ATTENTION: This subject matter makes sense only to Twitter followers.
Welcome Ruth Sietsema. Given that there was no formal birth announcement on Saturday, I'll offer one here, since I am clearly the godmother of this newbie and was present almost from the start, give or take a couple of hours, while awaiting a flight out of Charleston, SC, the city of conception.
I am pleased to announce the birth of Ruth Sietsema, the parody born of a Twitter parody, half sibling of Ruth Bourdain (or as noted on Twitter, “sister from another mister"). She/he/it is officially part of the food world, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health (oops, wrong sacrament).
It was a difficult birth, born of controversy and the volatile mix of linear thinking and lack of humor, a dangerous combo if ever there was one.
