I believe the author of the article would like to replace the word "'macaroon" with "macaron", please. Just an FYI, the terms have been known to be confused. Both are confections, but not the same. Our local bakers make lovely ones here. I believe they may be also more affordable at your local bakery, as well.

Cutting off anyone...
An individual that deliberatly cuts off a person's legs, knowing full well that at least someday that they might need them, is called a sadist, correct?

"... if the child is in fact Bieber's that Ms. Yeater will be arrested for statutory rape as it is illegal for a 19-year-old adult to have sex with a 16-year-old-minor."
SW, I wondered about that too.

I am impressed. Liver-eating Johnson. I thought most forgot about that one.
I hope you like gallows humor.
If there is a film on Native Americans, there will be inevitably a ton of jokes, dialog substitutions and etc, on the reservations, the jokes came out in droves about that one. One was, you know where McDonalds says on their marquis over umpteen billion served?
"McJohnson's--well, we only got one customer and he's a little...particular..."
Becoming a teacher of English, I had asked who I could, "if you could pick films, and show to someone who had little or no familiarity with American Cinema, what would you show them." Huge amounts of answers.
The top two, "The Godfather (1 and 2)", and "The Sting."

I will be as upfront about this as possible.
Number one is desirable destinations available. The second would be price. These two points being said, there has been, in approximately the last 7 years or so, a stronger leaning towards the most comfortable accumulation of award points that can be transferred. Points have been modestly accumulated in the form of products and services from partner organizations. Gallons of gas to flowers, hotels, wines and varied services. I like the feeling that I am building something.
I was worried I would buy excessive services or products, but according to my budget just the opposite has happened. I found I saved a little more. I felt more comfortable in my purchases and felt a sense of accomplishment. I purchased a bouquet of roses for the next six months for my beloved, and I unabashedly love it.
I was raised around planes and airports and don't feel the urge to be catered to. I know enough to know how brutally difficult airline/airport jobs are. Not just can be, but are.
Perhaps my tolerance for "the unsuitable" is high. But I prefer the long term over the short term. Flights (good, bad or otherwise) are short compared to long term benefits of partner organizations. Flights are a gamble anyway. Good crew, bad flight. Bad crew, good flight organization. It's all a gamble anyway. You pay your money, you take your chances.
I checked out a company with heavily promoted great service. There were very few partner organizations. I have not as yet flown with them.
I like to know my money is doing something. I like something that builds something for me.
I was worried it would make me spend more. Instead it helped me feel more comfortable with my choices and where I would have been reluctant to really reluctant, like flowers. I feel a little more daring. If I had wanted points, I could buy them and not risk as much on several levels.
I've found it makes me a little more romantic, maybe.
