DON GORSKE, THE WORLD SALUTES

DON GORSKE, THE WORLD SALUTES YOU:

Gorske, who downed his 19,000th Big Mac on Wednesday, said he wouldn't know what else to eat if it weren't for Big Macs.

"I'd be clueless," he said, adding that he ate a piece of pizza recently, but it "just wasn't the same."

Speaking of clueless, Robert Fisk in Baghdad is loading up on siege cheese:

At the Tabarak store in English, the "God Bless You" store I put 24 bags of crisps, boxes of long-life cheese and 30 cans of the most tasteless soft drink in the whole world on the counter. After a siege or two the 1982 Israeli siege of Beirut was my first you develop an uncanny knack of knowing what to hunt for.

Fisk has foolishly announced to the world his abundant supplies of crap food. Hostile children will soon assault him and steal it all. That's if these store owners don't get him first:

At Baalbek Nuts I bought pistachios from the Lebanese owners, who answered my request for their thoughts on the war with the typically Lebanese response of "no problem". It's a lie, as we all knew.

Calling Lebanese liars. And Bob wonders why he always gets beaten up.
