The Rolls-Royce of Apples

Friday, March 21st, 2014

Wikipedia: “…the Honeycrisp, once slated to be discarded, has rapidly become a prized commercial commodity, as its sweetness, firmness, and tartness make it an ideal apple for eating raw.It has much larger cells than most apples, which rupture when bitten to fill the mouth with juice.”Read more here.

Honeycrisp apples are delicious – and they should be for the price. Upstate New York grows some of the finest honeycrisps in the world. Usually your garden-variety apples like Red Delicious, Granny Smith, and Macintosh cost a little over $1-dollar/pound.  Honeycrisp? $3.99/pound and in some cities you can pay twice that.

There Goes The Neighborhood

Reverend Fred Phelps the vitriol-spouting leader of Westboro Baptist Church who picketed military funerals and espoused hatred for gays died Wednesday at 84. No funeral is planned.

The Church is an embarrassment to most Christians. Famous for their “God Hates Fags” protests at Veteran funerals (because the military allows gays in its ranks,) these pieces of holy shit do have a distink point of view and their right to express it is justified by our Constitution. I think that’s good – just annoying.

Aaron Jackson found a brilliant way to annoy them right back.  He saw there was a house for sale directly across the street from the Church in Topeka, Kansas.  Jackson bought the property, immediately painted it in gay pride colors, and calls it “Equality House.”

Now every time Westboro Baptist Church members leave their church, they’re smacked in the face with a visual symbol of American freedom – a right they’ve exploited for too many years.
