Cosmo Kramer Does Not Subscribe to the New York Times for its CFL Coverage

(Note: It's Broken.)

Looking for the spread for today's Grey Cup in the Sports Section of The New York Times -- I felt like a wager, it was the only way for me to take an interest -- I couldn't even find a mention of the Grey Cup, the most important sporting event in the Canadian calendar?

In other news, I hear that US CFL players who as a condition of their contracts had it that they be paid in US$, now wish to be paid in loons. As my old roommate would say, "Unlucky."

PS What is the spread anyhow? No matter. No bother. Going to make some Onion Soup with my new super duper broth pot.

Our Man Harland

Contrary to Harland's own imaginings, he did not serve in the Civil War or in fact was a commissioned officer of the Union Army. He was, however, by all accounts a true 'Southern Gentleman' (whatever that's supposed to mean).

Weirdly, someone in Nevada made an image of the Harland that can be seen from space.

Alternative Carbon Fuel Sources; Something Very Russ Meyers About This

Personally, I am on occasion a friend of the Colonel and still regret missing his first 'store' when we were passing through Kentucky. Wikipedia includes this helpful note:

To this day, the Colonel's secret flavor recipe of 11 herbs and spices remains one of the best-kept trade secrets in business. According to a profile of KFC done by the Food Network television show Unwrapped, portions of the secret spice mix are made at different locations in the United States, and the only copy of the recipe is kept in a vault in corporate headquarters.

That said, the fried chicken available at Publix Supermarket in Naples is very, very difficult to beat. I should be ordering my breasts and steamed Gulf shrimp (both served chilled by me) for pickup on boxing day.
