"Are Portlanders Anti-Science?"

The author thinks so.

But at least they have delicious-sounding jian bing (Chinese street crepes).

"The Top 100 Highest Grossing Restaurants In America"

I've been to two of the 100.

Given the prices I assume most of the rest charge, I'm not really interested in visiting the others.

"Why You Shouldn't Buy Organic Based on the 'Dirty Dozen' List"

I thought that list was questionable.

"If anything I exult in the quantity of decisions."

Amen, James Lileks, Amen.

I know where everything is. I have never felt overwhelmed by the quantity of decisions I am required to make, because I have in my head a set of standards: price, quality, how the excesses in this item will be offset by the virtues in this other one, and so on. If anything I exult in the quantity of decisions. To live in a land with 17 types of canned corn!

Diners are an American tradition, and everyone thinks his or her hometown's greasy spoon is the best.

For this list, we scoured Yelp reviews, local newspapers, and culinary awards to find the most popular and beloved diner in every state. We defined diner as a restaurant whose primary purpose is serving breakfast, and awarded bonus points to dives open 24-7.

"Low-fat diet advice was based on undercooked science"

"Damning report says the 1977 Dietary Goals for the United States should never have been introduced." So who do I sue? See also "We should never have told people to stop eating fat".

And see also "The glorious return of the egg: Why Uncle Sam is a horrible nutritionist".

And James Delingpole makes the important connection to climate change: "So Butter is Good For You. Just Like Global Warming, Then."

"Cheaper American Alternatives To 4 Legendary European Cheeses"
