Some really bad ribs inspired John Markus to become a decorated pitmaster and one of the most influential people in barbecue.
It's still only August, but already the predictions that this would be an exceedingly banal presidential election campaign look like they've already come true. This week's campaign news might be summed up as an elementary school playground shouting match: "You're a bigot!" "No, you're a bigot!" Sigh.
