Poutine in the Boston Globe.

Thanks to tb, I have a followup to my earlier posting quoting the New York Times.

From http://www.boston.com/ae/food/articles/2007/07/18/baby_baby_stick_your_fries_in_gravy/:
Mouth-watering but off-putting. Perfect but excessive. Crispy but soggy. How can one dish have so many contradictions? Poutine, Quebec's most diabolically unhealthy culinary ambassador, is at once several opposite things. As this imposing pile of french fries, cheese curds, and gravy slowly makes its way down through North America, it leaves only enthusiasm in its gooey, fatty trail.
Guess I have some new local places to visit.
