Thanks for the link, Dan! :-)

re: food expenditure in restaurants - I saw the original story and thought "history blindness strikes again."

Not very long ago, *most* urban dwellers got almost all their food outside the home ... because their dwellings didn't include kitchens. Many didn't even have heat, e.g. fireplaces.

So this is actually not a new amazing thing. It's just a return to an old practice, this time due to efficiency rather than necessity.
