NYT Mag is excited about cryovacking (sous vide).

about that green day video. pure propaganda. remember george will's election 2004 epiphanies?? -- In 2000, Americans were reminded that electoral votes select presidents. In 2004, Democrats were reminded that Bruce Springsteen does not. -- or green day. i definitely don't want to formulate any opinion on war or any other hugely political issue based on what green day guys push in a video. i know war sucks, and already i know they don't support it. they should just stick to rockin. ok then.
