No it's not, but I bet I got your attention. Each day we are bombarded with bad news, latest killing, weather disaster, war, stock market-- you name we get it.
I think the best thing for us to do, is to gather information on the things you can make a difference in.
I had a very interesting conversation with a friend about the ethical thought that goes into what I sell at my restaurant. The bases of the conversation centered around why I don't sell Chilean Sea Bass. It's been proven to me that we are sending a species to extinction by over fishing it when there are better alternatives. It's my choice, in my restaurant and I don't care what the customer thinks about this. I've had conversations with customers asking for it for their party and wouldn't do it.
But enough with the preaching. There is a documentary called Food Inc that was released last summer. It's worth a look. If your a little older then me you will recognize first hand a lot of the facts. If your younger then me you'll be shocked.
