Eat healthier Chinese food

CNN has a piece on unhealthy Chinese food which starts off with sensational news then tempered with:

The group found that not much has changed since it examined Chinese food 15 years ago. That's not all bad, Liebman said.

"We
were glad not to find anything different," she said. "Some restaurant
food has gotten a lot worse. Companies seem to pile on. Instead of just
cheesecake, you get coconut chocolate chip cheesecake with a layer of
chocolate cake, and lasagna with meatballs."

But the funny kicker is at the end where they give out 'advices' on healthier Chinese food:

Hold the sauce, and eat with a fork or chopsticks to leave more sauce behind.

I don't know about you, but how else would you eat Chinese food but using a fork or chopsticks? Spoon like a baby?

Star sighting

Last night instead of playing tennis, I had a business dinner/night out with the new owner. We went to Blue Ribbon for sushi, which turns out to be the best I've had since I moved to NYC 6 years ago! Then we retired to a cigar room (no, I didn't smoke, though I drank some nice 10 years old port) and about an hour into talking shop, a group of people walked into the cigar room. Guess who were in that group? None other than Spike Lee and Rick Fox!

If only my phone has a camera then I could have snap a photo to show you. See, that's why I need an iPhone!

Atheism hasn’t hurt Fremont Rep. Stark

From San Francisco Chronicle:

"It's not courageous to make a simple statement about personal
beliefs,'' he told about 70 people at the San Leandro City Hall. "What is
courageous is to stand up in Congress and say, 'Let's tax the rich and give
the money to poor kids.' Now that's courageous.''

And more importantly:

Thomas was even happier to see that most of the people at the town
hall meetings weren't interested in talking about Stark's position on God.
Instead, Iraq, health care, global warming, immigration and other national
issues that drove the hour-long sessions.

"It's great that (atheism) didn't come up,'' he said. "There are far
more important things to be concerned about than what Congressman Stark
believes.''

Blind spots

When it comes to programming, I have tremendous respect for my ex-colleague Scott. But apparently he is not a car nut (hint: he drives a Prius), so I was surprised by his post about how the side mirrors should be setup. I thought I was the only person to setup side mirrors this way ever since I owned my first car in the mid-90's! This is despite the fact that this setup is entirely logically as the function of the mirrors (at least to me) is to remove blind spots!
