Letter: Beem misses dip, also misses the point
Clam dip sounds about as appealing to me as lobster roe in toasted marshmallows. While I grieve Edgar Allen Beem’s loss of access to his favorite brand ("The Universal Notebook: Heluva good excuse to be a conservative"), a conservative would notice that people lost their livelihoods in the bargain. Beem is clearly no conservative. Why is it that “Me”-oriented progressives only seem to take notice when their own narrow self-interests are impaired?
