A little natural law; a little common sense

In a recent column titled "Expert Nonsense," Andrée Seu argues that the wholesale discouraging of women from nursing in the 50s was "the beginning of the cult of the food experts."

It's a nice little piece; worth the couple minutes to read it if you haven't already. A great line: "There is little in life more obvious than the connectivity between a baby's mouth and a woman's lactating breast."

Pssht, no kidding. Remember carbo-loading? And now carbs are poison? Bring on the fudgsicles. In two weeks.

Oh, poor sweet Rebekah! Did you give up chocolate for Lent? Are you insane?

I liked the article. But there's no such thing as organic honey. There is real, raw honey and that clover crap.

Come to think of it, I gave up fudgsicles too! Thank God there's still M&Ms, Snickers, Reece's, Butterfingers, Baby Ruths, Godivas.... :D
