White Castle is regional. So is In N Out. The people polled probably don’t have either of them anywhere nearby.

My nearest Chick Fil A is 45 minutes away, and while I’d like to try it, I’m not going to go the distance. Factoring in the price of gas and the time, I can have a leisurely meal at a nice local restaurant.

Papa John’s is really skimpy on their toppings. I used to order from them, but no longer. I prefer Domino’s.

I think KFC is better than it used to be years ago. (I always get the original recipe.) The mashed potatoes used to be inedible, and now they’re decent. Cole slaw used to be too soupy for my liking, and even it has improved. I’ve never been a McDonald’s fan. I went there for the first time in YEARS a few weeks ago and got a breakfast sandwich. It was “decent” but it isn’t a place I’ll be frequenting.

I thought Smyrna was in GA–home of the Glock manufacturer. Is there one in TN, too?
Smyrna, TN is in between Nashville and Murfreesboro.

In N Out is my favorite, too, but it’s regional (I think just CA) which is probably why it didn’t make the list.
I’ve never been to a Panera. One recently opened near me, and I checked it out on Yelp. It got terrible reviews, so I won’t be trying it.
I like Del Taco. Food is fresh and consistent, service is quick and friendly. They also give senior discounts and FREE drinks to seniors, so the bill is next to nothing.

You’re right, the $500K won’t come from the doctor’s malpractice insurance company, because there was no malpractice or negligence.

An anesthesiologist doesn’t need bedside manners. I’ve known several, having been married to a surgeon, and most of them have boring personalities.

I think a $500K judgment is ridiculous. Was it malpractice or negligence? No! The patient wasn’t harmed in any significant way, except that his feelings were hurt.

dokidog – College isn’t for everyone. Trade schools are a good alternative. We need competent electricians, plumbers, carpenters, etc., and they go to trade schools and/or act as apprentices until they have learned the skills that they need. You call them “just a job,” but they are every bit as necessary as the academic types. In many cases, more so. I have a Master’s Degree, so I’m not against a good college education for those who are up to it. On the other hand, my father only had a 10th-grade education and had to go to work to help support his parents. He became a very successful salesman.

The article, and other news stories, all say possible “deceleration” of the police van. That means slowing down. It’s a far cry from “suddenly braking,” which could have caused the thug to get injured, especially if standing. Nowhere have I heard that the driver of the van slammed on his brakes. Even if he did, it could have been due to heavy traffic or being cut off by another driver. I think it’s a tragedy that six police officers are being blamed for this and will likely lose their livelihood. I hope the TRUE facts of the autopsy, assuming the pathologist is honest, will come out.

Romney’s dog was perfectly safe in a dog crate on the roof of the car. The dog didn’t get sick or die.

My 97 y.o. mother hasn’t been subjected to a death panel yet, even though she’s completely bed-ridden and is no longer a contribution to society. She must have pretty good insurance. Ironically, she loves Obama.

Eagle Rising is a good conservative website.

That golf course is about 1 1/2 miles from where I live. He played golf in 113 degree weather. Maybe he won’t be back for a while. Thank goodness he left last night and he didn’t cause any serious road closures this time.

“Common sense gun reform” should mean reverting back to the gun rights we had prior to Obama. Remove all the restrictive (and dangerous to us law-abiding citizens) laws which seem to get passed on an almost daily basis, and concentrate on keeping firearms out of the hands of the mentally ill. And I don’t mean the “mentally ill” label they’re trying to use on veterans.

What are you babbling about? You’re making things up as you go along. I see your handle is [Suspended User.] You should remain suspended.

If it’s Carly Fiorina, there could be good times ahead.

Alexander Hamilton is one of my ancestors, and I’d hate to see him fade into oblivion. Chuck Stein, he definitely was not black!
