To Cook or Not to Cook
Now, I am not much of a cook. Most of what I eat is either from a TV dinner box or similar, or from a fast food or quick service restaurant. But when I do cook something for myself or for friends and family, I am proud of my effort. It is the product of my labor.
In my opinion, the Bullet Express is cool, but it takes much of the creativity and rewarding labor out of preparing a meal from scratch. I wouldn't want to use it. It would be like me cheating when creating a meal.

Parasailin' with Sarah Palin

Toffee For Your Coffee
This is a heartwarming video from Dunkin Donuts. It's about the man, Jeff Hager, who created a donut for DD as part of a contest. I think he looks a little like Todd Palin. But that's neither her nor there. What matters is that he's an everyman, like you or me.

Taking the Time to Remember Tony Snow
While I pride myself as a person who is knowledgeable on all current events, I readily admit I probably would've passed over the anniversary of Snow's death (it was cancer; he was only 53) had I not tuned into FOX News this morning. Snow, who used to work at FOX, was being remembered fondly by his former Fox News Sunday coworkers in between news stories.
Before I divulge more, I want to say that I still - and perhaps always will - remember when and where I was when I learned of Snow's death: interestingly enough, I was on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., where I was attending the Ron Paul Revolution March, which I blogged about a year ago. (summary here, videos here)
I met up on the Hill with my friends from VCU and my good friend and freedom-lover Conor Murphy, a huge fan and devotee of Snow, broke the news to me. I knew Snow was in poor health, but I was taken aback to learn of his death from Conor.
Robert Dougherty, a contributor at Associated Content, writes a great article on Snow, FOX News, and his role he played as press secretary.
I think Snow will be remembered for years to come, especially in a time in which people think press secretaries are so important. (Who doesn't know who Robert Gibbs is?)
Snow had the pizazz, story, and attractive flair that Ari Fleisher and Scott McClellan did not.
Rest in peace, Tony Snow.

Celebrity Deaths Coming in Spurts
This reminds me of a time last summer in 2008, when Bernie Mac, Isaac Hayes, and George Furth died on August 9th, 10th, and 11th, respectively. Their deaths were preceded by household names like Tim Russert, George Carlin, and Tony Snow who died in June and July.
So I surmise that celebrity deaths must be coming in spurts, or something.
