In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

Dear Blowhards --

Low-carb guru Dr. Michael Eades pays an entertainingly cranky visit to Disneyland. Verdict? "Carb heaven."

Eades' book "The Protein Power Life Plan" (which he co-wrote with his wife Dr. Mary Dan Eades) is an excellent place for those tempted to begin cranking back on the carbs to start their reading.

The Eadeses also make substantial appearances in Tom Naughton's resourceful and informative documentary "Fat Head." I interviewed Tom: Part One, Part Two, and a return visit.

Have you watched the night time segments on the Food Network? Between Unwrapped, Food Network Challenges and all the state fairs they cover, there's not one thing food they showcase that isn't covered in in 2 sticks of butter and half a pound of sugar. Okay, so maybe it's a hyperbole, but there's some truth to that observation.

As much as I love that network, Ellie Krieger may be the only chef that makes sense. And I haven't seen her around in a while.

Disney World is the same. Plus, the food tastes terrible. It's not even good grease-soaked garbage.
