So, the H.L. Mencken/Hunter S. Thompson of food & society is moving to CNN.
I haven't watched CNN since the top of Larry King's head sank below his suspendered shoulders as his once-riveting, "must-see" show (ca. 1992) became info-tainment featuring the likes of O.J. and M.J.
Now I'll have a reason to watch CNN again. I hope that Tony continues to rein in his Upper West Side political sensibilities, adding just a soupcon
every now and then for "spice" and "texture". In fact, one of the funniest things I ever saw was his nervous
" /> at the riot that nearly ensued after he, kindly and with the best of intention, bought out the food from a Haitian street vendor and tried to give it away in an orderly manner to a mob of hungry mendicants.
Tony, a word of advice: ix-nay on the olitics-pay
; if you get tempted, just walk down the street and stuff a Gray's Papaya in your yap!
