The no-fry zone:
Warning to Southern delegates to the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver this August: it will be a no-fry zone.
As part of the effort to make the August 25-28 convention the greenest ever, the Democrats' guidelines for food catering include one that strikes at the heart of Southern cuisine: no fried food.
Attendees will be served "red, green, yellow, purple/blue and white" food.
"It's the new patriotism," says Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, the driving force behind the greening of the Democratic convention.
Maybe Southern delegates can at least get some grits. They are white. Salt is white and butter is yellow.
That's just two colors though. The Mayor says you must be served three
colors at each meal. Anyone know where you can buy blue pepper?
