Speaking of first person (see below) the Trib offers this lazy, cynical, naive first-person whine about how haaaard it is to understand where your food comes from. I’m as turned off as the next person by sanctimonious food fascists, but equating conscious eaters with dog abusers and acid casualties doesn’t really add so much to the debate. But heads up: the Tribune, it seems, is open to pitches from writers on books they haven’t read.
