Well-armed Spider-Man desktop wallpaper (link roundup)

The cover to Amazing Spider-Man #611 features Spider-Man and an approving Deadpool by Skottie Young. I took the liberty of creating a desktop wallpaper with the art.

And a few more links:

1. The only interesting stories I read about the baseball all-star game:
a. Obama threw a lousy pitch and Fox tried to cover it up.
b. The Observer from Fringe was shown on tv (which is getting old), but the footage was possibly filmed before the game and inserted into the feed.

2. Forcing restaurants to put caloric content on menus has apparently played a role in causing some restaurants to offer healthier choices. "Macaroni Grill . . . has managed to squeeze a whopping 880 calories out of just one salad." Via.

3. Over the weekend, a Los Angeles prosecutor appeared on Larry King and offered opinions on the potential prosecution of Michael Jackson's doctor[s]. It seemed obviously improper and indeed she's since resigned.

4. Wired rounds up evidence indicating that running barefoot (or in expensive Nikes that mirror being barefoot) is better for your body. Via.
