Re: FATFREE Digest V97 #231

Re Mike Rosesnblatt's rant/apology:

I know it's not really funny, but still, I'm sitting here laughing.

Reminds me of when we went to a restaurant that considers itself to 
be a very nice restaurant (it's mostly in their own minds--Vahl's in 
Alviso, for the locals) and, when asked about the food I had made a 
small dent in (a dish of vegies swimming in oil) I commented that it 
was a bit greasy, she loudly corrected me.  "We don't use any grease 
here.  We use only vegetable oil."  I tried to correct her perception 
of grease/oil, to the embarrassment of my boyfriend and our friends.  
Finally just gave it up.

You're right.  They just don't understand.  And it will probably 
be another generation or two before the real word actually gets 
into the mainstream (if ever--we USans seem to be a very stubborn 
lot when it comes to adjusting our attitudes).  Don't these people 
even watch TV?  Ridiculous as it is, they DO talk about oils and 
such once in awhile.  Come to think of it, most of it may be re 
how good certain ones are for you.
