We've stopped trying to give things away, but we do like to call some attention to clever/accurate/downright impressive comments posted on City of Ate. So our favorites from the past seven days, no prizes attached:
From TLS, in response to the Question Of The Week:
"The Costco sampling stations are always crowded and the employees who man them look like they hate the human race. I usually hate the human race by the time I'm in the check-out lane too."
We feel the same way, TLS.
From Christopher, in response to Dude Food:
"I tend to idolize the meatballs as golden brown orbs of delicious dead animal triumphantly plopped atop the pizza as if to say--BEHOLD, I GIVE YOU MEAT!--and so I dismissed your frustration as finicky. But I suppose that you could also look at the same meatballs instead as hoarding and burdensome oppositions to fulfilling what the Germans call Rindfleischlust--why not meat everywhere?; make it a meatzza; let no bite be without meat!"
Lurid, poetic, dramatic...what a great comment.
Also from Christopher, in response to same:
"I believe that all men should be cautious of hubris. History has provided countless warnings: Icarus, Homer's Achilles, Carrot Top..."
We love references to the classics.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
