A great food personality has died R.I.P.

Let's be grateful for slow news days, guys. If you remember back to early September 2001, the big story (before the REALLY BIG STORY) was beaches being cleared due to shark sightings. I'll take fluffy, lighthearted news any day of the week over what happened later that month. And, for the record, the same boss with the plush toy safely escaped from the WTC that day, as did someone very close to me...so, please, let's be VERY thankful indeed for slow news days.

And now we get to see if the hound gets a mention at the TV awards shows along with the dead of TV land.
(That's when the controversy will start if Morris the cat didn't get a mention.)
