Time has given Joel Stein a new food column, and his first piece for the magazine is The Hungry American: "After its first lap, globalization gets really interesting. The stuff you invented—in this culinary case, fast-food hamburgers, fried chicken, pizza and doughnuts—gets sent out into the world, is replicated by other countries and then comes back to you all crazied up, like a giant game of telephone. And if you hold that piece of Filipino fried chicken up to your ear and are really quiet, you can hear what the rest of the world thinks about us."
