  1. A little follow-up.... Raising a final toast to Rose, the Clyde’s customer who charmed and mystified, by John Kelly, November 20, 2018, on washingtonpostcom.
  2. We use ours every day. A little butter or oil prevents major sticking. If you don't leave it out all night and wash it before you go to bed you should not have a problem. Never had a mess a Scotch-Brite sponge couldn't handle. I don't recall ever having to use Brillo or SOS on this (not sure that would be good for the pan).

    The Blues Brothers

    You should grab a copy of Albert Murray's Stomping the Blues for a scholarly explication on the nature and various expressions of the blues idiom. Here is a link to an excerpt of the book discussing folk art and fine art in the blues context. I think this may read upon the point you were making. I would say that Blind Willie Johnson falls into the folk art camp and musicians like Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, and Count Basie are more squarely in the fine art business. Yet, they all are firmly rooted in the blues.
  11. I think Foobooz is engaging in Trumpian logic - why import anything when we can make it ourselves in Philly. Sometimes things like the Commerce Clause endanger local businesses. Maybe we ought to take a close look at that.

    Our refrigerator is seldom without a tub of hommus from the Lebanese Taverna Market over in Lee Heights in Arlington. Once we took a cooking class there with a group and made some ourselves. Frankly, they make it better and it is not that much more expensive than a DIY effort.
