Year of Local Food

Submitted by lmcshane on Tue, 06/12/2012 - 03:11.

We live on this body of water.

It's beautiful and blue and inviting, but I am afraid of it. Do I really want to eat fish out of Lake Erie?  (The answer is NO).

At the same time, I am definitely fooling myself, if I think that the fish or other food sold to me at the West Side market or even by a higher end purveyor has any better provenance.

I am glad that there are efforts to talk about food and to celebrate food--this year.  I hope that one day--I will want to eat a fish caught in Lake Erie.  I can't avoid the fact that I have to drink the water.

value of posts is comments

I am also concerned that ideas will be arbitarily deleted--archiving and preserving is important. Today's media controls the flow and availability of information, which is why I have made a habit of archiving some of those important comments here.
