Today we are going to confess a small shortcoming that has plagued us all for an undetermined amount of time.  Why you ask?


I ask why not?  I will even begin.


There was a time I thought the Newman’s Best brand was something silly.  A reasonably good product for a reasonable price.  By “reasonably good” I mean it’s better than the partially gelatinized goo that Kraft puts out.  The guy threw his face on everything, and sent all the proceeds to charity.  Then I turned 14 and discovered that charitable donations are tax deductible.

Newman’s Best is nothing more than a scheme for Paul Newman to avoid paying taxes, and when presented by that angle it is something to respect.  Its bothered me since then that it took me 14 years to figure this out.  That is my confession.


Now you go.
