Hard to see anything funny in the unending eco-disaster. The awful truth is that Gulf seafood was in trouble even before the greed got visibly out of control. And partly for the same reason. Americans are as hooked on cheap food as much as cheap gas. But some of the concerned reports have had their moments. I felt enlightened knowing the original blackener looks “very much the way he does on the labels of his dry rubs and sauces.” Nice ad in a news column, but I suspect he looks a lot smaller or he would not be on that boat. . .
