a post from yesterday

On the airplane, I sleep through the meal service. To me, eating on airplanes is absolutely the worst part of air travel. When I wake up, I notice that my breakfast meal has been left for me. Though I had breakfast before flying (how else to pass the time at airports and when else to go to Burger King?), I investigated the special bland meal. The only content of interest was

Immediately following the message that it contained 80% fewer calories than regular jelly was a message that saccharin, the artificial sweetener used to reduce the calorie count from 35 to 5, was known to cause cancer in lab animals.

Thirty calories for potential cancer? I feel very out of touch.
