The Social Commentary of a Burger

The burger is a symbol of everything American. Straightforward, egalitarian, substantial, and good-natured, they can also be a little bloody at times. A great burger, regardless of regional differences, instills a sense of optimism and fulfillment, that all is right at the table or the counter or the wood-grain, screwed-to-floor, fast-food booth. At its best, it eliminates the need for conversation or the urge to glance up at the TV over the bar.
