Subject: Re: "white coffee"

coffee black. After six weeks in NYC in 1986, I came home
addicted to half and half. It took me weeks to get back to "normal."
When I first penetrated that part of the country I was asked whether I
wanted my coffee "regular." "Yes," I responded, imagining a nice cup of
black coffee. It came with milk, of course, and the serverpersonmensch
insisted that was indeed "regular."
