Three Interesting Things

1. I have often enjoyed local restaurant - now chain - Busboys and Poets, but this recent "race card" idea seems silly at best and potentially harmful especially without context or training for employees, and as some commenters mentioned when folks may just want food and not conversation. 
2. This piece provides some useful context to the recent "Roseanne" cancellation.  I can certainly see why it has shocked Barr to continue to be the harmful (under the guise of edgy) person she has been for some time and now have it suddenly have consequences.  But I think consequences for harmful behavior are not a bad thing.  
3. If you missed the Twitter thread about the world's tallest waffle stack, or even if you didn't, this story about the attempt is delightful.
