WhiteTrash BBQ -- Real Pit Barbecue from New York City. This is the story of a fire obsessed guy, living in Brooklyn, with a dream of producing award winning, competition busting, real Barbeque. Come live the dream as I compete around the country in the KCBS Championship Barbecue circuit.

The advertiser is always right?

I want to take tonight's post and salute my friend Lenn Thompson over at LennDevours for having the intestinal fortitude to do what's right and stand up to the man - or at least the man over at Dan's Papers.

For those of you who don't know Lenn, he is the writer of the column "Over the Barrel" at Dan's Paper's a smallish Long Island based newspaper. It seems that the editors didn't agree with Lenn's take on Palmer Vineyards and "that the column that is running this weekend, focusing on Palmer Vineyards, has been edited heavily and is quite different from what (I) he submitted originally."

Unwilling to be bowed by the corporate machine, Lenn just published the un-edited article on his blog. You can read it here. Go get 'em Lenn!

I really don't know much about wine. I know, I hear you gasp in disbelief, but I don't. (Beer - well that's another story.) So I rely on people like Lenn to inform me and educate me on wines and in particular the wines of Long Island. I'm very glad that he stood up and did what's right and I am sorely disappointed by the editors of Dan's Papers.

That's so lame of Dan's Papers to make such a radical change to someone's work. I always suspected those people (and the majority of the rich and beautiful out there) were a bunch of tools, and this just confirms my suspicions (once again). If I could tell you the number of times I've heard some rich (or famous) asshole using the phrase "Do you know who I am?") in the 30+years I've spent on the east end.....I'm gonna throw this up on my blog, too....'F' Dan's papers....
