Fish sauce is good. So is soy sauce. It's the implication-through- 
action that plain white rice automatically requires either, especially  
when there's almost always a highly-flavored accompaniment served with  
it anyway, that I have issue with.

I guess to me, it's as if you had a delicate quenelle made from  
fillets of freshly-caught pike, poured a cup of Bulls-eye Barbecue  
sauce all over it, offered a bite to someone, and asked them what they  
taste. They respond, "Tastes like barbecue sauce to me." You respond,  
"See? I _told_ you quenelles of pike have no flavor!"

Uh, yeah... but from what I've heard, it's probably just the truth.
