Sorry to hear that, Al, and like so many others, I wish you the best. Things aren't as bad as they used to be, but not as good as they once were ... so what else is new?

I'm with Lauren, though. Cheap beer sucks. Two words: Sam Adams. Or one word: homebrew. If you can't make better homebrew than Bud/Coors/Miller Li(gh)t(e), cut back on something else and go get some Sam Adams. :-)

Hamburger? Nothing at all wrong with hamburger! It's one of the basic food groups (along with caffeine, malted barley, saturated fat, and aspartame).
