A grainy issue of the Times

I wonder if Jane Brody feels threatened. Marian Burros has not one but two articles in the NYT online advocating the consumption of whole grains, one of Brody's favorite subjects.

I wonder if the two are friends, if they discuss matters of the day over bowls of oatmeal, or if they are both vying for some sort of Head Grains Editor position and therefore fiercely competitive with each other.

I have heard that Brody has the huskier voice.

I wonder how Brody feels about Burros's assertion that low-carb dieting has made whole grains popular, especially with her "screw low carb" outlook.

Mmm... schadenfreude... low-fat and low-carb.

Low-fat and low carb...add low-protein, and all you've got is the exact opposite of what Edina from "Absolutely Fabulous" follows: "a sort of eating a lot sort of diet."
