Dang that's a good looking burger. What is that, pulled pork?
•  Fire-roasted double cheeseburger, $15: Angus chuck and Angus brisket topped with garlic aioli, aged cheddar and caramelized balsamic onions.


Also, regarding traffic, to quote wikipedia
The stadium is the only NFL stadium that is completely inaccessible via public transportation, including bus, light rail, or people mover systems. This is partly because for a long time, Arlington was the largest city in the United States with no mass transit system; much of the sales tax money that would normally go towards building one is being used to pay for both AT&T Stadium and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Yeah, Bushie wants none of that public transportation nonsense.

But seriously I hope he treats himself to a real specialty burger at Fuddrucker's and not just bacon.

Are small towns "rural" or "suburban"?

Rural, I would think -- though personally I'd argue that they should be a category of their own.

The Census Bureau identifies two types of urban areas:

Urbanized Areas (UAs) of 50,000 or more people
Urban Clusters (UCs) of at least 2,500 and less than 50,000 people.

“Rural” encompasses all population, housing, and territory not included within an urban area.

So urban clusters (=small towns) are not rural, since they are a form of urban areas.

In Europe small towns are urban, I would think that was also the case in the US. It makes little sense to call them suburban.

In the US urban has the sense of being a part of a larger metropolitan area. The Census definition of UC recognizes that there are pockets in rural areas that otherwise meet the technical definitions of urban. As I noted in my post earlier in the thread UC's that are close enough to provide significant commuters to a larger urban center could be exurbs if there's a lot of growth happening around them, but otherwise fit as rural in the urban/suburban/rural divide.

You can be pro-choice and still think this vile human being is an HP.

No, not really. I read some snippets from Kapital and consumed a lot of second-hand material in the form of other writers' analyses back in university but admit to lacking academic rigour when it comes to reading the original works of political philosophers. It is very time consuming and I've always been more of a big picture sort of person. Having to sift through all the minutia is exhausting, seldom seems rewarding, and usually leads to misinterpretations of author intent.

Marxism is only really interesting to me insofar as it can be scavenged for some useful ideas and phrases.
