MOLDY WEINER 

MOLDY WEINER

On Friday, March 5th, The Commercial Appeal scooped every other media outlet in town when it ran a tragic story about a doomed hot-dog truck in Des Moines, Iowa. There was a giant weenie roast on Interstate 380, the story began, but there was no mustard for many a mile marker. A truck carrying more than 20 tons of Oscar Mayer turkey franks caught fire and the intoxicating aroma of roasting hot dogs mixed with the acrid smell of burning rubber, turning the otherwise peaceful Iowa landscape into a perfect vision of hell. What the CA failed to mention was that this horrible event took place four months ago in November 2003. Of course, if you haven t read it yet, it s still old news -- all the way from Des Moines.
