has fancy plans, and pants to match

Peter King is the type of person who talks up that "new, little steak house in town": Morton's or the Capital Grille. And full disclosure, I like both restaurants a lot; but when you get down to it, they're both chain restaurants. Very good chain restaurants, but their menu and quality doesn't differ much from Pittsburgh to Cleveland to Boston.The sad thing is that, like the college kid who pretends to love Jazz but only owns Kind of Blue and doesn't know Coltrane is on it, King actually thinks he's a coffeenerd.
You can drink whatever you want but pretending that Starbucks makes you sophisticated or cultured is just sad. Not realizing that your pumpkin lates and somebody else's megasoda are, like, exactly the same thing shows a level of empathy and respect for other's autonomy normally found in 13 year olds.
