The fact that I care enough to create this thread is disturbing to me—it's not like I have nothing better to do. That said: js this week's topic a rerun from a year ago? It seems to be. I feel as though Helena's running out of ideas; they're all essentially the same four topics: what to do about drunks? what to do about babies? what to do about vegetarians? and what to do about busybodies?
I get a kick out of the comments Helena's columns elicit, but I'm getting bored with the same old topics. I realize there's probably only so many angles a dining etiquette column can take, but still: can we help her out with some fresh ideas? Anyone?
Has a column ever been done about someone who hogs the buffet table at a party? There's one that bugs me.
