Riot Food

We've been hearing about the revolts in the Middle East and even out here in the good ol U.S.A. in the dairyland of Wisconsin. Although not as popular as the overturning of Hosni Mubarak and (possibly) Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi, the protesting in Madison, WI has been heard around the world as shown in this article:

Ian's Pizza sent their leftover pizzas to the protesters, and someone in California followed suit by phoning in and donating pizzas as well. God bless the Internets and the media, and word traveled via news outlets, Twitter, Facebook, and more. At this writing, except for 5, all states, and DC, have reached out to Ian's Pizza to have pizza delivered to the protesters. It went past our borders, and people from other countries, including Egypt, have also donated.

And speaking of the wonderful world of technology and coups, you gotta love how the father in Egypt who just had her daughter after ousting Mubarak and named her "Facebook." Imagine her relationships in the future... "complicated."

Okay back to your regularly scheduled programs...
