Political Abstractions and Good Food

Winter seems to be rolling in about a month early here in DC, and yesterday was the election. One wing of the corporate party won more electoral college points than the other. More drone wars killing thousands of civilians, more off-shore drilling furthering our fossil fuel addiction, and more jobs will now be shipped overseas with the soon-to-be signed Trans-Pacific Free Trade Pact. Sadly, the American people and the future of our planet is not benefiting from the destructive and exploitive nature of our current political system. As Americans, we are also harshly divided over vague and outdated ideologies, which are little more than abstract and little understood titles we hang on one another -- chief among these are capitalism and socialism. Neither in any of their original purity exist in reality today.

In better news, I have been enjoying some meals here in the Eastern Market neighborhood of DC. One of my favorite food haunts is Tortilla Cafe, 210 7th Street SE, Washington, DC. Owned and operated by and El Salvadoran family, their papusas are delicately made and delicious, their burritos are generous in size and filled with fresh ingredients, but one of my favorite items now since I have been cutting way down on my meat intake is their vegetarian taco salad -- good sized, cheaply priced and mouth-watering! If you haven't tried this humble in appearance eatery, across from the historical Eastern Market, please visit and enjoy! 

Also, want a good pizza delivery place in this area -- try NY Pizza! Cheap, delicious. I was also impressed they delivered to me during Hurricane Sandy! For Chinese delivery try Hunan Dynasty. They also have decent sushi and their Mongolian Lamb is simply mouth-watering goodness!

This may be a cold winter ahead. I hope to write more often in this blog. Bruno seems to be enjoying the cold more than me. However, when we are on the couch he curls up closer to me.
