Because it's her 64th birthday, Serious Eats declared today to be Paula Deen Day. (It's also Dolly Parton's, Janis Joplin's, and 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker Junior Seau's birthday. What, no love for them?)
And while some people are flogging listicles of the 50 most important people, others are publishing listicles of the 50 most loathsome Americans of 2010. And #50 on the list? Paula Deen. On her birthday. How cruel!
