Pissing off the good people at Pop N Sons

Folks don't appreciate smart-ass writers intruding on their beloved diner. I learned this today when I saw that the article I wrote about Pop N Sons prompted a slew of comments, all of which pretty much called for my head on a platter.

Incidentally, I'm not sure why most of the comments assume that I am a woman. Maybe they missed my byline, saw the gal in the picture and thought that was me. Perhaps the folks at Pops consider it an insult to refer to a man as a woman? Not sure. Since I'm such a nice guy, though, I've decided to respond, civilly, with a playlist. Here you go, Pop N Sons workers, patrons and defenders. Enjoy.
