Fry Bread Named State Symbol of South Dakota; Low-Carb Diets Fading

Two interesting bread related stories in the news:

The South Dakota State State Affairs Committee approved a bill 8-1 that will list the American Indian staple Fry Bread as an officially designated symbol that represent South Dakota's diversity. Both residents of South Dakota cheered this news.

Also, there are more indications that the low-carb diet craze may be beginning to fade. About time.

As Lewis Black said on The Daily Show: "The Atkins diet tells us that bread is bad. Bread is evil. Huh. So apparently, we've been doing it all wrong SINCE THE DAWN OF CIVILIZATION!"
