Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. This is supposed to be America. Yet even in this land of plenty some goods are in short supply, including swine flu vaccines, mechanical hamsters, and Eggo waffles. The frozen food maker says floods around Atlanta disrupted its waffle operations. It's hard to find Eggo waffles on many store shelves now. The company did wipe the Eggo off its face and come up with a plan for the next few months: rationing waffles to stores around the country.
