Monday pick-me-ups

Ullage” is the saddest word in the English language. It’s the unfilled space in a new bottle of wine.

Claim is there’s a new pizza that is probiotic. That’s right, healthy pizza rather than a “donut with tomato sauce” says one of the founders of Naked Pizza, a Louisiana company which is expanding into Texas. The secret is in the crust (isn’t it always?) made of 12 whole grains, low-fat skim mozzarella and a tomato sauce with no weird chemicals. A handful of reviews on Yelp mention “tastes good.”

Six of the top medical journals published a lot of articles that were written by ghostwriters on drug company payrolls. Shocked. I’m shocked.

We need to make cars that run on milkweed. That’s the only fuel the Monarch butterflies use on their 2,000 mile migration from Minnesota to Mexico. Varoom.

In Siberia, mosquitoes are so bad that some native tribes carry their own personal smoke pots everywhere. Some native people retreat into smoke-filled huts and go near-dormant for the summer months.

To hell with the cars, Geo. I want a quart of that milkweed to mix with my daily dose of Diet Dr. Pepper at 10, 2, and 4!
