Channel-surfing the vast cultural wasteland: “Harley and the Davidsons,” a new miniseries debuting today on Discovery, tells the story of the three men who developed the iconic rumbling motorcycle (The Clicker, Page B4).
Spoiler alert: The invention isn’t fully realized until Episode Four, when the trio begins sporting doo-rags and gray pony tails, and referring to their wives as “my old lady.”
Keep it clean: Chipotle Mexican Grill will open its first restaurant in Everett next month (Page A9). The chain is known for using locally sourced ingredients and for not using anything that contains GMOs.
But the most important ingredient at Chipotle these days is bleach, or whatever sanitizing agent they use in the squirt bottles.
Don’t know much about history: On this day in 1882, the nation’s first Labor Day was celebrated with a parade in New York (Today in History, Page B4).
The festivities were short-lived, however, as all laborers age 10 and older had to return to work to finish their 16-hour workdays.
