Congrats Delta, MSP Airport. and OTG . . . America’s Best & Worst Airports report from Travel + Leisure says MSP is Best Airport. I think it’s because of my sandwich menu at MinnBar on the G Concourse, next to Gates 1-4. Go for it and tell me I’m wrong.
Check out Cartoon Network tonight at 8e/7c and catch the premiere of my pal Danny Boyle’s new series Incredible Crew. Danny directed those awesome HealthPartners’s TV spots that air locally, and he and I are cooking up some cool projects in the kid space together as well.
Bad news for Yelp! Now the big guns are out on a federal level, I have come to believe after a year of being open-minded about Yelp! that with so many people I trust being harassed by them, and bullied, that there has to be a fire where there is smoke.
Thanks to Lori and Julia and the whole MyTalk FM 107.1 team, but most importantly to you all for supporting me in the big Manuary promotion . . . I came from behind in Round One to squeak out a win over Channel 5 weather guru Dave Dahl. I needed that one. Then I came up against the young Minnesota Wild phenom Zach Parise and got my clock cleaned as expected. No shame there, I put $20 on him to win the whole thing the night the brackets came out. After seeing Jason DeRusha on our newsstand cover this month, I regret not backing him all the way, he has nicer calves than expected.
Food fraud rising? Yes. Lots of time spent on this blog advocating for better truth in labeling practices. Check out Kat Kinsman video and article here and rest assured, it’s worse than you think. Imagine how much goes unreported! And check out Marion Nestle and this ridiculous assertion from Coke—isn’t that a form of fraud? Coca-Cola fighting obesity? C’mon now! I continue to believe that having soda machines in schools is no different than selling them booze, dope, or anything else PROVEN to be unhealthy, mind-altering, and deleterious to their learning and well-being.
Check out Michael Fertik’s 2013 tech predictions here, and while none are food-related per se, think of the social commerce collapse predictions and the meta search engine implications for your favorite food sites! Smart guy BTW, who is right most of the time.
