Nice tomatoes, and the food's good too

As sometimes happens on letters pages in magazines, a spat has erupted on that one belonging to TV Guide. A couple of weeks ago, they published a Reader Jeer complaining about Giada De Laurentiis' trademark cleavage display. The following week, the letters page seems to be about two to one in favor of letting Giada dress however she wants. My perspective is as follows:

Lighten up. Giada is an excellent and creative cook with excellent TV presence, and she is also an attractive woman with large breasts. Proceeding on the assumption that she has final say over her onscreen wardrobe, I'd say she's earned the right to do the show on the beach in a Wicked Weasel if she wants (though that wouldn't exactly be a cooking-friendly wardrobe -- maybe add some board shorts :-) ). It's like Muhammad Ali -- at the end of the day, he may have been too political and too much of a braggart for many people, but in his day he was that damned good and had pretty much earned the right to speak his mind. (Compare incompetent skank Sandra Lee and grouchy, cheating Barry Bonds.)

So ease up on the cleaage already.

Amazing blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you suggest starting with a free platform like
Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any ideas? Thanks!

Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.

Would you be interested in exchanging links or
maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?

My site addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I feel we
could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send
me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Great
blog by the way!

I have been browsing online greater than three hours these days,
yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
It's lovely value sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net will probably be a lot more helpful than ever before.
