    White Wine.
    If you notice something good in yourself, give credit to God, not to yourself, but be certain the evil you commit is always your own and yours to acknowledge.

    I picked what ever the hell you want. In my family we have some Coors with a fried catfish dinner.Sometimes it maybe just an iced tea or soda.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Depends. If it is with your spouse or date chances are white wine. If it is with the boys a beer. If it is with the family and kids go with sodas.

    It depends on preparation. Tilapia with butter garlic sauce would go with white wine, as noted by Morality Games. You also wouldn't go wrong with mead.

    If it's breaded, beer would be better like jamesrage suggests. Beer is also better with spicier dishes, like if you'd broiled the tilapia with hot sauce.

    Tilapia's a very lightly flavored fish, so you want to go with lighter beverages in general. Strong liquors and robust flavors are going to overwhelm it.

    Soda's going to obliterate anything you drink it with. I love drinking soda, but it just doesn't work when you care about the flavor of the food.

    Milk would be good, but not with lemon. Even if there isn't enough lemon to cause curdling, the flavors don't work together.

    a pinot grigio

    If appropriate for your guests. Italian pinot grigios tend to be more "demure" by themselves but come into their own with food. Californian/New World PGs tend to be more "showy" and may or may not improve a meal such as you have suggested.
    I may be wrong.

    In Nova Scotia... a ceasar

    What is a ceasar you ask? Well I'll tell you.

    A Caesar or Bloody Caesar is a cocktail created and primarily consumed in Canada. It typically contains vodka, Clamato (a proprietary blend of tomato juice and clam broth), hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, and is served with ice in a large, celery salt-rimmed glass, typically garnished with a stalk of celery and wedge of lime.

    It was invented in Calgary, Alberta in 1969 by restauranteur Walter Chell to celebrate the opening of a new Italian restaurant in the city. It quickly became a popular mixed drink, but remains virtually unknown outside Canada. It is claimed that over 350 million Caesars are consumed in Canada annually, and it has inspired numerous variants.
    It's simply... awesome!

    I have never been to a swamp and fried catfish is very popular in Oklahoma.

    ...how fiendish of you to bring back rare delicious memories.

    I would say a red wine. Or, perhaps a Chardonnay or Chianti?

    Would you say a small serving of organic baby spinach leaves would be a seemingly decent addition?
