I forget who the author was. The article was a useful eye-opener for a new sojourner in Deep Dixie. By the way, I was heating up some leftovers in the microwave last night at my mother-in-law's, and I noticed that the Look Out Moon Pies box had a serving suggestion: place a Moon Pie in the microwave for a few seconds and eat it warm. It suddenly occurred to me that a s'more was a campfire version of the classic moon pie.
