I talked to John again this morning and we discussed all the hubbub relating to him in our local blogosphere. He seems to be getting quite a kick out of it. He was particularly amused by talk of him anointing himself a James Beard nominee. Anyway – he wanted to pass along that he has yet to make a blog comment on any site (neither as himself, nor under a pseudonym) regarding his departure from The Mansion or any future plans. And, he again reiterated that he has nothing bad to say about Rosewood or The Mansion.
