Re: “Mojo risin'

Filthy and cockroachy environment. Saw the little buggers running under my table and others. Asked for the owner, who told me "Old Atlanta buildings all have them."
Saw employee sitting on bags of flour near kitchen, farting into the flour and laughing, to the apparent glee of co-workers. Asked the owner about food quality and hygiene standards. Owner response was "A pizza oven sterilizes everything anyway."
Truly disgusting attitude and place. Sure, maybe the farts are sterilized before the food gets to the table, but I ain't eatin' there.
Tried to cancel my order because of the experiences above and these guys had the nerve to argue about their right to keep my money.
Chef Ramsey of Kitchen Nightmares should visit this place and straighten it out, if possible. Although I doubt he would bother.
Lost cause. For those reviewers on yelp praising the place I can only say "Imagine what goes on with the food when customers are not watching and actively complaining."
Health department should shut it down. Period.

Re: “Heroin tightens its grip

I find myself wondering if U.S. failure to finish the war in Afghanistan is the ultimate cause of so much heroin on our streets. Point to Mexico or South America if you want to, but in a global marketplace, more supply anywhere in the world increases supply everywhere.

Afghanistan is the world's hugest producer by far and output has skyrocketed since the US sent its handful of troops in, occupied its tiny percentage of the overall terrain, and left the vast majority of the country unpoliced. News footage of Allied troops in Afghanistan - paltry as coverage is - shows troops on foot slogging by acres of poppies ripening in the fields.

We have done as little to stop heroin production in Afghanistan as we have done to seal our own borders. It's no wonder drugs are omnipresent in America.

Re: “Letter to the editor

Professionally trained, responsible gun carrying citizens would benefit everyone in society.

Combat Military Service should still be on an All Volunteer basis, but the Summer after high school graduation should be dedicated to Mandatory Military Training for every 18 year old kid in the country.

Kids who find they are compatible with the military and enjoy that lifestyle would stay in after boot camp, everyone else would get out in time for college or the working world with a few thousand dollars pay in their pockets.

This would accomplish several things: 1) This would eliminate the need for the 1000s of military recruiters around the country, instantly "freeing up" at least a division of already trained up soldiers to serve in the two wars currently short-staffed; 2) Units of trained personnel could be put together quickly from the pool of those who don't go into the military, in the event of a Katrina or other domestic crisis; 3) Trained gun owners moving throughout society would certainly help tamp down crime; 4) High school graduation rates would rise, since early drop out means instant boot camp, a sure deterrent to quitting school; 5) The "epidemic" of obesity and uselessness among TV and XBox addicted fast food gluttoning youth would be mitigated somewhat, as the need to get in shape for mandatory boot camp would impress itself on kids as they neared graduation, or, if not, boot camp itself would at the very least build some valuable discipline into people; 7) etc.

Professionally trained, responsible gun carrying citizens would benefit everyone in society. Mandatory Military Training, coupled with Voluntary Military Service would increase the number of trained citizens, increase the value to society of these citizens in other areas of life, and would lessen the strain on our military without instituting a draft or resorting to other drastic measures.
