OK, I understand food vs. chemo conflicts (4 1/2 YEARS of chemo), but unless
they changed her chemo the day before the feast, to my way of thinking that
is just plain RUDE.

In Bright Hills, we send out notices for events with the warning that if you
wait til the day of the feast to contact the cook, there will be NOTHING we
can/will do for you.

It's awfully funny (funny peculiar not funny ha-ha) that in a society that
spouts so much reverence for courtesy, so little is sometimes shown to
people cooking for your (generic) enjoyment.

Eating feast is NOT a right.  Life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and
equal treatment under the law - those are (or should be) rights.
