    John Wiley Who?

    But this week Price did speak to the Associated Press for a story with a very similar theme: "Dallas Indictment Raises Race Issues." In the piece, he refuses to take the reporter's bait: Dallas County Commissioner John Wiley Price, who is black, sai...

    Casey Thompson's Pork Belly Just Wasn't Crispy Enough

    Like she said yesterday, Casey Thompson will be back in the Shinsei kitchen on Monday -- not the Top Chef after all, not even almost. In the very end, after a give-us-yer-best cook-off during which she came off rattled and umm-ed, Thompson knew she w...
