Worst Colleges in America
Worst colleges in America

The best part: examples of classes you could take at these fine institutions. At Cornell: Post-National Gastroidentities. "We will attempt to answer the question of how food, cuisine, and gastronomy play an important part both in the strategies to instrument normalcy through the imagination of the modern Nation-State, and the ways in which discourses affirming nation, race, ethnicity, hospitality, and the universality of humanity interact with each other fragmenting the national gastronomic field and undermining the unpolluted self-understanding of the modern Nation-State."

Man, you just can't make that stuff up.

I didn't know there was a "the question" about it all.

Does this mean a side of Kimchi, while having Swedish Meatballs with brown rice, and a small cup of Boston Clam Chowder on the side and a Caesar salad with a piece of focaccia bread mean I'm approaching an unpolluted self-understanding of the modern Nation-State? (I really do have weird meals when I finishing up left overs but then, I never claimed to be normal).

Mmm, international leftover buffets. That's another thing I wasn't doing during the last several months: cooking. We have eaten a LOT of pizza and cereal!

Now I'm craving Swedish meatballs.
