Chicken of the Sea by Steven A. Shaw (NY Times): An op-ed about why pregnant women have nothing to fear from sushi. Now, if someone would only write the same article about salami and good cheese.
Show Organic Farmers the Money by Andrew Leonard (Salon - annoying ad to view): I'm a huge fan of Leonard's "How the World Works" blog, which teases out the most improbable connections between economies and cultures.

Why the Dark Glasses? by Greg Kitsock (Washington Post): Anheuser-Busch has released a new draft-only "micro"brew, Skipjack Amber. Not only does the company admit that its reputation is mud by removing the Anheuser-Busch name from the beer, but it's designated Skipjack Amber a regional Southeastern brew. Which means you, snooty Northwestern ale-coholic, won't be able to taste it.
