Panhandles--the actual handle on a metal pan--can become very hot when set on the open flame of a kitchen stove or roaring campfire, and so too can the debate about their geographical namesakes. Tensions run high when new panhandle status is awarded and (painfully) denied. The F.B.I. is still investigating two murders from 1991 in Michigan after a panhandle application was shot down for the eighth time. (Michigan was applying to be the official panhandle of the United States, a title that Florida has also been pursuing.)
"The Oklahoma Panhandle is the king of all American panhandles," said Bobby Randolph, a resident of the new Massachusetts Panhandle. "We can't compete with that, but we are happy to finally be recognized officially as a panhandle."
Randolph is referring to the thirty-plus years that it took a small blip in the southern Massachusetts border to become a panhandle. The area is just over four square miles and is regularly referred to as the Mass. Pimple. It is predominately rural and forest-covered, but is home to over 500 residents. On the eastern edge of the handle is the Congamond Lakes, a recreational area very popular during the shortened northern summer.

Atlanta, GA--The rapidly growing restaurant/arcade Damon Buster's opens a new location every two weeks in the United States. The Atlanta-based chain will quickly overtake Dave & Buster's, the restaurant's chief competition, at its current rate of expansion. "Our policy is to grow, grow, grow, and then grow," said Damon Buster, the company's founder and president. "We offer a very unique product that our loyal customers appreciate, a product very much the same as Dave & Buster's, but at the same time, very different." Mr. Damon Buster also wanted to point out that MLB's Johnny Damon and Buster Posey are in no way involved with the chain, as one recent national television commercial suggested.
