Winter food

What is it about winter that forces very strong desires for specific kinds of food?

There's something about snow on the ground, a bitter bite in the air, darkness, the smell of woodsmoke and wet bark that makes me crave food from my childhood. And not necessarily food that I LIKED in my childhood. (What's that about?)

I just stopped reading an editorial provocatively entitled, "You will lose your private health insurance." ( I thought it might help clarify what precisely is being debated in the House and Senate these days on health care.

But I stopped when I hit this line, "Of course the left will accept restrictions on funding for abortion, because they want to keep moderate Democrats on board for the goal they know is really important: giving the government a dominant role in health care."
