Covington, LA, although this is probably not THE Waffle House. This one is down the street from the Courtyard by Marriott. Still, a suitable location for our Gulf region HQ.

    Cuz we know about THE Waffle House.

    But still – deets?

      No, never smothered. Cannot abide onions in the morning. Covered, chunked, diced, capped.

        No onions? But a day without a Denver omelet is like a day without sunshine!

        AW — assuming the ‘AW’ in question isn’t Ai Weiwei or Alexander Waugh — has been, along with the Darwins, an important influence on me for about a decade now, since around the time I started taking the Faith seriously. It is not often that someone comes along who is a prolific Catholic blogger and a sane person. AW is both.

        Are you meeting for business, pleasure, some combination, or some other purpose? In any case, I hope you both have much fun and get some good things started and/or finished. Looking forward to your report.

    As I’ve said before, my email address (listed before under CHurchill) has been taken over.

    Somebody recently said to me that it was Jews against Catholics, but might they not be on the same side?

    • Might could be.

      Sorry to hear about your email.

    • Angelico Nguyen, Esq., OP says

      I am a Catholic who has had Jewish colleagues, mentors, and friendly acquaintances, but never enemies. Of course we disagree about some nontrivial matters, and agree about others — as is the case between Catholics and any non-Catholic individual or group, and as is indeed the case among Catholics ourselves. Conflict and alliance are both context-specific. I certainly don’t believe in any general antagonism; no anti-Dreyfusard I.

  4. The only thing missing is fried chicken and an adult beverage. Oh, and an ash tray.

    You people smoke in malls down there.

  5. By the way, am I the only one who calls the WH the ‘Awful House.” Having never actually eaten in one, I say it with the same jeu d’esprit as “Toxic Hell” for the Mexifastness and a local grocery store called the Village Market which I call the Village Idiot. No comment on the services.
