Paper is to rock as candy is to wounded warriors?

From an article in the where a viewer poll picked a story for the CBS Evening news "Assignment America" to cover. It seems today candy beats the blood of patriots almost everytime.

A Tuscola candy shop will appear this Friday on the "CBS Evening News," thanks to the help of area computer users. CBS News announced Sunday night that Flesor's Candy Kitchen in downtown Tuscola was the top choice in Internet voting over the weekend.
The story of a Greek immigrant named Gus Flesor establishing the shop in 1901 and two granddaughters who reopened the shop in 2003 got more votes than a story on fly fishing for wounded soldiers and a 13-year-old boy who is the CEO of a baseball bat company.
