Question: Why is it that either on TV or at the movies that when people order takeout to eat at home, it's almost ALWAYS Chinese food? Do the Chinese have a lock on takeout?
Answer: Much as I love all the questions people send, this one seemed to generate special affection — as well as some extended discussions with the folks around Mailbag Central. That said, there is no Chinese cartel dominating TV takeout. For one thing, I have seen a lot of pizza deliveries.
