You are here for research and research you shall have. This week, we have exhaustive features and quick glance reports about sodium reduction in food development and formulation. Trends! Technologies! Can you dig it!?

As you are well aware, I rarely dare to use such perverse slang. However, evening last, I took in the first fifteen minutes of a film called The Warriors. In the film, a character keeps repeating the phrase, "Can you dig it," to a rather large crowd of what one may call 1970s street tuffs. Initially, I was engrossed. I had never heard such compelling language, nor, it seemed, had many of those street tuffs.
I listened along with them to the charismatic speaker, and then just as his speech crescendoed, a rogue member of the audience shot him with a revolver.

Well, that was enough for me, so I turned off the projector, brought the lights back up and continued my studies of practical candle-making. Let me save you time should you ever dare to take up candle-making... follow the practical teachings. The impractical ones, though compelling, are truly harbingers of bad habits.

Wouldn't you know, just as I established a rhythm with my studies, the doorbell rang. And wouldn't you also know that standing on my stoop was my childhood friend and current neighbor Sherwood Day.

"Did you watch the film I lent to you?"
"The beginning, but no more."
"Well, let's finish it."

Before I could protest, he stormed past me opened my not-so-secret candy drawer and adjusted himself into a davenport cushion.
That was thirteen hours ago.
He's still sitting there as I write.
Stand off! I will not watch this film, and he will not leave!
Stand off! I will win!
And so will you...

Your weekly reduction!
