Say you want to review lots of restaurants under standardized criteria. (A homage to
FiveThirtyEight's Burrito Bracket, but not nationwide or Mexican.) You don't have access to a pro panel, nor the stomach to do every restaurant that qualifies. How do you decide where to go?

A personal philosophy, riffed from Daniel Pinkwater's "Big Orange Splot":

New York City is me and I am it. My city is where I like to be; I hope I can make it look like all my dreams.

Good morning, happy Wednesday!

This is going to be a politically charged day; take care to unplug if you need to preserve your sanity.

Look out for your fellows who might be dealing with difficult emotions. Be with them, hold their anger, fear and pain with them. Be kind.

I just spent a bit adding to @BotFinds, my Robot Finds Kitten homage bot. A few corpora, a few new messages - hopefully the message variety will increase.

(I know I could have just taken all the NKIs directly from the original, but chose not to for the practice using Tracery grammars. I am tempted to dump the Nethack rumors.tru and rumors.fal in though, we'll see.)
