    Just what we need during the New Depression. Doesn't anyone realize people can't afford "new, lavish, more expensive" things? Sheer idiocy.

    Has anyone else noticed that in the face of the economic thrash-out, record unemployment and the impoverishing of America that everyone is RAISING prices; whether it's books, fast food or iTunes? WTF???

  2. They keep saying Cracker Jacks in that column. Wrong. It's Cracker Jack, without the s.

  3. I have not had the salmon sandwich - or the Ichi-roll sushi, for that matter - at Safeco Field. I'm strictly a hot dog 'n beer man when it comes to the ballpark.

    But I will try those cannoli when I go to Citi Field later this year.

  4. I'm not so sure that these are particularly lavish or high end, but rather regional delicacies that get put on the menu at the ballpark. I mean I know that perogies aren't overly expensive (they aren't my favourite Polish/Ukranian food, but done right they're delicious).
