I doubt it's sarcasm. "Chemical free" dry cleaners tend to use liquid silicone, apparently. A lot of people have weirdly narrow definitions of "chemical", which basically amounts to "bad"...

United Skates. Not a subculture that I knew anything about, but it still struck a nerve and was sad. I wonder if the film itself will revive enough interest to bring back a few rinks in major...

That's not true, first of all, and it would be irrelevant even if it was, because that's not the point.
