Southern-fried-comfort food for the soul

I've been in a serious reading dry spell recently; I've read nothing but LOTR (slowly) since 2002. Hearing the Sweet Potato Queen on NPR tonight, however, has inspired me to pick up one of her books. Listening to an except of one of her public appearances had me cackling, alternating with big belly laughs. Hearing her interview, I recognized one of those people who just gets it, and make you happy that you're both in the human race.

Update: While searching for links for this blog, I just heard a brilliant "I do not have Anthrax, said Sadam" parody of "Green Eggs and Ham." I don't think I've said this enough recently: I LOVE NPR!
