'Walking Dead' turns Georgia town into tourism hub
Fri Mar 29, 2013
"... around Senoia, which for the show's third season was transformed into the fictional town of Woodbury." What‽ I wish reporters would put as much effort into writing their stories as I do into reading them. Woodbury is a real town, Ms. Jenkins. This system won't let me display externa …
Pan-fried crickets: The food of the future?
Wed Feb 15, 2012
I had grasshopper tacos at a restaurant in New York recently (Toloache). They were delicious. (And, in this case, they really did look like bugs, and the tacos were packed full of them.) I'd certainly eat them again, as it was a pleasant flavor (nutty/meaty) and texture (similar to meatloaf). The fa …
Reality for a turista south of the border

Thank you for making this point. It drives me crazy when travel writers encourage us to respect other cultures, and then they can't even be bothered to write the words correctly.
Top up-and-coming restaurants in America
Thu Jan 20, 2011
Seriously? For up-and-coming restaurants, the best you could do for Atlanta was an outlet, in the distant suburbs, of a California-based burger chain? If you're just throwing darts at an Atlanta phone book, why don't you just leave our city of the list entirely.
Cowboys, Globetrotters return to 'Amazing Race'
Wed Jan 19, 2011
I'm totally with you on bringing back some of the first-eliminated teams -- especially the ones who seemed to have potential, but just made a bad choice or had bad luck early in the game. You lose me though when you show any fondness for Charla and Mirna. Having those two wretched excuses for huma …
Who do you think is going to win 'Survivor'?

Thank you Jane for sticking to your guns in criticizing Marty.
Sleep-deprived Americans nap in some strange places, survey says
Wed Mar 9, 2011
What's wrong with (or weird about) sleeping on a bus? In my mind, one of the greatest aspects of public transit is the ability to use the time productively instead of staring out a windshield at a sea of brake lights. On some mornings, my productive bus time involves working on my Android; on others …
Glowing trees to replace street lamps
Wed Nov 24, 2010
Do y'all do any kind of quality control on these articles before posting them? The first sentence in the article reads (emphasis added): "The golden glow of street lights could soon be replaced by the green fluorescence of tree leaves." The last sentence reads (again, emphasis added): "'They certa …
Marty and Jane go to war on 'Survivor'
Wed Nov 10, 2010
After the criticism that Shannon got for his homophobia early in the season, I'm stunned and disappointed that Marty's anti-Southern bigotry has gone unchallenged, both in the game and in the blogs.
What would be the biggest motivator for you to drive less?
Wed Nov 3, 2010
It's not just for Gen Y: I got rid of my car in 2006 and am thrilled with that decision. I'm 46 and live in Atlanta.
