Weekly Wrap

The must-see of the week goes to NPR’s haunting before/after slider shots of Joplin.

In other news, you should watch Manchester United vs. Barcelona tomorrow in the Champions League final (1:30 p.m.). Also, lunch at Bleu today will get you a) some good food, and b) the warm fuzzies from lending a hand to Joplin.The Italians seem to be getting serious about their beer. Cooking pork correctly turns out to be safe after all. Behold the Grillenium Falcon. Oprah’s going away (no doubt like Celine Dion “went away”) and the RFT broke down her 7 greatest food moments. St. Louis’ Salume Beddu isn’t just a hit with the locals (and yours truly). The best Columbia food blog you’re not reading is that of Jill Speake, part of the Sycamore ownership crowd and, as looks would have it, a damn fine cook in her own right. Go to the Salute to Veterans Airshow this weekend. Coming to the Travel Channel in July: “Truck Stop Missouri,” set at our very own Midway exit <cringe>.

Finally, everyone lost their minds this week over the cuteness that is this cat video. But I speak a fair amount of cat, and I’m pretty sure Momma is saying “Now Go the F to Sleep.” A sample:

The cats nestle close to their kittens now.
The lambs have laid down with the sheep.
You’re cozy and warm in your bed, my dear.
Please go the fuck to sleep.
