Foodies live in the Midwest? And they have some good restaurants there? Who knew? The focus of this article is the Kansas City restaurant scene -- Bluestem and the American Restaurant, in particular -- but St. Louis earns a mention. (New York Times)

Meanwhile, developments in our two favorite stories:

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey apologizes while the company launches an internal investigation into his postings as "rahodeb." (CNNMoney)
