I look at Hillary’s convenient “concussion” with more than a soupcon of skepticism.

The fault lies with Congress, however. They should have demanded that she testify weeks ago.

It was announced on Saturday. She was suffering from a “stomach virus” and “fainted and hit her head”. She did not go to the hospital, but she will be “unable to testiffy on Benghazi” this week. She’s resting “at home”.

Do I sound skeptical?

How that excuses her from testifying is beyond me. My friend’s son had his 4th concussion last month and is still expected to attend his college classes and practice with his team.

Selling fake soup is a soupcon. But as Dr. Fraud said,’Sometimes a con of soup is just a con of soup.’

This is the best commentary I’ve read on Hillary’s notable absence from this week’s testimony so far. Every word is delicious!

Well, luv, as I'm living in Panama, I suppose it must be sancocho, the traditional Panamanian chicken soup.

Do please make it with potatoes, not yucca... and, to compensate for the usual blandness of Panameno fare, add a good bit of sage and a dash (per pot) of hot sauce.

I've never figured out how Latin America gets the reputation for very spicy food. Sure, some Mexican cuisine is highly spiced, as are some Caribbean dishes, but traditional dishes (called tipico, btw) are extraordinarily bland to US tastes. There's even a joke about this.

"What does Columbian food taste like? Like Panamanian food, but not so highly spiced. < / rimshot>". Ah, well...that's why things like culantro and achiote exist, I suppose; to allow correction of this defect.

;^)

Nobody exports bland food, ergo all American interaction with foreign food is with that of the more spicy stuff.

We went to see The Hobbit Friday - watched in 3D and it was amazing! My husband, son and daughter went back on Sunday and watched in regular digital and said it was still as amazing. There is a really good book on the making/storyboards available at Target if you are a huge fan...

Very good observation, Dave, and -- now that I think on it a bit -- almost surely accurate.

Tell you how non-spice-oriented the Panamenos are (how do you make an 'n' with a tilde ('~') above it, btw? The 'n' in Panameno should have one, but I don't know how to do it.). Every Christmas season, I make a lot of old-fashioned gingerbread cookies. First batch I made this year were well-received (Panamenos LOVE sweets, period), but I received several comments along the lines of 'are all Americano galletas (cookies) so spicy?' Somewhat ironic, in that I already had reduced the amount of ginger and nutmeg in the recipe and had omitted the cloves entirely, for just that reason: Panamanian non-love of spices. Go figure, eh?

Unfortunately, Hillary didn't land on her butt. She landed on her head. And she got a concussion. And a special kind of retrograde amnesia. She can remember everything except if it is related to Benghazi. That's all a total blank.

aha! well i was a Latin American studies major, undergrad prior to law school and i lived in Colombia and sancocho is a very popular dish and i know that if you are very lucky you get the CHICKEN’S FOOT in your bowl. Cilantro is to barf, i just can’t stomach it. i recall in Colombia that they did use is liberally and i couldn’t eat anything that had it in. My colleague just returned from her vacation Costa Rica and brought me some Cafe Britt, which i had requested. Just spent an hour hearing about the trip. She took her niece who just graduated from a grad program in occupational therapy, on my recommendation. How long have you been in the Panama?
