Two points of order today. First, in light of the "Bacon Explosion" discussion on our podcast, I think it's worth pointing out this dude's little dietary experiment. Now, I like bacon well enough--perhaps too well. But yikes, wow. I wonder if he'll make it without getting sick of the stuff. Surely there will be coverage on the TR of the bacon world, Bacon Today.
Second, I'm a day late, but an old friend of mine from high school blogs about advertising, and he has a nice post up going over the various Superbowl ads and offering his grades. The post is complete with videos of the ads, in case you missed any worth seeing. Always interesting to get an insider's take.
