For as much as business howls about arcane government restrictions that cramp its profits, it seems frequently that business itself is as much of an enemy to business as government. I'm speaking specifically here of Pizza Hut's decision to take Papa John's to court over the latter's advertising slogan, "Better Ingredients, Better Pizza. " I think I'm like most consumers. If a pizza company advertises "better ingredients," I simply assume that they've upgraded their sausage from rat- to mouse-based.

HAGERSTOWN -- On the corner of Wilson Boulevard and Maryland Avenue in Hagerstown is a house with rose bushes out front and a somewhat unusual parking lot around back, but no one has lived in the house for nearly a decade. Yet, Peggy Corsi still refers to that house's basement as home, because for 46 years, she has owned Corsi's Pizza Parlour, which operates there. But on June 29, Corsi's will close its doors. Customers, some of whom have been eating there since it opened, will have to stock up on jars of sauce this week if they ever want to taste it again.
