Food for thought
Peter Rukavina, a Web consultant from Canada who’s behind www.reinvented.net, wrote this from Boston:
“There are non-Mcdonalds food options in the entrance of the Media Center. They appear to have cases upon cases of Red Bull. What is Red Bull, anyway? There are also salads, breakfast cereals, and what looks like fruit salad.”
