Wednesday notes

 Watching a news show, I learned that the Board of Trustees at UNC-Chapel Hill has decided to move the DEI funding to the campus police.  Wow. That is interesting.  It also sounds like a good idea. From what I've seen from the DEI movement, it is a divisive, repugnant idea that flies in the face of merit-based selection, whether in the public or private sector.  It advances race over accomplishment and is diametrically opposed to the goals of a color-blind society.

In other notes, a commenter recently asked which brand of hot dog I prefer.  If I'm forced to buy a hot dog, I generally buy Ball Park or Nathans.  What I'm more likely to do is buy a selection of good smoked sausage, or bratwurst, or both, and serve them on a bun.

Sausage is a regional thing, but there is no reason to limit ourselves to a particular regional sausage.  A good kielbasa, or andouille will fit nicely on the smoker beside a bratwurst or Hillshire Farms.  If there is one place where diversity is always well appreciated, it is on the sausage grate in the smoker.  Embrace inclusion.

MaBell sausage from McComb, MS, is a very good sausage. They have both patty and smoked link sausage.
