Oh no she didn't!
OK, it does sound like JS forgot to take his meds; and personally, I'll take eye candy over Emeril every day. And, despite the excruciating pandering of both Brown and Batali (Steingarten's co-stars on ICA), they are really the least of Food Network's problems (as far as I can remember -- I haven't been able to watch for years). I wonder what got his panties in such a bunch.
Note to unwashed: Steingarten has a speech impediment, so mocking his speaking ability isn't really going to advance your cause.
Also amusing: the bruni digest, devoted exclusively to you know who (I'm not going to link to that song, which was less amusing) [via RS]; the Institute of Food Science & Technology's official statement on "organic food", a hot new trend they apparently just learned about; team party crash follows Guiliano to the 92nd St. Y.; watch the pork board fritter/fiddle away (clumsy Neronian humor) the last of their shakedown money in anticipation of the inevitable Supreme Court smackdown.
