James and Kate are both incredible people, but Kate is one of my personal heroes and is pretty much responsible for my life not being terrible. Go Kate!

@4 @5, hah! Oh boy, you can always trust the person who declares that they 'see the truth' unlike the rest of us, are so enlightened, that we're all 'sheeple' (or whatever), that we're all brainwashed and wallowing in our ignorance. Yes, Unbrainwashed, your vapid comments show that you truly see the world for what it is, and the rest of us really benefit from your trolling knee-jerk uneducated comments. You're really such a valuable part of a community dedicated to critical inquiry and independent journalism.

Anyway, my heart goes out to these two, and the others involved in this mess. Grand juries are awful, and are such a shining example of judicial system hypocracy.

Nov 26, 2012 Benj commented on The Universal Absorbent.
I've been going since the first week, and I've never had a bad experience there. The food is delicious! But my favorite thing is how incredibly open and nice the people who work there are, and it's not in the "smile at your customer" kind of way. The people at ChuMinh are earnest and generous, and I always leave feeling glad that I came. Bonus points: they have a sign on the wall that reads, "We care more about your spiritual well-being than making money." Yes please!!

@20 - because our bodies and abandoned properties are somehow equivalent? You "hates hypocrisy" and apparently also hate logic. You should probably think long and hard about the very significant differences between our SELVES and someone's BUILDING.
