A Totally Pointless Poll
Gawker's running a poll at the moment, as it wonders who its readers think will be the next Top Chef. And though there are four cheftestants left, Gawker's editors only give you two chefs from which to choose: Dallas' Casey Thompson ("Little Miss Casey: Heart, smile, sorority girliness overcome lack of technical expertise") and Hung Huynh ("Hung the Machine: Perfect execution and impish hostility overcome lack of soul"). Cast your vote now -- though, at last peek, Thompson was already well ahead of Hunyh, by 272 votes. --Robert Wilonsky
