Re: Bay Area short term job/suggestions/help

I don't know, but City Journal isn't exactly known as a conservative hit-piece rag, which was my initial thought when reading that piece. It can't be that bad, right? Or perhaps excessive wokeness makes for shit public policy in the same way that excessive anything tends to.

Re: Ward Parkway Center

That sounds right to me. Driving around San Antonio's highways, or the highways that run next to the highways, gets so confusing because there's an H-E-B and a Bill Miller and a Rudy's, and probably a Taco Cabana and a Whataburger at every exit. It's like living in Groundhog Day until you get far en...

Re: Misc Crossroads News

They are closing and they are saying lack of parking is to blame. I dunno about that. I thought it was pretty bad. The sandwiches were very small for what u paid and the food wasn't that great to begin with. We will never get a true Jewish deli in the city What!? The one time I made it down there, ...

I don't think H-E-B is outside Texas at all, are they? And mostly south Texas? Maybe northern Mexico?

Re: Ward Parkway Center

I guess it depends on what you mean by authentic. It looks pretty authentically Texas, and for as much as I don't care for some things about Texas, I can't say I have any complaints about the local cuisine down there. Although I was startled by the floor-to-ceiling shelves of gallon-sized nacho chee...

Re: Ward Parkway Center

I figured I must have missed at least one, but a quick googling for Texas chains turned up a bunch of slasher movie references so I decided to abort that line of inquiry.

I wasn't best pleased with the decision at the time, but I also didn't fully appreciate how much of a dick Texas was.

Re: Ward Parkway Center

What's with all the single-word possessive proper noun Texas chains popping in over the last few years? We got Dickey's, Fuzzy's, Chuy's, Torchy's. I guess Chili's counts, but it's been around forever. Next up Rudy's? Jim's? And so on. Alas, no Whataburger. No Taco Cabana. WHY, TEXAS? We deserve mor...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

If you think the primary point of public transit is to reduce automobile traffic so that the people in cars are less inconvenienced, you might be part of the problem.

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

You won't have to, but if my experience trying to get out of a Cards game on a MetroLink train is any indication, you will likely want to. That was a huge mess.

Of course, people actually go to Cards games because they are vastly more consistently good than the Royals have been since the 1980s.

i don't seek out fried chicken but Rye's is probably the best i've had. where in KC is better? i feel like there is kind of a limit on how good fried chicken can really be. i'll take a great roast chicken anyday! I think some of the best fried chicken around can be found in a little dive on the nor...

I've only been once, probably a bit over a year ago, and I thought the fried chicken was pretty awesome.

But, I mean, it's still fried chicken.

I spent a great deal of time and effort once designing a css theme for this forum. It was a black and white, old-timey streetcar type theme. I was very proud of it. I incorporated an oldschool mid-Century streetcar in the logo and everything. Then when it rolled out everyone bitched and whined and m...
