Kevin seems to cover food a lot. My feeling after eating at theme parks is it is NOT a necessary evil. The theming, atmosphere, and food variety that is proported to be offered at Disney theme parks, especially at Disneyland, the Magic Kingdom, and EPCOT, are not the culinary dreamland and the best of the class. They are merely hotel quality foods served at a mass scale at captive audiences with above average theme park prices. The meals are not that great. They are serviceable. It is unlikely that I will send the food back, but sometimes seeing the bill might make me up-chuck. Another example, the Food and Wine fair is a rip-off. Why not find out the food menus offered at these fairs and just go to a local restaurant to experience a likely substitute? You'll pay less and get significantly larger portions. You might even get an authentic version.
Whenever I can, I will bring in some take-out lunch, which are mostly cold sandwiches. If I had to eat dinner, I'll grab the least expensive since the quality is the same at a higher priced offering. I tend to go to a mid-ranged cafeteria style restaurant rather than a Blue Bayou type of indoor restaurant.
As for the article, its chicken. I suppose there are better ways to cook it. The prices seem reasonable, but it's "mall" food, which I define as slightly more expensive at a premium location. You might want to visit the unadorned chicken stand where the prices might be 20% less.
I watched a documentary on WWII flyers the other day, on Bigraphy Channel, I think. Very well made. Had actors do "younger versions" of the flyers, and attempted a seamless mesh to the actual, still-living flyer. Andy Rooney went up in a bomber as part of his reporting duties. He didn't appear too comfortable remembering the experience. A refreshing, humble difference from his 60 Minutes appearances. Some great color (possibly colorized) film of actual war footage.
