Sick day

Proper food-preservation techniques are important, is all I'm going to say. Back tomorrow.

Eating the potato salad that's been sitting out for 3 hours at the family picnic again?

Sorry to hear you're unwell. Feel better soon. My little guy, who has an upset stomach today, recommends Ritz Crackers. Nabisco better be sending him checks.

Feel better soon, Ezra.

Get better and stay hydrated, esp. if the sluices are open at both ends.

Cigarettes and gin are what you need. Not just little puffs and sips. Gusto. Manly man stuff.

Here it is, the first round of "Exra Klein is unwell." ( )

(from chaotic debauchery to inadequately cautious sous vide -- a metaphor for our times!)

Do get well soon. But isn't it nice that Ezra has a job where he isn't forced to show up at work when sick? Shouldn't every American be able to take a sick day when they are truly sick and not have to worry about getting fired?

EzKlei UpThro? FinReg lonely.

And you still managed to get out an edition of Wonkbook?

Like a champ, I tells ya, like a champ!

Feel better.

Also: will this dampen your enthusiasm for sous-vide cooking?

Posted by: adamiani | May 18, 2010 1:10 PM | Report abuse

I'm definitely thinking a little too much sous vide ....

No posts today? I demand a refund!

Take care of yourself, Ezra - there's a nasty bug going around that initially seems like food poisoning but can wipe you out for several days. Allow yourself to be out of commission for a few days if you need to. We'll soldier on somehow.

That's unpossible, Klein. The FDA is supposed to guarantee your food safety? What's up?

Aw, cmon Ez.

Elections are gonna happen. Your side lost and is waking up to the reality of the rest of the nation. Your vacuum views are not shared outside your tent. This healthcare law you helped sell is being rejected by the American people.

Wise up, and don't get yourself sick over it. Best save your off time for November if you've got a delicate tummy.
