October 15, 2012 - Take This Pie & Stuff It!

From Time Magazine: "Face-stuffing has been around for centuries, of course: the Edda, a collection of 13th-century Norse myths, tells of an eating contest between the god Loki and his servant (the servant won by eating the plate). But organized competitive eating-- consuming as much as you can, as fast as you can, within a given period of time -- is relatively new. According to Major League Eating, the sport's governing body (yes, there is one) the American version of the pastime began in 1916, the year that Nathan's Famous held its first Fourth of July hot dog-eating contest in Coney Island."

In the news: Roger was a busy beaver this weekend reporting a rash of accidents and bizarre behavior throughout the county. A report of smoke in the West Mountain Drive area sent fire engines racing; gladly, it was a false alarm. Read these stories and more, below.
