Overnight Open Thread

Welcome to the Monday.

So How Has Our Diet Changed In The Last 100 Years?

Well for one thing we're eating less grains and a lot more chicken and cheese. Pork is holding its own. And apparently beef is what was for dinner back in 1976 when Americans ate close to their own weight in cow. And of course everything is now a lot cheaper and available 24/7.

Given the overly generous pension plans that public and private unions have wrung out of companies in the last few decades, I expect to see a lot more of this.
