Lunch Room Chatter: The Pig Kingdom approaches!

By Tim Carman

The latest in food news, ideas and philosophy, just in time for your lunch break.

Before we start today, Lunch Room Chatter wants to extend its sympathies to those victims in the Arizona shooting and hopes Rep. Gabrielle Giffords recovers to the point where she can stand as a living, breathing, working symbol of what's gone wrong with our country's politics. (Okay, sorry, the air is getting a little thin on this soap box.)
