Schlosser's op-ed on the fucked-up economics of fast food tomato growing in Florida is worth a read and a reflection. Almost as remarkable is the significant cohort of Times readers who are batshit Idaho meth-brewing ultra-right
zealots and make comments condemning Schlosser's lack of respect for the market.* If you can walk into a BK after reading this between now and Christmas and order a fucking Whopper, you deserve a lump of coal in your stocking, and said coal inserted into your temple, bolo-steez.
*With such a significant proportion of Times readers likely committed to drinking only their own filtered urine, it hardly seems worth it for Maker's Mark to splash out for a full-page ad, even if it is cheek by jowl with an article on Bourbon's new cachet.
