Back in the day it seemed like A-1 and Heinz 57 were the only things on the grocery shelf and I didn't like either one. Now there are lots of choices but I don't want to test all of them.
If I've got a really nice cut and it comes out juicy I wouldn't use a sauce but sometimes it comes out a lit...

81% of Americans over 100 years old are women. Women live longer than men. It's not fair. We need to have equality.
Simple...Shift all breast cancer funding to prostate cancer research. Charge women higher rates for visits to the doctor and hospital.

I was thinking about the Dem talking points used by Dem's running for re-election in Nov. Specifically in vulnerable seats due to public dissatisfaction with Obamacare.

So, I read this big article in the NYT that the mayor threw out the first pitch of the Met's season opener. They raved about what a good pitch it was but then mentioned that he got booed by the fans.
