    This reminds me of the editorial policy of Oklahoma City's newspaper, "The Oklahoman" regarding letters to the editor. They say they won't publish letters that blame an entire group for the misdeeds of the few. Now, "The Oklahoman" breaks that policy, which is too bad, because it's a great idea. This ad suggests someone at the Underground forgot Britian has become a far more pluralistic society. It was most unfortunate. As for the yummy stuff in the photo, they can send it all to SF for me. I'm in St. Louis now, however, so I can find all that here!

        Reminds me of a couple of controversial work place policies I have encountered. The first one was no eating at your desk. This was enacted after someone consumed a fish dish for lunch and the odor seeped into all 6 floors of the building. The second one was at a doctors office where we were no longer allowed to microwave popcorn because the patients complained it caused them to get too hungry while waiting to see a physician. I only wished my present employer would ban eating at desks sometimes the smell can become overwhelming at mid-day.

          We here are allowed to eat anywhere we please and that includes our desks. I'm the first one heating food in the a.m. usually around 9:30a or 10. It could be anything from spaghetti to bar-b-qued chicken who knows(if it involves broccoli I try to wait a little longer). Fortunatly in 14 years I have had no complaints, well not to my knowledge. Usually it just starts the rest of the floor heading in the direction of a microwave. I know that's kind of early for lunch but I'd rather eat at that time spend my lunch hour doing something else and I don't get sleepy in the afternoon.

            Nice to see that "political correctness" is not just an American problem. Are we getting just a little too sensative or what?
