Blame the Vain.
It’s hard to imagine, but there was a time not all that long ago where most folks in the U.S. didn’t know what pizza was. In 1944 the New York Times first introduced its readers to the dish, which it noted was becoming a favorite of soldiers serving overseas in Italy. Then, in 1947, the paper concluded that “The pizza could be as popular a snack as the hamburger if Americans only knew about it.”
The same could be said about a lot of things, we suppose. For instance, this week in Dallas could be really great, fun-filled, action packed if more people in town only knew about it. Which is exactly what we’re trying to do here.
