Discovery of the day: mole sauce.



Americans love Mexican food. We consume nachos, tacos, burritos, tortas, enchiladas, tamales and anything resembling Mexican in enormous quantities. We love Mexican beverages, happily knocking back huge amounts of tequila, mezcal and Mexican beer every year. We love Mexican people—as we sure…

The funniest review ever, especially from Christine T. 

Definitely a gift for someone you… hate! :D

A Way Up

Two years ago, Boston Globe reporter Billy Baker wrote a profile about two impoverished brothers who came from a difficult home, basically raising and supporting themselves, while also succeeding academically — at the tops of their classes — at a prestigious Boston school.

George and Johnny Huynh were, at the time 15 and 17, and they were basically each others only real support as they got themselves through the vaunted Boston Latin school, dreaming of better circumstances.

The family had little to no money; their father had committed suicide, and their mother struggled — she spoke little English, had suffered “private horrors” from her husband, and said she battled mental problems. The brothers said they could barely communicate with her.

And the brothers still had to deal with the regular problems that all teenagers experience.
