#531 - more Superbowl dinosaurs

If the frail, elderly Bobby Zimmerman in Chrysler's "Nostalgia" ad wasn't scary enough, another Superbowl 'highlight' was the half-time Seinfeld "Reunion": Jerry, George & Newman The temperature remains below freezing, so yesterday's snow and rain hardened into pack ice, is very hazardous, and requires serious tools to remove it. May be dynamite will be next.
Finally, one for Bill Porter: Subway confirmed on Thursday that they were removing a chemical used to make yoga mats and rubber soles on shoes from their sandwich bread. “We are already in the process of removing azodicarbonamide as part of our bread improvement efforts despite the fact that it is a USDA and FDA approved ingredient,” Subway told CBS News via e-mail. “The complete conversion to have this product out of the bread will be done soon.” The fact that azodicarbonamide was used as an ingredient in U.S. and Canadian Subway products was brought to light by blogger Vani Hari. Hari claims the chemical can be found in 9-grain wheat, Italian white, honey oat, Italian herbs & cheese, parmesan/oregano, roasted garlic, sourdough and Monterrey cheddar breads. She launched a petition asking the sandwich chain to remove azodicarbonamide from their menu items, pointing out that Australia and Europe have banned the chemical over health concerns. Subway does not use azodicarbonamide in their bread recipes in those countries.
