Oprah's Got No Love for Seattle

Gayle Not at Red MillI don't plan on making posts that aren't exactly Seattle-based very often, but this is the first such exception. It is relevant though, and will all become clear in a few seconds. Plus, maybe my mentioning Oprah will get me that much closer to meeting her (watch out Stedman).

Tuesday's episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show started with a spanning_time-commendable feature. Oprah's best friend Gayle took it upon herself to eat each of GQ magazine's "20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die," taking her on a journey across the US. That alone is pretty impressive (even knowing that it was certainly all on Oprah's dime) since it's always good to hear of people taking their obsessions to the next level.

So if the feature was so great, what annoys us about it you ask? Well, as you may have heard, Seattle-favorite Red Mill Burgers is on the list. Did it warrant any coverage or even a mention? Nope. What about additional pictures or footage online? Nope. I'm not on to encumber myself with too much tech, but you can bet that if I was going to spend thousands of dollars on an unnecessary quest, I'd manage to get some digital camera pictures. So Oprah and Gayle, know that spanning_time is a little disappointed. We applaud the effort, but you can do better. Next time you make your way out to Seattle, another trip to Red Mill is in order (your treat).
