For what it's worth, I think that in this analogy homosexuality is actually R.J. Reynolds and the other tobacco companies. That isn't any less insane, mind you...

Drinks? Sure, okay, do what you will. A lot of drinks seem strange that way, though.

Solid food? That's...odd.

@12 I think it is the same as the sandwich that they used to call the Midnight Cuban, although I thought that Paseo had changed the name to the "Cuban Roast". I haven't been in a while, so maybe they've changed the name again.

As for Dot's, Miles James really understood what God was talking about when God described the Reuben in Leviticus, and you should all go there to eat it. Dot's bacon and various charcuterie options are pretty damn good as well, and they have steak tartare as a happy hour option.

Finally, that stretch of Fremont will likely become an even more prominent sandwich destination when the Where Ya At folks open their restaurant in the Buckaroo's empty shell later this year. Being in walking distance of those Po'boys is likely to do great things for my spirits while doing evil things to my wallet.

@4 Oh yes. Oprah gave McCarthy a platform to espouse the results of her "University of Google" education...

I read Seth Mnookin's book on the issue in February, and his blog of the same name is pretty fascinating and covers the subject as well:

I will swear on a stack of bibles that my first thought was "Tigger".
