• In places in the midwest, there is an almost religious respect given to the mighty Chipotle. We suspect it is not that their burritos are so excellent, although they are certainly good, but that in our fast food nation, food that actually uses fresh vegetables should be cherished.

We guess that means he’d like us to post up this one, as well, by Mr. Joe Wilcox of 101 Typepad Lane.
