Wynton Marsalis and Poppy Tooker: An Ode to Gumbo

Lead in text: 
There is a big difference between gumbo and just any old soup. Gumbo is a full meal. It's a tradition and a philosophy. The fundamentals don't change, but the variations are endless. Our own Poppy Tooker went on CBS Sunday Morning to show Wynton Marsalis how it's done.
(CBS News) On New Orleans' Super Bowl Sunday, Wynton Marsalis brings us an essay about his home town's signature dish, as much a cultural symbol of New Orleans as the bayou or jazz: New Orleans, the Crescent City. It remains a fascinating place because of the diversity of its culture.

One of the Twitter hashtags devised by rabid Beyonce fans before last night's Super Bowl halftime show was religious in nature: #praisebeysus. Praise Beysus! This bit of hyperventilating resonated in interesting ways. Strutting into the very center of America's biggest television spectacle, the 31-year-old superstar intended to secure her place in the musical pantheon next to recent Super Bowl-approved legends Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen and Prince.

Great blackout last night, right?

That's why there's such hubbub over the halftime show and the commercials — it gives non-football types something to pay attention to instead of football.
