Heads Up Donut Fans and Foes

Next Sunday, August 31, we will try something different on our blog. The author of a new book on the history of the donut has agreed to be at his computer from 8:00 a.m. ET to 2:00 p.m. ET, ready to respond to your questions and comments right here on Soapbox. His name is Paul Mullins, and he is the author of "Glazed America: A History of the Doughnut." Mullins is an anthropologist at Indiana University - Purdue University, Indianapolis. Mullins says, the donut is the symbol of consumer culture. What do you think? Share your donut story or question today and come back next week to see Paul's response.
