A call to arms

So the big news in yesterday's Express-News - and I mean, front-page, top of the fold, accompanied by photo and screaming headline - was that the Cowboy Breakfast which traditionally kicks off San Antonio's rodeo has opted to cut out the gravy this year. Done as a logistical matter, since the breakfast was served in a buffet format and participants were forced to mill around with food in one hand and coffee in the other, it nonetheless has created a chasm between those who cling to the old ways and those ready to face the future.

Of course, what chaps many is that the VIPs still get their gravy. If this isn't a prelude to class warfare, I don't know what is.
