The more-than-hungry among us

| September 09, 2008

Talk about some hot pie: The Associated Press reported Sunday on the arrest of a truck driver, Anthony Herbert Lee, of Hammond, Ind., not far from his home after Lee reportedly ran into mechanical trouble and tried to offload a reefer full of frozen pizzas on a cargo-salvaging company, for cash. The pizzas, of course, didn’t belong to him — he was running under contract to a Chicago pizza company, itself a subsidiary of Nestle.
