solidarity through pizza

people powered pizza powers people! the power of the 'za!

while you probably can't precisely equate the overthrow of whole regimes in the mideast to the budget standoff happening at the wisconsin state capitol, the two actions have some things in common, not the least of which is a mass occupation of public space.

and when that many people get together, they're going to need to eat at some point. apparently, someone in egypt decided the folks in madison, wisc., need pizza.
politico reports that ian's on state street - part of a regional pizza chain - has received hundreds of donations for free pies for the wisconsin protesters from all over the world, including egypt. and yes, donors in the u.s. have chipped in, too.

the store began getting international orders last week and noted it on its facebook page. that appears to have kicked off a flood of calls from overseas. - sfgate
