      I also agree… And BETTER RESEARCH! Sweet n’ Low didn’t exist when Catcher In The Rye was written.

      You call it awful lighting, I call it realistic lighting. People in novels didn’t carry light sets and reflectors about with them while they ate these meals. Also, I’ve always been a fan of shadows. The only ones that seem to interfere with the image itself is the last meal (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) since they make it look too busy.
