Lileks Watch, Day It Seems Like An Eternity

Today, Lileks scoffs at the idea that the US might possibly be slightly culpable for the condition of Cambodian refugees on account of our having illegally bombed the shit out of their country for three years. Nuance, pah!

But the really funny part is where he, James Lileks -- the man who has a selected night where he takes his daughter to Chuck E. Cheese; the man who thinks burgers and fries are as exotic as an evening meal needs to get; the man who is a familiar face to the underpaid saps at his local Taco Bell -- refuses to buy his daughter a mini-can of Pringles, because they aren't very nutritious.

Not like the wholesome food you get at Taco Bell.
