Jim West is back in the thick – or thin – of things, now with a survey article of how the sausage-fest controversy spans the globe. And the untiring Deane Galbraith has come up with the t-shirt, beer coaster, cutting board, apron and much more – all with the sausage-fest logo. Tomorrow, the head honcho of SBL, John Kutsko weighs in, since he has owned up to asking Charlie Haws to send me the initial message. A case of the messenger copping the flack. And as yet I have not received word as to what the SBL will do with my paper title or indeed paper, so I can only assume that it will go ahead. Next: maybe a paper called ‘The Great Sausage-Fest Controversy: On Minced Meat and Censorship’ (ht to DG).
