Where good taste, clear and distinct ideas, and graceful modulations tend to be viewed with lowering suspicion.

I wonder how much that Food Court weighs ... and would it weigh less if the court only housed healthy, nutritious foodstuffs ?
It's a perfect picture. They should tear down that statue of justice that bothered poor old John Ashcroft so and replace it with monstrous poster of that diner.
Would you like three pounds of cold hard fat with your five pounds of hot lard on our non-wheat dough ball? Supersize the sugar-saturated enamel stripper? No? Care for a petroleum derivative inspired glom of sludge for the lactose-intolerant? How will you be paying: food stamps or hand gun? Please pull ahead. You gender-specific child choker will be waiting for you at window 666. Lemmy will be your server. Whoooooeeeee!
Hmmm. Hot or cold? What should I eat? hmmm. Hot sounds good. But then, cold sounds pretty appetizing. Wow. I'm not sure...Hot or cold... Hot. Cold. Cold. Hot. I wonder if they have warm food. Maybe I should ask. No, maybe not because it says Hot Food, Cold Food. No mention of warm. Hmmm. I wonder how much the food weighs? Does hot food weigh more? Or Cold? Hmmm. I'm going back to bed.
an architectural toilet: the raw and the cooked, and the scales accoutremental."The slum-dwellers are the counter-class to the other newly emerging class, the so-called 'symbolic class' (managers, journalists and PR people, academics, artists etc) which is also uprooted and perceives itself as universal (a New York academic has more in common with a Slovene academic than with blacks in Harlem half a mile from his campus). Is this the new axis of class struggle, or is the 'symbolic class' inherently split, so that one can make a wager on the coalition between the slum-dwellers and the 'progressive' part of the symbolic class? The new forms of social awareness that emerge from slum collectives will be the germs of the future and the best hope for a properly 'free world', whether or not it's the one that Garton Ash refers to in his title."http://www.lrb.co.uk/v26/n17/zize01_.html-klaus
