Your appetite for the next James Bond film was probably whet when Daniel Craig, as Bond, escorted the Queen of England to the 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremonies in a fantasy parachuting sequence.

The food gap, as Winne refers to it, is the gap between the ability of the middle- and upper-classes to access high quality, nutritious food at an affordable price and with relative ease, while on the other side of the chasm there are millions of poor people who lack access and an ability to pay for the same high-quality food as their middle-class neighbors.
In a way, it can be understood how Americans see all people with varying degrees of African ancestry as being black, but…
I know its been a minute since I last wrote but in my defense I have been working ten hour days, building my own empire on a computer that finally crapped on me last week. Now I am handy-capped with the beta of all computers, a PC. Blah.

The block in Champaign had 82 jaywalking arrests of black people from 2007 to 2011, the highest total in the city, and more than the total number of white people arrested (72) in the entire city combined.
Robert Vuijsje, a Dutch journalist and writer, published his first novel Alleen maar nette mensen, or Only Decent People in 2008.
