AKMuckraker: The Truth About Nazis
"I am tired of people comparing Obama to Hitler. I am tired of seeing signs with swastikas and Nazi symbols at health care rallies. I am tired of people saying that a health care plan intended to uplift millions of Americans to give them dignity, and choice and the ability to care for their families, is like Naziism."

There are too many people in Michigan who need to comprehend (not just read) what this article says. I doubt they will, but here is it, just in case they stumble by.

But so often, outdoor dining means you’re just steps from a busy street, inhaling car exhaust.
What's the best place to capture that feeling in Ann Arobr? Zingerman's Roadhouse, of course. You know, the one at the corner of Jackson and Stadium, less than 300 yards from I-94. So what makes it one of the best outdoor dining establishments (aside from the food)?
...wobbly tables and hard, rather uncomfortable seats...

...the descent of tiny bugs on our remaining food at the end of the meal...

...noise can be a problem outside. When crowded, it is virtually impossible to hear your fellow diners amid the din.
I think there should have been some standards set forth before reviewing restaurants where you'd dine al fresco.

Don't get me wrong, we drop a C-note at that place on…

LHC Down, Again.

The Large Hadron Collider has some more problems, according to the NYT.
