In my more charitable moments, I really do believe that people mean well (even Minnie Driver). But, perhaps because of Bruni's description of the revolting excesses at AD, I find myself just a teensy bit sympathetic to the views of an anonymous correspondant:
I am kind of agog at how very wrongheaded this seems... Which do you think goes better with a big main course of human suffering, an Auxey-Duresses red, or Gewurtztraminer?
But I don't think I am in a financial position to donate right now anyway -- maybe I'll save up my money to kick down for a special Darfur menu.
