FHB: Give Me Taste, Not Gluten Fee

On her Facebook wall, Frum Helen Back writes: "Sometimes I feel like I've lived too long. Today was one of those days. There were no Lacey's at Costco. Lacey's are probably the most sinful cookie ever. They are so deliciously filled with calories. There were no Lacey's but plenty of seaweed squares. Those wouldn't taste good even if they were covered with chocolate. And there were more than enough items that were organic and gluten free. I figure if gluten is bad I would have been dead a long time ago. Maybe it's bad to not have gluten. I have no idea what it is. Then I found a big display of bread made with ancient grains. At that point I decided that Costco is not a good place for me to shop. I had the urge to ask other shoppers if they ate this crap because they thought it would let them live forever. Instead I decided to go home and eat real food that's unhealthy. Besides, I have no desire to live forever.

Question: Any gluten free advocates out there?
