Re: “REVIEW: Billy Fallen returns to cooking with streamlined, rustic pizzas at Billy Pie

Streever - I just returned from 10 days in Paris, and can safely say I ate my weight in cheese, so I'm a fromage fan. At a bistro in the Marais, I has a wonderful pizza. Wood oven, perfect crust, light tomato sauce, a bit of mozzarella and pecorino, paper-thin coppa and prosciutto, mixed greens (lightly dressed), and a sunny-side up egg. The whole thing drizzled with an ancho chili olive oil. Bang-on good freaking pizza.

Re: “Snake Juice

Hi Stump. Folks in Philly will fistfight each other over a cheesesteak. New York City has a long-running debate about - among other things - bagels, pizza, and the best deli. St. Louis has ribs. Every foodie in Texas has an opinion on BBQ. Here in Richmond, we're kinda making a name for ourselves with beer. That means all beer. So the fact that they're fans of High Life is both witty and noteworthy. Hipster-Ironic? Sure. But worth noting.

Re: “Video: Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Virginia Citizens Defense League President To Teach Toddlers How To Shoot "Bad Men"

Hi again Smoking Gun. If a reporter were to ask Van Cleeve about arming toddlers, and he said it was a good idea, said reporter would likely print that viewpoint. If I were to ask Van Cleeve the same, and he maybe thought I was a reporter, would the same answer then be false? FWIW: Newt Gingrich has been out of office since January of 1999. Would you argue that he's irrelevant to today's Republican Party?

Re: “Video: Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Virginia Citizens Defense League President To Teach Toddlers How To Shoot "Bad Men"

Hi Smoking Gun - "An elderly man and some former politicians..." ?? Van Cleeve is one of the most visible and vocal advocates for more guns. Larry Pratt is the head of Gun Owners of America - a group that is - incredibly - more pro-gun than the NRA. Joe Walsh was once considered the most conservative member of Congress, and remains an influential voice for conservatives. These are important people in the gun rights movement. While you're right that police often had advance warnings of shootings (threats, behavior, history...) to say that they "...chose to stand down..." does them a horrible disservice. Say what you will about police and society, but I doubt the worst cop would turn a blind eye to a possible mass shooter. In most cases they're hamstrung by what the law allows them to do. "Oh, you beat up your wife and threatened to shoot her? Keep your gun." The data also does not back up your claim that many crimes are stopped by lawful gun owners. The "smoking gun" is the fact that these people had no qualms about endorsing a program to arm toddlers.
