  1. Lew Powell, you are a genius! Why have I never thought of making pimento cheese the state cheese? Time to take up our placards and petitions, folks.

  2. I’m afraid I’m going to have to side with the good folks of Ashe County on this one. If anything should be the North Carolina state cheese, it should be good old-fashioned hoop chese.

  3. A schism within the cheese community, however deep, shouldnt be a deal breaker. This is after all a state with an official Blue Berry and an official Red Berry. … One possibility: Pimiento Cheese Made with Ashe County Hoop Cheese….

  4. Lew, I nominate you for special envoy status to begin the next round of peace talks in the Middle East.
