Was that a restaurant review? I'm confused, you talked about burgers and friends, and then how you don't like numb food. I have zero idea of what it's like to go to Mission Chinese Food except that some things can be vegan.

check out l.e.'s columns -- for the past gosh-knows-how-many years she's been doing this kind of narrative-incidental description of greasy spoons around town. the columns are more phenom than menu recitation, literary than literal.

and we can always check mission chinese food's reviews in... every other publication in town for more of the latters. xoxo

Aren't humans amazing? They kill wildlife - birds, deer, all kinds of cats, coyotes, beavers, groundhogs, mice and foxes by the million in order to protect their domestic animals and their feed.

Then they kill domestic animals by the billion and eat them. This in turn kills people by the million, because eating all those animals leads to degenerative - and fatal - health conditions like heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, and cancer.

So then humans spend billions of dollars torturing and killing millions more animals to look for cures for these diseases.

Elsewhere, millions of other human beings are being killed by hunger and malnutrition because food they could eat is being used to fatten domestic animals.

Meanwhile, few people recognize the absurdity of humans, who kill so easily and violently, and once a year send out cards praying for "Peace on Earth."
