    I've killed two Whirlypops, a hand-cranked stovetop model, and at least one modern air-popper--all within a few uses. The Poppery is a workhorse, and has a convenient on/off switch.

    Angola prison in Louisiana is one of the worst offenders; I've seen it described as "basically a plantation." Disgusting.

    Well, y'all can wallow in your apocalysm all you want, but I don't think the world will end in any of our lifetimes. It makes a cheery talking point, I guess; I would save the jeremiads for at least...

    Or Diwali, this time of year. Or Santa Lucia Day. There are winter festivals of all kinds, so I figure "Happy Holidays!" covers them all. I don't care what holiday greeting others use.

    And you can always go low-carb (maybe 70-100 gm daily) without embracing ketosis. The book Life Without Bread spells that option out nicely.
