Green Bean Casserole

Really Dick? Michael? You don't realize you're being asinine rating a recipe without trying it? Go get a few cans of your favorite ingredients and have at it.

Loud Music in Restaurants

I agree with Helena that you should have left when you walked in and knew the music was too loud for your preference. But it's not rude to make the request, and should be treated very politely by the staff, whether they are able to accommodate or not. However, as people are pointing out, the investment into a restaurant is substantial and the owners are certainly free to choose decor, menu, and the ambiance--music included. It's a crap-shoot for any new restaurant to survive longer than a year. There is a niche for loud and boisterous places. Maybe some people have to go to dinner with others whom they don't want to hear what they have to say anyway?

Bursting the Pop-Tarts Bubble

I agree with Mr Norton, Bigger Game is the thing here. Anyone with even half a brain could take on Pop-Tarts World, and have enough brain power left to produce a big diatribe against every chain restaurant strip that sprouts in every town in America. Besides, I'd rather have children with Pop-Tarts in their stomachs for breakfast than nothing at all...but that issue could lead to a whole new diatribe, maybe one worth talking about.

10 "Holy Shit" Things About the Egg Recall

I agree Danna. Everyone has such misplaced PC issues in this country, it is essentially crippling our nation, turning so many people into whiny little sheep. People died, gave their lives for our freedom, our rights, and you're going to jump on some bandwagon, protesting the use of the word "illegals"? Grow up.
