If anyone wants to or can help out the workers jacked up by the fire (still kind of burning for a third day) at the Patrick Cudahy plant, the UFCW is taking money and food items. It also sounds like it wouldn't be the worst thing to drive down and eat lunch in Cudahy this week.
Also of grave concern:
[Fire Chief Dan] Mayer said fire damaged primarily a microwave area where the company prepares bacon.The Great Bacon Shortage of 09 is just about to start, I can feel it. It will be a long, healthy summer.
