Following on from the previous green onion post, I've just had hamburger made with chopped green onion mixed in. If anything, an even bigger difference than with the lambburger, somehow. And good. Reminiscent of some dim sum.

Which I've belatedly found a source for in Bloomington. Not fresh, oh no. But Obo's in Eastland Plaza had some frozen varieties, at least ha gao (shrimp dumplings) and taro buns, and they're quick and decent, at least to a deprived palate.

Oh my, it's been a while, hasn't it. A bunch of this will be out of date. Oh well.

Randomly, it's "ha gao" if you want to pronounce it correctly in Cantonese (I assume you want Cantonese, since it's "ha"...)

I was going to ask what the difference in pronunciation between ha gao and ha gow was, but then I saw I'd left off the 'w'.

The article you link to doesn't support this claim. It says that Yoo advised that it was within the President's Constitutional war powers, which is not the same thing as "okay." And, rather obviously if you read the history of World War II, it is within the President's Constitutional war powers ... unless you want to argue that FDR and Truman behaved unconstitutionally when they ordered the bombardment of German and Japanese cities?
