Kerry's House of Ketchup #6
I can taste the tomato concentrate made from red ripe tomatoes, the distilled vinegar, the high fructose corn syrup, the (ordinary, I guess) corn syrup, the salt, spice, onion powder, and natural flavoring (Aren't salt et. al. "natural?"). Oh, to have a hamburger or hot dog right now. Ketchup is more than just a yummy topping to meat products a french fries. It's also a "natural source of the antioxidant lycopene." But enough with the good things about ketchup. The only reason I care is because Sen. John Kerry wouldn't have the Boston house he put in hock to fund his then-slumping campaign if it wasn't for his wife, Theresa Heinz-Kerry. And Mrs. Heinz-Kerry would have her fortune without ketchup. With that it's time for the latest edition of Kerry's House of Ketchup.
