Traveling Fish & Swapping Tomatoes
I caught a bit of Michael Pollan on Fresh Air this afternoon. I love listening to people that tell me how crazy our world is. Some nuggets of info from Pollan:
– We catch Salmon in Alaska, ship it to China to be filleted, and they ship it back for us to eat. What, is there a shortage of American filleters?
– We import tomatoes from Mexico and we export tomatoes to Mexico. I would love to get a picture at the border of tomato trucks passing each other.
Is this an error? “We catch Salmon in Alaska, ship it to Alaska to be filleted, and they ship it back for us to eat.”
Not that I am perfect (hence why my master’s thesis says “excising females” instead of “exercising females”)
Yep, that was an error. I meant to say ship it to China. Thanks.
Excising females, huh? Don’t you need a permit to do that in Indiana?
