Chas. Marshburn comments on COF and his coffee issue

Comments re article 66039 Epicurean COF Best choose one or tother and stick with it

Charles Marshburn writes:
Sounds like the man had rather have his catfish fried rather than blackened and his okra fried rather than pickled! Surely he doesn't eat bologna for breakfast along with a biscuit with chocolate gravy! -Charles Marshburn
Thanks Mr. Marshburn We don't know the culinary habits of the COF - just that he is a man of rare gentile refinement and elegant manners; we'd suspect his diet is Mediterranean in all respects, and that, yes, his catfish isn't sissified, he or his servants fry his okra, and of course he'd have proper breakfast of fried bologna and a dessert of crumbled biscuit and chocolate gravy - almost every morning when he isn't eating eggs benedict. Up at Knifley, good manners dictate that does not comment on another's diet. Can invite serious repercussions - something as dire as an arm wrestling contest to settle the insult, once and for all, for instance. If a body prefers the Reagan vegetable, tomato catchup - even on lemon pie - that's a body's own business. - ED WAGGENER
