I’m referring to the question that was first
published in May of 1997, about whether rice
shouldn’t be thrown at weddings because
birds exploded when they ate it. Cecil
seems to think that’s hogwash, and I agree.
I remember from my sister’s first wedding
that we threw birdseed instead of rice
because the church didn’t want to waste the
rice when so many people in the world are
hungry. That may seem a bit bleeding-heart
to many, but that was the church’s policy.
I can supply the name of the church if
anyone wants to verify this.
