Da French Dip sandwich!
Forsyth MO – I’m a very big fan of a roast beef styled sandwich known as the French Dip. But, here’s an interesting factoid – it’s not from France at all! It was actually invented in Los Angeles! Who exactly invented the sandwich is still a matter of some contention. (Two local institutions—Cole’s and Philippe’s) both claim to have first created the crusty, beefy sandwich, served with its own jus for dipping. Well, whatever the origin, I often indulge in this luncheon delight as often as my waistline will permit!
Speaking of dips!
Over on the other side of the globe, an interesting trial of wills is going on. I’m speaking of the contest of nerves that’s been generated between Kim Jon il and our President Trump! As I was writing this, we have the USS Carl Vinson strike group steaming towards the Korean Peninsula and perhaps a date with destiny. Sadly, it seems that Kim has not figured out that there has been a change of the guard here in America. He continues to openly threaten the safety of our troops stationed in South Korea and has made threats that he will initiate of thermonuclear war should we not kowtow to his demands. Like a kindly giant facing a raging ant, I’m hoping we don’t accidentally step on him and his sick regime.
And more dips…
In America, there exists a group of millions and millions of hard working, God fearing and loving people. Men and women who believe in capitalism, the family unit and practicing good will towards all men. Sadly, there is another group that doesn’t exactly follow those tenets. Their mindset is one of gross entitlement, political correctness and the hope that America will be ‘put in its place’. Some call these individuals the Far Left, Democrats, Liberals and Socialists. I call them oddballs, dimwitted and Godless pieces of.. well you know what!
