It’s official (as if there was ever any doubt) August 10, 2007

It’s official. The South as a whole sucks.

There’s no other way to look at it. There is a blight that covers this place. Mississippi seems to be in the center and it extends out to Houston, Texas to the west, to Orlando, Florida to the south, Knoxville, Tennessee, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Kansas City, KS to the north. There is a small resistance in the New Orleans, Louisiana, but we don’t expect them to make any headway.

“What’s happened now?” you ask. I’m glad you’ve asked.

There are no Indian groceries. It’s like a bomb went off in the center of Mississippi that only obliterated Indian food. There are no Indian restaurants in the Biloxi are (big surprise). There is no where to buy Indian food in the South (except for one store in New Orleans). That’s a 2 hour drive at least. Dallas has half a dozen. The Houston area has a dozen. The southern tip of Florida has a dozen.

But those towns are very big, you say. Okay, well, then this little community of Biloxi, Ocean Springs, Gulfport, etc, etc, should be able to have ONE Indian grocery. Aw hell, I’d settle for some frickin’ ingredients in the spice aisle at the grocery store.

But do you know why there aren’t Indian spices in the spice aisle of a Southern grocery store? Because the people who choose to live here are stupid.

And my daughter is clamouring for me to play play-doh with her and I should go.


I am going to hit up a friend and/or family member and make them pick up some stuff for me and mail it to me. I am desperate.

    Well it’s true! Minorities and ethnic groups in general tend to flock to big cities and not small towns. Therefore, small towns will have nothing. It is one advantage to living in the stinking crime-ridden city. Let me know if you want me to do any shopping for you. Off the top of my head I already know of one Indian grocery store.
