The skinny: Two Iowa couples marry at bacon festival

Romance sizzles

Iowa couples get married at bacon festival

Two couples decided to tie the knot at last weekend's bacon festival at the state fairgrounds in Des Moines. Tricia Snider and Tom Watson were the first to wed Saturday at the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival, the Des Moines Register reported. Craig and April Rouch got married a short while later. Watson, 47, said his 41-year-old bride is nearly the No. 1 love in his life. "She's second only to bacon," he said. They exchanged vows about staying together "in good times and bacon." Afterward, a cake topped with a bacon-strip bride and groom awaited them.

He's shocked

Rob Ford ticketed for jaywalking

It seems the Toronto mayor can't cross the street these days without getting into trouble. The mayor's spokesman confirmed Saturday that Ford received a jaywalking ticket Friday night in a suburb of Vancouver, British Columbia. Toronto's embattled mayor last year made international headlines when he admitted having smoked crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor. The Toronto Sun quoted Ford as saying he was shocked officers gave him a jaywalking ticket and that "they went out of their way to do this." Council members in the municipality where Ford was ticketed, Coquitlam, dismissed any suggestion that police singled him out.
