"Those perfect touches become nagging—the exact pappardelle, melt-away tuna, juicy burger and day boat scallops seared on each side to a point just centimeters (sorry, learned that in Europe) beyond the elusive point where the heat barely touches in the middle."
That scallop would be a hockey puck. He means millimetres (sorry, learned that in math class).

The study suggests that while many girls have exceptional talent in math — the talent to become top math researchers, scientists and engineers — they are rarely identified in the United States. A major reason, according to the study, is that American culture does not highly value talent in math, and so discourages girls — and boys, for that matter — from excelling in the field.

Congrats on not making a homophobic slur! It seems that this is likely a big leap for you. I'm sure your mother is proud.

during the 90s heyday when i worked there, the dallas morning news had 12 critics on staff: film, music, pop culture, theater, books. out of those 12, two were female: a second-tier film critic (not the top spot, of course), and the dining critic. and i always thought to myself, well that's certainly novel but why let a GIRL do that? surely there are more-qualified males they could find. (and really, any male would automatically be more qualified.) what a relief when they hired Bill Addison. FINALLY! someone with a penis who could give food criticism the same kind of manly authority that the paper gives to all of the other disciplines. (and look how well it's worked out for them.)
i get so tired of these females (or as Luniz puts it, "chicks," although i think i'd just go with "bimbos") dominating the food criticism world. let's get some testosterone in the field, hell yeah

Apparently, if I want to read about meat, the best I'm going to do is to reread old reviews. Poor me.

Don't burn your jock strap just yet, Luniz. Liner has contributed restaurant reviews at the Observer many times over the past few years (most of them before Faries returned). Absent an announcement, it's too early to tell if she's a replacement or (as I suspect) just a temporary sub.
