Want Hush Puppies’ History? Just Choose A Version You Like
By ART CHAPMAN Fort Worth Star Telegram, April 9, 1998
Reading a newspaper article about hush puppies not long ago, I realized something very important. I don’t like hush puppies. I’m not sure just why I don’t like them. I enjoy cornbread of almost every style. Heaven knows I love catfish, and the rule is you must have hush puppies when you have catfish. By the way, you might also like to know you’re supposed to have ketchup with your catfish, too. They?re calling in a friend from Texas Hold ’em BBQ to man the barbecue pit. If you?re looking for New Orleans Saints headquarters in South Florida,
look no further than Shuck ‘N Dive Cajun Cafe on Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. It?s where alumni from Louisiana State University meet to watch football. It’s where etouffe and oysters are always on the menu.
STORY AND PHOTOS BY THOMAS SWICK, Travel Editor, May 10, 1992
Drive! Put your foot to the gas and go! Leave the urban sprawl behind and head out into the strange northwest of Florida, that is,
where shucked oyster shells litter the ground instead of empty crack vials. That little known land that seems too drawly to be the Sunshine State and yet too watery to be the South. (And resembles more the barrel of a pistol than the handle of a pan.) Drive! Along the two lane roads skirting forests of pine and the infrequent house not much bigger than the motorboat parked beside it. Past the Boiled P Nut vendors and the American made pickup trucks and the signs pointing the way to “Rabbits and Cane Juice.”Doc Does Some Sole Searching
By Hank Stuever The Washington Post, July 27, 2002
Late last week, a thoroughly British icon of all that’s punk and oddly comforting sent up a flare indicating a spot of trouble. Sales are way off for Dr Martens footwear the giant soled combat boot and assorted shoes that came to mean so much to the kind of people who wished not to be entirely understood. The fashionably rebellious have, of course, moved on from the combat boot seen in the mosh pits of yore. Hard core punks,
skinheads and Goth kids are still bitter about the decade long sellout of their beloved Docs, to the point where the shoe became widely seen on The Man (who bought them at Macy’s and wore them to work, in a bloody cubicle.
Where To Find Go go Boots
ROD STAFFORD HAGWOOD, January 12, 1997
Saks Fifth Avenue stocks DKNY’s zip front low boots in black or white rubber ($85). Hush Puppies has black or brown suede midcalf boots ($130). Bloomingdale’s has Stuart Weitzman’s short, black leather tipped suede boots ($205). Bally’s quilted leather ankle boots ($395) and Bottega Veneta’s shearling lace ups ($340). Cacique/Galleria Mall has black boots that come below the knee in leather or suede ($72 139). Edwards Is A Standout Investment Choice
Q. Edwards as it compares to Merrill, PaineWebber,
Prudential, Shearson and Dean Witter. Which would you own for a three year investment? A. Edwards (AGE $27) may be the best managed wire house on the Street, even if St. Louis is its home. Because Merrill (MER) and PaineWebber (PWJ) are the only large public wire houses reporting to Standard Poors, I cant compare Edwards to the others. But lets make the best of what we know. Edwards revenues since 1982 have increased 270 percent, vs. Since 1975, Donna Psaropoulos has been collecting jerseys, helmets,
photographs and portraits and whatever else is out there for dedicated Dol Fans to latch onto in an outpouring of loyalty. Psaropoulos does them one better.
