No, I won’t be “eatin’ mor chickn”

Bellevue's new Chick-fil-A is currently under construction, just a mile or so from where I live (as the crow flies). There's been much excitement building ever since the news broke several months ago. People really like their chicken, and apparently there's real demand for fried chicken sandwiches served six days a week.
 


International student orders take out, best pizza in his life

In the U.S., people like to get their food by take out from restaurants.
The best restaurant I have eaten in is Domino's restaurant.
The restaurant has many kinds of food on the menu, for example, wings, pizza, pasta, and cheese bread. Yesterday, I had a delicious pizza from Domino's restaurant.
The pizza was the best one I ever had in my life.

Americans have a right to know

Over 30 years ago, President Nixon changed the way the people of the United States view the government. It became apparent that the word of a government official isn't always trustworthy. In the 1970s, this was a disgrace and the people didn't stand for it.  The media exposed the Watergate Scandal and those involved were ashamed. Nixon was impeached, and ultimately resigned from office.
In the 1990s, President Clinton faced allegations of a sex scandal in the White House. Accused of an affair with a White House intern, he told the country a lie that forever stained his career. Although a bill of impeachment was brought before Congress, it never passed, and Clinton remained in office until the end of his term.
Despite the obvious immorality of the lie he told, Clinton's reputation remained in good shape with many Americans. They stood behind the idea that his sexual relationships were none of the public's business.
 


Does media coverage focus too much on gunmen responsible?

Jack the Ripper: a legend wrapped in grizzly true events, which led to the deaths of at least five women.
