Comment on a National Tragedy
If you've been paying attention to the news lately, you know as well as I do the horrible tragedy
that just took place in the United States.
In light of this devastating occurence I'm going to break the mold of my normally light-hearted
happy pizza commentary and address this situation that has affected us all. Here is the latest:
Truck accident covers Chicago Skyway with mozzarella
April 22, 2007 - The eastbound lanes of the Chicago Skyway were closed near the toll plaza Sunday morning because of a truck accident which has spilled a large quantity of cheese across the roadway.
Police say the accident split open the trailer of a semi hauling mozzarella and caused the cheese to spill out across the pavement. No one was reported injured in the crash, but emergency workers had to close off the lanes to clean up the mozzarella.
Yes, this is truly a sad situation for the pizza-loving citizens of Chicago. People might even have to resort to using
salty mozzarella substitutes for their pizza such as havarti or heaven forbid (gasp!) soy cheese. It's a grim situation.
I just hope this tragedy will bring people together instead of drive them apart.

Stale, but still cheesy!
