It's Take Out The Trash Day

Elizabeth Edward's ashes probably haven't even settled in the bottom of her urn yet ... when
I read in today's Drudge Report that John Edwards and Rielle Hunter have announced their engagement.

Call me old-fashioned, but since when does a man "get engaged" to his longstanding mistress? Of such duration that the couple's three year old daughter could be their flower girl?

To the curb with both of them!

Sometimes Less Really Is Less

Consumer Reports has an article in their February issue about downsizing. Not people or jobs, but products we all buy at the supermarket.

Some examples - Tropicana orange juice down from 64 fl oz to 59. Reason? Tropicana research reported that "people preferred to keep the same price and get less juice to keep within their budgets." Yeah, sure!

Kraft American cheese went from 24 slices to only 22 so the buyer just lost a sandwich. Haagen-Dazs ice cream - down 2 oz. from 16 to 14 oz.

Of note: none of the companies profiled announced these losses. Consumer Reports readers noticed them.
