Michael Pollan's NY Times Blog
Don't you just hate it when someone has a blog they never update? Drives me crazy too. But I'm working on a top secret project that will be unveiled in the next week or so. Ok, so it's not exactly that big a deal, but it's keeping me rather busy lately, which explains the lack of goings on here. Anyways, back to regular programming where it's all Michael Pollan, all the time...
Mr. Pollan has a new blog for the NYT. It's part of the Times Select subscription, meaning you gotta fork over the dough to read it. Well, not exactly. Using the "hack the Wine Spectator" technique, you can copy the link for any Times Select article, paste it into Google, and then read it through Google's cache. Sorta sneaky, I guess...
From Pollan's first entry:
"I’ve been doing a lot of food reporting over the past couple years and have discovered there are no simple, one-size-fits-all answers to these questions (several of which I hope to take up in future columns). But it seems to me the crucial thing is that such questions about how we should eat, and how what we eat affects both our health and the health of the world, confront us today in a way they never before have. My explorations of the American food chain — or now, food chains — have convinced me that these questions (except perhaps the one about rutabaga) are actually political questions, and much depends on how we choose to answer them."
Here's the link.
