Salt in coffee? Anybody do this?

I was flipping through the boards yesterday and came across a posting where someone mentioned it - maybe one of the "Weird things your family does" threads. Then coincidentally last night there was a Good Eats episode about using salt with desserts to make them taste better. As AB always does he explains the scientific reasoning and low and behold, to me at least, salt reacts with your tongue to eliminate or greatly reduces the ability of your tongue to "taste" bitterness.

So this morning I add a pinch to my coffee and sure enough it is nice & smooth.
