Red state, blue state

-My defense of Heathen America is up at Culture11. Disclaimer: no, I do not think the "Red-Blue" divide fully describes life in this country. But, as with most 'constructions,' it gets at something not entirely untrue.

-In some universe, $27 for a main course counts as a "recession special."

-Alert the presses! I actually agree with a post at Phi Beta Cons.

-In light of William Kristol's hearty praise of Joe the Plumber, I hereby suggest we remove the column from Kristol (ahem) and give it to a regular Joe. We don't need Kristol's fancy Harvard-tainted musings anymore!

-Audrey's back. Or is she? Blogroll reinstatement depends on contribution to my procrastination, that is, on further posting. Those are the rules...

That universe is called "blue America".

If you don't like it, go back to exurban Missouri. I hear the Applebee's there has a great early bird special at a very reasonable price.

I see the joke you're getting at, but... no. It's far more blue-state to enjoy obscure, inexpensive 'ethnic' food.
