Comments on: Gumbo conversation and contention, for your attention Thu, 17 Mar 2011 17:16:10 +0000 hourly 1 By: askesis Thu, 17 Mar 2011 17:16:10 +0000 I am all in favor of bonding our collective histories. And there’s no better way to do this than over a good dinner. Food is where a culture expresses its points of contact with nature. And when we share food, when we cook together and sit down together, we can talk. Collective history is where we’re headed, but gumbo is how we get there.
