For a dissenting view of MSG, see Fuchsia Dunlop's interesting op-ed piece in today's NY Times:http://www.nytimes.com/2007/02/18/opi...
Hardly dissenting. She even points out the Steingarten article from 1999 - 8 years ago, (hello!). I guess she's just now getting around to reading Steingarten and This and so many others that talked about the umami receptor and debunked Chinese Restaurant Syndrome over a decade ago - oh well, it takes time for some to catch up... most slow folks don't do it so publicly.
