I could not disagree more with Carmen Ebert in regards to the pasties from Anaconda being better than any from Butte (see “Street Talk,” Nov. 15). This could be true, but as a “true blue Butte rat,” I have eaten pasties consistently for over a half century.
There is no accounting for people’s tastes, but I’d like to propose a small bet with Carmen. Please go to Lisa’s Pasty Pantry in Missoula. Eat it there or take it home. If she can honestly say that a pasty from Anaconda is better, I will buy it. Lisa is originally from Butte and an expert in the art of making the “Letter from ’ome.”
I strongly feel that Carmen will have to bring money to pay for the pasty herself.
