THE QUOTE

“I believe in evidence. I believe in observation, measurement, and reasoning, confirmed by independent observers. I’ll believe anything, no matter how wild and ridiculous, if there is evidence for it. The wilder and more ridiculous something is, however, the firmer and more solid the evidence will have to be.” — Isaac Asimov

“Welcome to the 2012 Republican National Convention….”

Nothing Like Associating Your Restaurant With A Rat

At the very least, the unflattering, uncomfortable, chintzy-cheap uniforms those outfits make their wage-slaves wear is abusive enough.

I’ll scarf a Big Mac or a Whopper on occasion but I will not — repeat, will not! — allow a Pizza Hut, er, thing to touch my lips.

The inclusion of one restaurant on the list did bum me out, though. Uno Chicago Grill made it. Too bad. Excellent pizza.

NINE REASONS TO KEEP ON LIVING

As long as we’re on the topic, here’s are my fave Chicago pizzas, in no particular order:

Coalfire Pizza With Basil

Gino’s East Deep Dish

Next time you head up north, go to one of these places. Except for Uno’s. Let’s let them treat their people a little better before we toss them any more of our dough.
