tostitos multi grain

Which is worse: that Tostitos multi-grain is a "whole-grain" version of a $&# tortilla chip? or that the premise of whole grains suckered me into buying a bag. "multi grain" has become another one of those catch-phrase selling points, like oat bran and, of course, dark choc. The absurdity of "whole grain" Tostitos is that Tostitos = corn chips. or at least they used to. can you have an ear of corn made out of wheat? Anyway the grains are: corn, oat, buckwheat, & wheat. versus frito-lay’s practically identical sun chips, which have: corn, wheat, rice, oat. Someone should do a side-by-side taste test.

Sun Chips rule. They're like eating a roofing product with a touch of sun-kissed sweetness. But keep them away from my Mac.

That Lakshmi in Hyderabad is one savvy consumer!

Personally, I think he rivals Dean in his insights into all things Indian.

I'm beginning to think that "Kirk" has a crush on Dean.

the little NYCE was "hand-crafted" from some fancy wood by a little old carpenter who used to live in the pacific northwest. it was a Xmas present last year so i've actually had it all this time. at some point, i shall redesign NYCE and use it as a logo

Last night, when Lynne and I were cuddling before dropping off to sleep, I thought about how important it is to make sure Congress gives the President (and maybe the Vice President) the ... uh ... flexibility to fight the terrorists wherever, whenever and whatever they may be.

I said to Lynne, "You know, mon petite caille, the world would be a far safer, brighter, lovelier place if the President (and maybe the Vice President) had the unbridled power to monitor every conversation in the world without judicial oversight, send people to prison with only military tribunals involved, and, basically, do whatever the President and Vice President want."

Lynne replied, sleepily, "You know, loveydovey, in the past, when governments have made their citizens give up basic human rights and dignity, they didn't have to treat the legislature with kid gloves. Do you think the Caesars or tsars or kaisers worried about getting senators to support them? Gosh, honeybunny, do you think Napoleon lost sleep over some former POW getting upset about how the imperial troops were torturing saboteurs?"

What she said made a lot of sense. That's why this morning the President and the Vice President took action to put all 100 Senators in protective custody at the new Ronald Reagan Freedom Center on Alcatraz Island, California. (I thought about calling it the Nathan Hale Freedom Center, but we've already focus-grouped that name, and realize that no one under the age of 50 even knows who Nathan Hale was.)

Tomorrow, we are going to open the new Gerald Ford Freedom Center on Ellis Island, New York, for the 435 guests from the Lower House of Congress.

Monday, we plan to place the seven Supremes in an undisclosed location -- the same one I go to every time the going gets tough -- to keep them from sticking their noses into things that don't concern them, like the supposed Constitutional rights of Americans. HOW MANY TIMES DO WE HAVE TO REPEAT IT? If the framers of the original Patriot Act meant for EVERYONE to have civil liberties, they wouldn't have made them AMENDMENTS to the Constitution. Those brilliant men (and maybe the Vice President) knew with great certainty that someday the terrorists would make it necessary to suspend all of the supposed bill of rights.

During this time of global war, it is important for all Americans to realize that the President (and definitely the Vice President) know what is best for all of us.

Amen.

I love the Supremes. Come See About Me, My World Is Empty Without You ... very inspiring.

Most of the Supremes' music was written by other people, you know. So there's nothing wrong with being just a singer who does not write her songs.

You know, while they don't (unfortunately) eat dog in India, they do in some of their neighboring countries.

The sad thing is that I will probably buy this because I am somehow addicted to Tostitos and salsa.
