And the Gut Check Thing of the Year Award Goes to...




... the Not-So-Mighty Dollar


A no-brainer, really. What else did we talk about, really? Through most of the year, the cost of food increased. The economy continues its course down the crapper, taking more than a few local restaurants -- that is, livelihoods -- with it. I don't have anything more to say, except that I hope 2009 won't end on such a glum note.

Gut Check will be updated sporadically through the rest of this week. Monday, we'll be back at full force, with (I think) a new look for the new year.
