You may have seen the Los Angeles Times Magazine article a couple of weeks ago about the man freed from prison after 13 years due to DNA testing. In the article, the author said that during the interview he offered to buy the ex-prisoner lunch anywhere he wanted. "He eagerly agrees and we drive for miles." Where did they end up?--Hometown Buffet!
Now if offered a free lunch anywhere, I think I would have gone somewhere else. But actually, I don't mind going to Hometown Buffet a couple of times a year.
