t scratch the surface of homemade flavor
January 30, 2002
I’ve never been much of a cake lover, at least if the cake in question has a springy, box-mix consistency. For a couple of generations now, the box mix has defined the cake served at birthdays and other celebratory occasions and is, well, pretty darned boring. But when we Americans think “cake,” that’s what comes to mind. I recall a TV commercial for cake mix that ran when I was a child or maybe it was a couple of commercials for different brands of cake mix that have now run together in my head. It doesn’t matter, because Duncan Hines, Betty Crocker and the like were all trying for the same effect. Anyway, the memorable image was a close-up of a fork pressing down on a slice of cake that obediently sprang back into shape. The slogan that stayed with me was “tastes as good as homemade.”

Hate crimes bill
January 30, 2002
To the editor: I heard on NPR today that one of our state representatives is submitting a hate crimes bill again in this year’s session. Why? The criminal statutes that are now in effect should be enforced instead of generating new law. Does anyone remember Jesse Dirkhising? He was a young boy who was kidnapped, sodomized and murdered by two avowed homosexuals in Arkansas. This happened during the same period of the Matthew Sheppard murder in Wyoming. Sheppard’s murder was horrific as all murders are, and because of his homosexuality, it gave renewed vigor to state and federal elected representatives to demand or sponsor various hate crime initiatives. Not much was said about Jesse’s fate at the national and local level. We have sentencing guidelines for particularly vicious crimes. Once again, why make new law that is not needed?
