Imagine my surprise when I encountered this scene while browsing Walmart on the way to my office this morning! Click to enlarge.

World's Greatest Burgers! Last evening, I produced what were easily the world's greatest burgers. At the very least, they were the greatest burgers I have ever encountered! I mixed a pound of ground sirloin (95% lean) with chopped pickled Jalapeños, minced garlic, sea salt, ground black pepper, crushed red pepper, and Pappy's seasoning. I created two rectangular 1/2-pound patties—shaped to fit the sourdough Colombo rolls. I grilled the patties until the bottom side was nicely charred and turned them. When they were nearly done, I split two Colombo rolls open and placed them face-down on the upper rack of the grill. I placed cheddar cheese slices atop the patties. At the table, we added mustard, mayonnaise, sliced red onion, and sliced tomato. Laura also added ketchup. They were incredibly delicious!

Jesse James I had a conversation with an acquaintance yesterday, during which to subject became Jesse James—the Old West outlaw, not Jesse James of West Coast Choppers, husband of Sandra Bullock. No doubt, we shall discuss that Jesse James at another time. My friend called Jesse James "a train-robbing murderer," and I strongly opposed this—saying that he was, instead, "a murdering train robber." My friend said, "Well, what's the difference? It's the same thing, right?" I said, "Not at all. If he were 'a train-robbing murderer,' he would be a murderer who—during the course of his murdering—occasionally robbed trains. The train-robbing would be secondary to his main avocation—that of murderer. In actuality, Jesse James was a train robber who—if necessary during the course of his train robbing, in order to avoid being captured or shot—occasionally killed people. There is a great difference!" Having been presented with this explanation, my friend quickly agreed that Jesse James was a murdering train robber.
