I wish to answer your question, “Will (Obama’s) palate inspire change, too?” (2/3, FYI). Recently, I read that President Obama was wining and dining White House guests with wagyu steaks. Being unsophisticated, I had to investigate what a wagyu steak is. Then I went on to price them, just in case they would inspire my palate.
At the price of $125 per pound, I will never be able to afford wagyu steaks. These steaks are not in my budget. Rather, I will have to be satisfied with hamburger.
