Anyone know where to get Pearl's hot dogs? A friend of mine always brings me them from Worcester Mass., where he buys them at BJs, but they aren't available at the local BJs. Great knockwurst flavor.

You should try making Bananas Foster (sauteed in butter and rum) sometime.

John Sayles seems to have stopped editing his movies; the last few (including Honeydripper) were overlong and with too many tangents. Then I read an interview with him and he basically confirmed this, saying that shooting a scene was so expensive, he didn't feel as if he could afford to cut any of them when he was finished. I'm sorry it's come down to that for one of our all-time great independent movie makers, but I beg to differ with this approach: Less can sometimes be more.

Thanks, Judy, for this heart-rending, eye-opening post.

Joe Flacco may be a nice guy, but he's a mediocre quarterback.

Can't pick a favorite biopic, but one that surely stank was The Doors.

The Patriots have played some stinko football at times this year, on offense as well as defense. They've also played well enough to win a bunch of games. But rarely have they played anything close to the kind of inspired football that Brady-led teams were capable of. They're a mediocre team that's well-coached enough to maybe make the playoffs. But much like the Jets, they won't be going very far and aren't much fun to watch - unless you like torture.

"Valerie Plame" is clever, but the refrain is repeated so often that it grows annoying by the end of the song.

As a side note, why isn't this movie playing in the Electric City's taxpayer-financed (Metroplex) movie house, Movieland? We only seem to get mall theater garbage there.

David, Thanks for the heads up on some art exhibits I probably wouldn't have thought about checking out.
