If you want to get big and fat in this country and grow to the size of the Goodyear blimp, there is no shortage of opportunities to do so. The latest comes courtesy of the folks at Domino's Pizza, who have come up with a new offer that makes some of their previous offers look like an order of celery sticks by comparison. The new offer is this: order a large pizza and Domino's will throw in a free order of 10 oven-baked brownies. Yes, brownies. Apparently, this is being offered on the theory that after someone polishes off, say, a thick, cheesy, pepperoni pizza and collapses on the couch in a stupor, the first thing he or she thinks is: Boy, it would be great to have some brownies right about now. Pizza and brownies - is that an artery-clogging doubleheader, or what?

MIAMI -- To get from the nearest Domino's Pizza franchise to the affluent seaside resort of Amelia Island Plantation, Fla., you have to pass through American Beach, a tiny enclave where all but four of the 75 residents are black.Yet residents of Amelia Island Plantation could get a Domino's pizza delivered at home, but James and Joyce Robinson and their American Beach neighbors had to go to a convenience store in town and wait for their delivery.Power Pizza Inc., which operates the Domino's franchise in nearby Fernandina Beach, believed that American Beach was not a safe area for home delivery.

Here's to the classic neighborhood pizza joint, long may it live. Unfortunately, this garlicky and grand quick-and-dirty eating destination has become something of a dinosaur in these days of Pizza Hut, Domino's Pizza and other big chains. But a fine example exists in Catonsville, tucked into a corner of the Forty West shopping center on Rolling Road. By all rights, this place should be called Tony's Pizza, and, indeed, that's what the voice on the other end of the phone says when you call for a take-out order.
