Curses, I missed National Pie Day on January 23! Despite my earlier pie-related cris de coeur I received no notice from the American Pie Council regarding this soul-feeding and essentially American event. Just as I feared, the uniquely American pie tradition is fading in the quest for mere skin and bone... Think I'll become a member and get a free subscription to Pie Times, along with the other special benefits...

Betcha can't read these names and not drool...

When I read these names I feel like Pepe LeMoko reciting the names of the stations on the Paris metro...

[Later: Membership involves printing out the form, filling it out and snailmailing it in together with a check for 35 bucks!! Guess they don't need members so badly after all.]
