Rotting Beef – Tastes Kind of Like Old Lamb: Funky and Stinky “I’ve been describing it like the taste of roasted hazelnuts and dehydrated mushrooms,” says Billy Oliva, executive chef of Delmonico’s.

Churchill once cracked that “In wartime, truth is so precious that she should always be attended by a bodyguard of lies.” In our current civil war, truth needs a bodyguard, period. An army of them if it ventures near a liberal campus.
Because your ancestors were mean to non-whites, you just have to shut up and take whatever abuse non-whites heap on you. That includes the humiliation of pretending that airheads like Mx.Finley are saying anything of value. It means pretending that Genius T. Coates is not a puerile blockhead with the reasoning skills of a sixth grader. It is not enough to write the check.No, the honky has to grovel while delivering it. Cheering For My Team | The Z Blog
