Food Fight

The Good News: If you're in New Orleans on November 22, you can watch a mock battle between Jared the Subway guy and the inventor of the po' boy sandwich (both are reenactors as the po' boy inventor is dead and Jared is probably not allowed to participate in anti-fast food stage combat). The Bad News: The fact that such an event exists bodes poorly for the future of po' boy itself. The sandwich, which owes its name and origins to 1929 labor disputes, is losing ground to fast-food chains, a still under-populated city and cost-cutting measures. From The New York Times.
