Alex Balk interprets the latest lawsuit against Taco Bell's not-quite beef:

The American love of consuming dubious meatstuffs at rock-bottom prices has collided with the American love of suing anyone anywhere for any possible reason. I don't know why your president told you we need to compete more last night: So long as we're filling our bodies with obvious crap and then trying to make a buck out of that obvious crap's obvious crapness, we will be just fine. This is exactly what they talk about when they use the phrase "American exceptionalism."
