Saturday morning musings on comments
Federal Hill Jim sent me an e-mail wondering why I hadn't published his comment under Keep Off the Grass when there were so many more inflammatory comments that I had published. I wrote back and told him I hadn't killed any comments in recent memory. That got me to wondering if anyone else's comments had disappeared.
Also as regular readers know, the Dining@Large specialty is not to stay on topic, and some of the most interesting discussions have nothing to do with the original post. For instance, ...
...this astounding assertion under The Bacon Flowchart:
Molasses improves any dessert.
ARE YOU PEOPLE OUT OF YOUR MINDS. Now if you had said chocolate, or ice cream, or almond extract or almost anything but molasses, I would have gone along with it for the sake of argument.
And please understand, I'm from the South. I love molasses, but this is unconscionable.
Finally, I've gotten several good tips in comments about openings and closings, including Mari Luna in Pikesville; but of course I didn't write them down because it's so easy to remember them and sift through 10,000 comments to find them again, so please feel free to repost them below.
