Where Have All The Pizza Parlors Gone? - 03/31/14

  When I was growing up, I always considered a treat when my folks would take us out for pizza.  Hard to beat pizza and a coke.  I like to do the same thing now and again with my family but it's not as easy as it used to be.
  I've noticed a lot of the places you used to be able to go and order a pizza and sit down and eat it have closed.  There are tons of places to order a pizza for carry out or delivery.  To me, it's just not the same experience.  There's still a couple of sit down pizza parlors in Gallatin not far from my house.  I'm doing what I can to make sure they don't go away.  Tell me about some of the pizza parlors near you.

HONG KONG (AP) -- A Hong Kong tycoon is on a roll -- or make that a Rolls. Stephen Hung is placing the biggest order ever for Rolls-Royce cars. He's dropping 20 mil to buy 30 Phantoms. The luxury rides will be used to chauffeur high-rollers at a resort he's building in the global gambling capital of Macau.

HARPER-FAN EJECTED

ATLANTA (AP) -- You're outta here! But the ejection at the Braves-Nationals game wasn't a player. The ump booted a fan Tuesday night. Umpire Tim Welke tells the AP a foul-mouthed fan was heckling Washington outfielder Bryce Harper. Welke says he saw the fan come down to the backstop and start shouting profanity in the sixth inning. Welke had him removed from Turner Field in Atlanta. The longtime crew chief says Harper thanked him the next time he came up. Welke adds, "enough is enough."
