Since we started watching food shows, my fiancee and I suddenly turn into douchebag judges and feel the need to critique everything.
During the past year of local chef interviews, no topic has been more polarizing than reality television. Some chefs would gladly take a turn on television in order to raise their profiles in the kitchen, while others don't even own a remote control.

Are reality cooking shows eroding our capacity to enjoy a dish without critiquing various aspects?
Pop-culture website Topless Robot has a list of "10 notable real-life superheroes (aside from Phoenix Jones)," and a former Kansas Citian is on the list.

NPR's Michael Katzif really loves Lawrence's Hospital Ships. Back in May, the news organization spotlighted the band's song "Honey, Please." Now NPR has featured Hospital Ships on its Tiny Desk Concert series. Take a listen to the 11-minute-ish concert here.
In the past few weeks, Slate and NPR have waxed poetic about the ubiquitous plastic cup. While that cup might have seen you through high school parties in the woods and college parties indoors, it's hard to believe that red Solo Cups have ever held anything great inside them. Has it ever been what's inside the cup that mattered to you?
Honesty, what you said is ridiculous. Anyone who lives in a developed country and eats…
