"torch" news and stories
Ben and Jerry's is sending a caravan to that city to intercept the torch. The move is intended to bring attention to China's involvement in Sudan. The hope is that the three vehicle convoy, which each carry a replica of the Olympic torch and sport mobile billboards, will put a spotlight back on the troubled Darfur region.
The torch is scheduled to be in San Francisco on April 9th. The arrival of Ben and Jerry's caravan is slated to be the same date. The vehicles will make stops at college campus' and Ben and Jerry's stores along the way. Wow! What do you think about this one?
As some of you may recall, back when Sarah Gim profiled me, I said that Peeps should be banned from the planet. Surprisingly, there wasn't too much backlash from that. My views aside, there seems to be plenty of affection for these marshmallow creatures around here. Not that I ever condone eating Peeps, but if you must, then I think perhaps the best way is to make some sort of spectacle out of it, such as warming them up a tad with a kitchen torch. That's what Colleen Cuisine did.
