A Delectable Tidbit of News

In one of those news items that always seems to catch my eye, it seems that Atkins Nutritionals, the company that pushed and promoted the diet craze that pushed the profit margin on my remaining beef cattle from "laughable" to "reasonable" and into "Holy smokes!", filed for bankruptcy.

Some blame its demise on cholesterol and fat, some on lack of fruits and veggies, but I think the reason is much less complex than that. While I love a thick steak as much as the next guy and have been known to bow down and worship brunch tables that feature unlimited bacon, no diet that denies me the pleasures of Noe Valley Bakery bread is going to last more than fifteen minutes in MY household.
