Miscellaneous Rambling

"140 White Castle locations began serving the vegan Impossible Burger, part of a new wave of plant-based proteins that taste, cook and, in some cases, bleed like the animal version. Unlike tofu dogs and Boca Burgers, these products are aimed squarely at carnivores." Link. A vegan at White Castle is like a priest at a strip club.

I've never cared for White Castle. It had a competitor in its home town of Detroit, Top Hat, which I far preferred. I used to wolf their sliders down ten at a time. They were delicious, and they didn't have that odd taste that made you think that maybe, just maybe, the old riddle about White Castle was true: Riddle: Why do White Castle hamburgers have five holes in them? Answer: It takes five bullets to kill a rat.

Hell's Kitchen, the Brooklyn,

the Harlem: NYC is relentlessly pushing to clean up every neighborhood. The current project: The South Bronx. "SoBro." I love the way the article refers to "affordable housing" and the "working class," when referring to "slums" and "welfare recipients." That's not entirely fair, of course, but it's not inaccurate either.

A legion of prison perverts hang its collective head in disappointment: "The Trump administration reversed a 2012 Obama administration order that allowed transgender inmate to choose where they are housed based on what sex they identify with. The Trump administration guidelines stipulate that prisoners be housed in prisons based on their biological sex." Link.
