Re: “Meat 2.0: The Return of the Friendly Neighborhood Butcher Shop

And then they put their little tiny hipster hats on top of their "Berkshire chop" cut and wear their skinny pants to the butcher shop. LOL!

Re: “Meat 2.0: The Return of the Friendly Neighborhood Butcher Shop

What CynicalGuy doesn't understand (and probably never will) is that many health-conscious consumers and "foodies" have zero interest in any products made from factory-farm sourced meats; and, unfortunately, that's all that the "old school" butchers know how to use. Many of us consumers simply do not want anything to do with meat from the giant confined-animal feeding operations (CAFOs) that are inhumane to animals; feed animals the worst garbage feed; wreck the environment with huge waste pits that contaminate ground, air and water; routinely use antibiotics as growth promoters and for disease prevention and treatment (because diseases and parasites run rampant through the animal populations because of the super-crowded conditions); run small family farmers out of business; and produce meat products that are dry and tasteless compared to meat from the heritage-breed animals that are pasture raised by family farmers who raise them with quality feed and care. The butchers he calls "the hipster Meat Saviors" DO understand the ever-growing consumer demand for meat from humanely and sustainably raised, pastured animals that are fed only non-GMO or organic feed -- and those "hipster Meat Saviors" are satisfying that consumer demand -- whereas, the old-school butchers don't even begin to be informed about where the market for charcuterie is going. They are clueless, and will likely remain so, wondering why their customer base is deteriorating while their customers are eating fantastic fat-marbled Berkshire pork chops that they got from those "hipsters."

Re: “Sandusky County Prosecutor Declines to File Charges After State Highway Patroller Admits To Sexual Encounters with Pre-teen Boy

The Sandusky County prosecutor's lame excuse is that the guy MIGHT present a defense to the accusation? That makes NO sense. All criminals mount some sort of defense. That a criminal MIGHT mount a defense is certainly no logical reason for the prosecutor not to charge him with a crime.

Re: “Warming Up Your Car is Illegal in Ohio

Dear Alaina Mcconnell:

It's spelled, "s-t-a-t-u-T-e," NOT "statue." Sheesh.

Re: “The 16 Patios You Have to Visit This Summer

And when you sit on the patio at L'Albatros, you are serenaded by the musicians playing at the Barking Spider next door. And I think it's one of the most romantic patios in town.

Re: “Watch Brooklynites Freak Over Guy's Factory Farm-to-Table Resto

He's been on my shitlist since he first won that contest on the Food Network. He's an ass. The hair, the upside-down sunglasses on the back of his head, all of his many affectations are just silly. He has no scruples or ethics when it comes to food. Shill.
