White Wine + Red Meat @ Super IGA

Do you mix your wines and meats? Say a bottle of white wine with a steak or hamburger?

That seems to be the suggestion of the Super IGA market an 1800 Columbia Road with their two in one deli refrigerator.

I do not know about you, but their efforts failed with me. After seeing this display, I was not in the mood for either.

Which begs the question: Have you seen other economical yet unappetitizing retail fridge combos around town?

    Nitpick: It doesn’t “beg” the question, it *raises* it. :)

    `When _I_ use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, `it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.’

    `The question is,’ said Alice, `whether you CAN make words mean so many different things.’

    `The question is,’ said Humpty Dumpty, `which is to be master – – that’s all.’

    Or, I would say, whether the people desperately trying to hold on to the classic meaning of “beg the question” can continue to insist on the classic meaning when it is probably now used the the way Wayan did 9 times out of 10.
