Let’s make pasta. I didn’t go for this tonight, we ordered in from the regional chain “Pasta House” but a worthwhile read on why going the extra mile for dinner often pays off.
More on St. Louis style pizza. I got a lot of feedback in the last 24 hours on my bit about St. Louis cuisine. So, to further indulge you, here’s a very interesting interview with one of the godfathers of St. Louis pizza: Mike Talayna.

The Trump Campaign is extremely online. A worthwhile read from Jane Coaston. Here’s a taste:

And Trump, who once touted his ability to speak for those often ignored by elites on Twitter, is now the most online politician of them all.
