    Towleroad’s “swell addition of throwing cråp at you when all you really want to do is read content sucks the big one. Why the heck you feel you need to do this is a mystery.

    Even worse is that he sends armed thugs to your home to FORCE you to look at it. (And don’t try moving to a different country–his agents will track you down, tie you to a chair, and INSIST you look at every single item on the site.)

    If I remember the myth correctly from Paul Harvey’s “The Rest of the Story,” Cesar salads are, of all things, Mexican, specifically from Tijuana. Movie stars vacationing in Mexico stopped in at the Ritz Hotel one Sunday afternoon on their way back to Hollywood and supposedly asked for good food; the desperate chef threw together some egg, anchovies, garlic, lemon etc. together, whisked it up, and served it over lettuce leaves The “Cesar” isn’t Italian or named after Julius–it’s from Cesar Ritz, hotel owner.

    “Nobody doesn’t like…” is NOT a double negative. In a double negative, the two terms cancel each other out unintentionally. But when one reinforces the other or stands on its own in a disconnected manner, that’s a different story. Just because there are two words with negative connotations does not mean it’s a double negative.

    “Nobody” is a way to describe the people referred to; “doesn’t like” describes their feelings.

    And double negatives are not always wrong: “Jim is not unaware of the facts.” is correct, as the sentence is meant to be positive, and this is a strong way to make the point.

    But…the word to describe the Carpaccio-eater’s diet is “regimeN”, not “regimenT”

    So there.

    H/T to The Gregg Reference Manual for the example about Jim’s awareness. Gregg is my bible.
