you and other Times leaders have stood by while simultaneously praising me in private for my courage. Showing up for work as a centrist at an American newspaper should not require bravery.

Part of me wishes I could say that my experience was unique. But the truth is that intellectual curiosity—let alone risk-taking—is now a liability at The Times. Why edit something challenging to our readers, or write something bold only to go through the numbing process of making it ideologically kosher, when we can assure ourselves of job security (and clicks) by publishing our 4000th op-ed arguing that Donald Trump is a unique danger to the country and the world? And so self-censorship has become the norm.

What rules that remain at The Times are applied with extreme selectivity. If a person’s ideology is in keeping with the new orthodoxy, they and their work remain unscrutinized. Everyone else lives in fear of the digital thunderdome. Online venom is excused so long as it is directed at the proper targets. 

Op-eds that would have easily been published just two years ago would now get an editor or a writer in serious trouble, if not fired. If a piece is perceived as likely to inspire backlash internally or on social media, the editor or writer avoids pitching it. If she feels strongly enough to suggest it, she is quickly steered to safer ground. And if, every now and then, she succeeds in getting a piece published that does not explicitly promote progressive causes, it happens only after every line is carefully massaged, negotiated and caveated.

Sinclair stations to air “interview” this weekend with guests who claim Fauci is behind Covid 19. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/24/media/sinclair-fauci-conspiracy-bolling/index.html

The host, former Fox News host Eric Bolling, then has on a more legitimate guest (Fox News medical contributor) that calls the Fauci accusation highly unlikely. Wtf. You can’t make baseless claims and then profess balance by disputing them. Bolling also claims he doesn’t control the guest lineup or what text is placed on the screen. Nice journalism ethics there. I just followed my orders defense.

you wonder why people are quick to embrace qanon when local network channels are broadcasting this crap. The network news all should be slamming their corp bosses for continuing to have a relationship with Sinclair.

List of Sinclair stations including CBS in Austin and both San Antonio’s NBC and Fox channels. I don’t know if every station will air this or not. It’s on CBS Austin’s schedule for 10:35p Saturday night.

Cross posting this from Covid thread. 
 

Cuomo quote included without batting an eye. Hilarious.

Once again, one subset of “large gatherings” not included. 
 

"I am appalled. The Department of Health will conduct an investigation," the governor said. "We have no tolerance for the illegal & reckless endangerment of public health."

I'm just curious - why the obsession with Cuomo and NY? The article covers several other states as well, but you and the rest of the DT cabal (seewhatididthere) really have it bad for NY

Nevermind that our fair state of TX is comparatively shitting the bed for shutting down large meetings and groups. Shit, the Typhoon Texas near my parents house in Pflugerville had packed lines on every tower ride, and they were clearly not social distancing

Trump sycophants can't stand the fact that Trump is from NYC and nearly universally despised there.  Especially among the crowd he most wants to belong to.  They carry his water far and wide.  This, of all things, shouldn't surprise you one bit.

I've been very impressed with Kaitlan Collins on CNN.   She's always on point when interviewed by a main anchor, even keeled, professional.  And she doesn't give two shits about Trump's bullying style in press conferences, keeps after him, never intimidated.   She's 28 and has more balls than most of the men who interview Trump.

Parents must be proud.

No obsession with Cuomo. He just had the most ridiculous unchallenged quote that was in the article.

I’d guess that the percentage of Trump voters that give a shit about how he’s perceived in Ny is less than 10%? What an odd thing to post.
