You make a good point. I am tempted to think of it as all over, but have still avoided bread most all of the time. Rye bread and spelt does just fine. We just tend to find foods now which are gluten free, as a matter of how we live. It is neither the problem nor the bother we imagined.
On last month's Terri Dailies, we couldn't avoid noticing how the candidates cleave to principles by how they define Terri's plight.
We see this consistently in most every bashing of the President, as a bookmark to every summary of what is important in the news. It is the libs who remember even if we didn't. Perhaps in his case, it was a mistake of underestimating the enormity of this event. That was part, but moreover, it was a greater mistake in not realizing the impact Terri's plight hangs around the collective leftist neck like an albatross. They are obsessed with it, with wanting to MoveOn, wanting to forget, or minimize, but they just can's shake it. Unfortunately, for Fred Thompson, it was easy for us to predict the media would keep hounding him way beyond what we conservatives perceive as a gaffe to let ride.
Most every day since, it has echoed in all the major bird cage liners. This one is a bit different, coming form the American Spectator...
But if you are going to be the big man on the right, you can't be lazy. Yet you have been so. You have a responsibility to bone up on basic local issues of national import. Any old moron should know, for instance, that you can't go into Florida without having at least thought about what you would say if asked about Terri Schiavo or about the Everglades.
I have noticed of recent years in most aisles of our supermarkets there are gluten free alternatives of what I would call ordinary foods such as bread, cakes etc etc.
