You want grits with that? Is it possible to think about the South without thinking about grits? Here we discuss all things southern. Current events, your “raisin,” how it’s changed, or whatever else is on your mind. Don’t be surprised if one of “the girls” or “the ducks,” ( a name we international friends call ourselves for some reason) drop in to ruffle my feathers. They love to mention sugar and grits in the same sentence just to have me cringe.
