Peyton Manning, Pizza & Weed FTW!

Here’s a big winner in the 2012 elections – on Friday Peyton Manning inked a deal to open 21 Papa John’s pizza places as the chain’s newest franchisee, all in the Denver area. Last night, Coloroado voted in favor of a measure that would legalize the sale of pot to adults, without the need for a doctor’s prescription.

I’m guessing Manning’s franchises will do a roaring trade, despite his being a staunch Republican.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
