I am such a peasant I have no idea what could make up a 15 course meal.

Anyway, FDR was rich, too.

You don't have to be working class or live like the working class to favor policies better for the working class, or anyway less bad, than the other guy.

Happy NY, by the way.

15 course meal? His and hers combined with seconds being served on several items? A "doggy bag" to count as a course too maybe?


President Obama grew up in an upper middle class (or maybe lower upper class) family and has never done anything to to betray his roots except for making PR statements for consumption by the gullible.

This sort of dining out is not hypocrisy, his allegations to be concerned about the poor are rank hypocrisy.

I am suitably admonished, Philo, because indeed you are right, being rich does not preclude benevolent feelings towards the poor. But when it comes to politicians I just wish they would do it on their own dollar and not mine!

And good wishes to you and yours for the New Year.

I have never managed a 15-course meal but I have, on rare occasions, tried what they call 'over here' a 'taster menu' of anywhere between seven to nine courses. Of course, the portions are very small but if the chef is good they are exquisite. Also, it forces me to try new tastes and if I hit one I really do not like it doesn't matter too much if I leave it.

Hank - 'wersyabin'? I was beginning to worry about you. All the best for the New Year.
