Lennie Ambrose clued us into Food Insurance, a company that sells food that lasts at least 25 years, so customers can enjoy it while everyone else perishes due to end times. Something seemed a bit off about this concept, but we couldn't figure out what, until commenter CMN wrote in:
If you're carrying around a 2 week supply of food in a backpack during the apocalypse, you probably don't want that back pack to advertise its contents. Idiots.
Good catch, CMN: a flaw in an otherwise foolproof plan. Paging Glenn Beck...

Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
