Different backgrounds, different cultures, Common tastes?

In society, people who are class conscious have a tendency to have much in common with their friends. If you were at a party and they were serving cream cheese in a seafood clam sauce with Pepperidge Farm butterfly crackers, you would quite possibly be a member of the junior league in Hyde Park or, better yet, South Tampa.

Still, my thinking is there are many foods that we all enjoy, like pizza and hamburgers, that fill an instinctive universal craving that regardless of your background, you love to eat.

I could say that comfort food from any country is classless.

Anyway New Doc says to me yesterday, at my height, I should weigh 100 lbs less. He told me how smart he is, and justifiable so. Still, he weighed about 130. My take, do not visit skinny doctors.
