That's right. The Green Zebra was ahead of its time.

I've got a chapter on this very subject in Wine and Philosophy.

Absolutely NOT. Re-read the first sentences of my msg. That fact that your belly says "I'm happy" doesn't in the slightest imply that "The food must be good." The only thing(s) that would imply that the food is good is a characterization of the food, plus a list of the criteria of goodness, and the claim that the characterization satisfies the criteria.
