Scoop


Turns out, John Kerry doesn't like tomatoes or the products thereof. His wife is a ketchup heiress. I can imagine the spin Bill O'Reilly will come up with when he gets hold of this news. Especially given that we "liberals", of which John Kerry is one, are supposedly so busy dismantling the fabric of American life with all our anti-family rhetoric. (Examples posted here daily). There's gotta be something in this story that will further prove how we are responsible for the demise of marriage. (Although we are clearly doing something wrong. Massachusettes, that bastion of liberalism that is represented by Senator Kerry, has the lowest divorce rate in the country).

Let me get out ahead of this story: marriage requires respect, understanding and tolerance. I myself married a man who hates beets. And yet, somehow, we make it work. That's the real story: two people who prize their love and commitment above condiments or root vegetables. The Kerrys differ on their view of celery as well. But there are more to a marriage than sharing a crudite platter. Like whose turn it is to pick the en suite movie.

Which is worse, refusing tomato-based products like Kerry or demanding only Hannity like Cheney?

Speakinmg of Hannity, I was in Manhattan last year and I saw Sean Hannity.

I vomited on sight.

The Sensible One and I have discussed vegetables a little more since this post of yours, Lorraine. We have exhausted the fish so now it's the turn of vegetation. We have decided that I get custody of carrots should we ever part, but she has insisted on the garlic.
