We’ve never had food delivered to our home. It always seemed so extravagant. So when we’ve had a craving for pizza, ordinarily we’d just eat at our favorite pizza place, LeMay’s. But those plans were not in the offing, given the annoying virus situation.

So we were going to call in a pick-up order, and I would go into the shop to pick it up. But the idea of standing in a crowded pick-up area, handing over a credit card, and wondering how many people had touched my pizza and the box—well, it was just too much for me. We figured there would be much less exposure and touching of pizza-related items if we requested delivery, even for a five-dollar delivery fee plus tip.

There’s no question what I’m having for dinner tonight. The only question is delivery, frozen, or homemade?

Okay, there’s another question. What toppings? I usually prefer a garbage pizza, but my favorite two-topping pizza is pepperoni and onion.

Thank heavens for Bill de Blasio. In just a few short years as New York’s Mayor, he has turned its underwater finances around, eliminated racism, sexism, religious intolerance, and violent crime, and he has spearheaded a jobs-and-revenue initiative, the crown jewel of which was bringing Amazon’s second corporate HQ “home” to the city. Along the way, he’s divested the city pension funds from fossil fuels (I suspect this is code for “taxpayer bailout coming soon”), banned single-use plastic items in the food-service industry (are condoms next–what a complicated and ‘intersexional’ discussion that would be), and pledged to “divert” 90% of waste from landfills (“to where,” I ask myself–in years’ past the answer to a question like that has too often been: to my neighboring state of West Virginia) by 2030.

Best of all, he’s even met Greta Thunberg. (I remember this specifically, because it happened on my birthday, the day that de Blasio’s Department of Education allowed hundreds of thousands of city school children to skip school and “throw a wobbly” in the streets. As we all know, “climate change” was fixed as a result of this brave action, and we are all. Much. Better. Off. as a result.)

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for the ides of November, the 15th this is (do you believe it?!?) episode number 2-0-0 of the podcast with your bicentennial hosts radio guy Todd Feinburg and AI guy Mike Stopa. We call it Sex, Trump, and Videotape. In this edition of the show we get to the important issue of the age of Trump, namely, is it okay for an ordinary liberal person to (a) sleep with, (b) date, or (c) marry a Trump supporter? Is there a litmus test that means that no such relationships should be permitted to happen? If so, what do you do with those people you started to get involved with in the first place?

And for our second topic (are you ready for this) we do *food*. Yes, the new style of the show (for this week anyway) is one political topic and one food topic. And as long as we are doing a food topic, we may as well hit the most important food topic, namely, what’s the best pizza in America? (Answer: Chicago pizza).

Description

For those who want to live forever and achieve heaven on earth, God created all the ingredients for Pizza Florentine Alfredo. Now, to make your life complete, I shall teach you how to combine them to create a masterpiece you will never forget. As with any pizza, it has a crust, sauce, cheese, and toppings. This particular recipe will provide ingredients and instructions for gluten-free crusts, because the author of the recipe cannot eat any other kind. The primary toppings of this pizza are fresh baby spinach leaves, slivered or sliced almonds, and bacon because that’s what God intended those ingredients for is to be combined on a pizza.

This recipe is made in a 14” non-stick deep-dish pizza pan. If your pan is smaller, you might consider cutting the recipe. If your pan is larger, how do you fit it into your kitchen cabinets?

It started just about 39 years ago. As with most families, Christmas Day at my house was marked by all the usual things: the early risings, opening presents, listening to Christmas music, and having the traditional turkey dinner with potatoes, vegetables, etc. That was until Christmas 1978.

You see, a month before, on November 26, my family was increased from six kids to seven by the birth of a (devastatingly handsome to be sure) 10-lb., 23″-long bouncing baby boy (who, though he was destined to be a fairly trouble-free infant, toddler, and young child … adolescence was another story) whose birth had led to a slow and unpleasant recovery by my mother.

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club podcast for December 13, 2016 it’s the Bikini Burger Babes edition of the podcast brought to you by SimpliSafe, DonorsTrust and Patriot Mobile.

Today we will talk about Donald Trump’s Labor Secretary nominee Andy Puzder, the CEO of CKE Restaurants and the mind behind the Hardees advertising campaign that puts fat, juicy hamburgers in the hands and mouths of scantily-clad, blue-hot, All American girls (see image). Why does the left view gorgeous women in bikinis as outrageous but Lena Dunham in a bikini as “empowering?” And who, by the way, really believes that raising the minimum wage is a smart idea that will help, for example, unemployed people? Andy Puzder doesn’t!

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Remembering an Evening with Scalia: Textualism, Sandwiches, and Tomato Pie

 

A few years ago, Scalia spent an evening with our local chapter of the Federalist Society, giving a talk loosely based on his latest book, Reading Law: The Interpretation of Legal Texts, with lively Q&A to follow.

I was in graduate school at the time – not law school – and I remember my first thought being, “Dress up. You know how lawyers are, and it’s not every day you meet a Supreme Court justice.” So wearing my best blouse and skirt, I arrived at the posh library hosting the event – and immediately proceeded to feel like a dirty hippie: Lawyers dress sharp. Conservative lawyers even more so – and even sharper for an occasion like this one. Though out of my element, and handicapped somewhat by lack of shorthand skills, I did manage to scribble down several notes and quotes, and I thought I’d share some of the more legible ones with you. As the course of the evening made clear, Scalia is an eminently quotable guy, so let’s start with his own words:

Over on Merina’s Tolerance thread we’re once again rehashing the same old religious questions that have been covered before, such as “Who is and who is not a Christian?” But, I have found that there are much more important religious divides seething beneath the surface here on Ricochet, and I would like to bring them […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. Principle and Process

 

imageSo here we are, looking at another major election in just over a year, and our intra-party divisions don’t just increase, they’re becoming an out-and-out canyon. You can see the conflict summed up in many ways: Tea Party vs. Mainstream, Movement vs. Establishment, Fringe vs. RINOs, and Chaos Marine vs. Imperial Space Marine. Okay, I made that last one up*. I find these terms inadequate, however. More and more, I find the real divide as Principle vs. Process.

Principle Republicans tend to perceive themselves as embracing our nation’s founding ideas. For the Principle Republican, small government is key. This is not necessarily a reference on locality, but rather on the presence of government in daily life. Indeed, you only need to look at San Francisco or Seattle to see that local government does not necessarily mean small government. The Principle Republican sees government as necessary — which largely differentiates him from more libertarian line of thought — but prefers a government as described in the Tao of Taos: one which has a light touch, where the people see themselves as accomplishing things rather than the government. Mark Levin’s book Liberty and Tyranny† eloquently describes the thinking of the Principle Republican.

My new favorite website is Brandwatch, which I know is a business and trying to get companies to pay for their research, but a lot of the fun stuff is free. Essentially, they monitor social media so you don’t have to. And they find out stuff.

Our ever-expanding definition of bullying—the most horrible of horribles—made me think it might be helpful to provide a scorecard of recent news stories to see how our journalistic leaders at mainstream outlets, pundits of the mighty blogosphere, and social-media denizens categorized various behaviors. This scorecard can serve as a cheat sheet as we try to […]
