Thinking about Meryl Streep, Whole Foods and more

    • Half foods?

      Ever since the Henderson Whole Foods rearranged its food bars a few months back, something’s been amiss. No scallions? No corn? No beets? Those are salad essentials, people! Don’t make me drive to Sweet Tomatoes... —Spencer Patterson, managing editor

    • Streepy

      Given Meryl Streep’s endlessly convincing transformations on film, she deserves the Oscar love. But it scares me that she’s so good, she could almost impersonate my own mother without me knowing. Hell, she could probably pass for my father, too. —Erin Ryan, staff writer

    • No bullsh*t here

      Kudos to Penn Jillette, a contestant on this season’s Celebrity Apprentice, for raising a crapload of money for his chosen charity, Las Vegas’ very own Opportunity Village, on last week’s episode. Represent! —Ken Miller, associate editor

    • Veg-a-meat

      Botero’s regular menus say “Botero” on the cover. Botero’s vegetarian menus say “Botero Steak” on the cover. Discuss. —Rick Lax, staff writer

    • Seeing the light

      There’s a news story circling the internet with the headline, “Mayan Light Beam Photo: Message From Gods, or iPhone Glitch?” Aren’t they one and the same? —Kristen Peterson, staff writer
