Grits as Art?

A man in South Carolina has taken grits from the breakfast table to the artist's studio -- he's painting them! “I found a way to feed my kids and create my artwork out of the same pot,” he announced. Now that's some high-caliber southern ingenuity.

Not long ago I was on the phone with a young Yankee gal who was looking for information on Texas' criminal justice system, and I referred her to this blog. "Grits?" she said. "What are grits?"

"Think of them as redneck polenta," I replied.
