After asking what readers have for breakfast that many might find strange as start-the-day food, I got emails from a couple of local people who said they sometimes have leftover pizza.
I assumed everyone had done that. But maybe I am wrong.
So I wonder just how common that is.
Two suspects have been identified in a knife-point robbery that netted four pizzas and nothing else.
Manuel Torres, 21, has been charged with first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery for the Jan. 29 heist in the area of 1800 W. Gardner Ave.
A 16-year-old girl is charged as a juvenile.
The two are accused of stealing four pizzas from a Domino's Pizza delivery driver after the girl ordered five pizzas. Spokane police believe Torres threatened the man with a knife and grabbed the top pizza bag containing four pizzas.
The girl had placed the order from her mother's cellphone. Her mother identified her to police as having her phone that night. The victim and other witnesses identified the girl and Torres from photo montages.

OLYMPIA – Rules for growing, processing and selling medical marijuana passed the Washington state House of Representatives after heated debate Monday on whether the proposed law has enough safeguards to prevent sales to children.
The bill passed the House without an amendment proposed as a joke by Rep. Glenn Anderson, R-Fall City (pictured).
The amendment would require the state to reimburse medical marijuana patients for the cost of pizza they ate while high on legal pot.
The Department of Health would reimburse the patient "no later than five business days after the patient submits a receipt for the pizza," according to the amendment, which Anderson withdrew on Monday.
The department would not reimburse for delivery charges, tips or more than three toppings.
"For purposes of this section, "pizza" means a pie with a bread crust topped with tomato sauce, cheese, and various toppings," according to the amendment. ""Pizza" includes Chicago style deep dish, New York style thin crust, and stuffed crust."
Some advocates criticized the amendment has insensitive to medical cannabis patients; others found it humorous.
The smell of hot pizza helped police arrest a robbery suspect Monday.

Brent Andrews: My pizza delivery gig for this Great Recession pays about $15 an hour with tips - sometimes up to $30/hr. - not bad work, either, ‘specially if you don’t mind mopping the store and doing a few dishes. You probably don’t mind that. U might check around. For me pizza delivery has been a recession-buster. I went into it on Dave Ramsey’s radio advice - he’s always telling people to deliver pizzas, on his show - and so far it has been a God-send.
Question: Have you ever delivered pizza for a living? Any good stories to tell us about?
