    As to food, what's your favorite hot sauce? I put Texas Pete at the top, but I like Louisiana and Krystal. And pepper sauce on turnip greens....mmmmmm.
    Louisiana is my favorite, I think. That's what I've got in the cupboard.

    Catfish and grits.

    A boner inducing meal if ever there was one.

    As for your non-beige foods, they're almost always drowned in fat. It's like eating a crisco caserole made with lard, butter chunks, and globules of chicken fat subtly flavored with blandspice and served with a double thick oil sauce.
    Wait a minute, you're from Maryland! Aside from the crabcakes, we have chicken boxes and pit beef stands, sour beef and snowballs! Yeah, it's all delicious and I wouldn't trade it for anything, but it doesn't seem like solid footing to take shots at the (equally delicious) biscuits, grits, and other mouth-watering beige foods. You don't exactly have avocados and tofu as your regional cuisine...

    I haven't really read much John Grisham, though. Wasn't the movie Serpent and the Rainbow made out of one of his books, or am I mistaken?
    I love Grisham: A Time To Kill, The Pelican Brief, The Firm, The Runaway Jury, etc..Not sure about Serpent and the Rainbow though.

    Tell the truth.

    Apparently the Serpent and the Rainbow is Wade Davis. I don't know why I thought it was Johnathan Grisham! Ha ha.

    I don't usually care about the biography of authors, so there are probably many I don't know about; wasn't Robert Jordan a Southerner? I used to like Laurell K. Hamilton, though I hear she mostly just writes erotic horror nowadays.

    I loved The Dangerous Lives of Altar Boys by Chris Fuhrman (who sadly died shortly after completing the book); I would recommend that novel to anyone interested in the city of Savannah or coming-of-age stories in general.

    I should also mention again that I love Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, but in a different context, because she was also a writer.
