Race is over

Starbucks is apparently ending its silly  Race Together campaign in which people who can get only service jobs attempt to engage us in serious conversation, so guess we can go back to enjoying our high-price coffee in peace:

You may be a left-wing knucklehead if…

Three squares ain't magic

Commitment to eating three meals a day is "racist." So The National Review says an article in Mother Jones says:

Butler offered excerpts of an e-mail interview with Abigail Carroll, author of the book Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal, as proof of this point.

Yum

No beef here

Huh:

In the U.S., the country that made the hamburger a global icon of American fast-food cuisine, beef is about to fall another spot on the meat scale.

Bell, unrung

You can't unring a bell. You can't call back the arrow. What's done is done. Measure twice and cut once. Our language is full of phrases urging great though before we act, because once we've acted there is no turning back.

But, well . . .

Enough!

 

That burger'll kill you

This is the police. Pull over to the side of the road, sir, and -- very slowly -- put down that hamburger:

An Alabama man says he was cited by Cobb County police for “eating while driving” under the distracted driving law.

Madison Turner said he ordered a double quarter pounder with cheese from McDonald’s last week, and a police officer pulled him over, along Canton Road in Marietta.

Fried

For the "here we go again" file:

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is proposing strict new dietary guidelines for day cares that would prohibit them from frying food that is served to children.

Child care providers would also be formally required to provide children with water upon request, though they would face restrictions on how much apple juice and orange juice they serve.

In the bag

Psstt, hey, buddy, whatcha got in the bag, huh, huh, huh?

McDonald's is starting off the new year with new takeout bags that seem to offer customers a choice: Blare to the world that you’re lovin’ it, or hide your McIndulgence altogether.

Making the grade

Interesting:

INDIANAPOLIS - When you go out to eat in Indiana, you can't really know if the restaurant is clean, unless you search for inspection reports online.

But that search can be time consuming, inconvenient and impractical. That's why other cities and states use a letter grading system, so when patrons walk up to a restaurant, the rating and the score are in plain sight.
