A Post About The Post!

John Kelly, of the Washington Post, is my new best friend. You bet he is, after the piece he penned. And the 'haters' among you are going to love him too. For his first hysterically funny take on Marmite was followed by a sizzling 'mea culpa'. Then to top it all the Post ran - among all the serious issues of the day - a letter about the eruption of the Marmite War.  Here is an extract from the first column ... Marmite, an English condiment that is perhaps the foulest compound legally sold for human consumption...I took a bite and immediately felt as if I'd been hit in the face by an ocean wave, a wave befouled by oil from a sinking tanker, oil that had caused a die-off of marine birds and invertebrates, creatures whose decomposing bodies were adding to the general funkiness of the wave that had found its way inside my mouth....Talk about a Marmite-novice getting it! John was introduced to the black-goo when he came to the Capitol Hill launch. And he kindly gave Marvelous Market (see previous post) a good mention.
