Who says organic is for sissies? (Wait, is baseball considered sissy …? I’m really not tapped into the sports world, being a longtime sissy myself. Anyhoo!) San Diego’s Petco Park and St. Louis’s Busch Stadium are going to start selling organic hotdogs and bratwursts at the games of, uh, whatever teams play in those stadiums. They expect the dogs to cost about a buck more than the pesticide- and hormone-ridden variety. Hot dogs are still, of course, hot dogs, and even if they come from the happiest pigs on the planet, eating pig guts ain’t healthy. But hey, progress is progress!
