Episode #796: Hipster Lettuce
First Broadcast: 5/7/18
Locally produced Romaine lettuce from New York State would be a good way to avoid the Romaine lettuce from Arizona that's been contaminated by E. coli bacteria. Avoiding contaminated oysters from British Columbia would also be a good idea. While you're at it, maybe also avoid the so-called "raw water" that so many people wrongly think is superior to tap water? Are people buying that crap for the same reasons that inspire people to not vaccinate their kids? Is this irrational distrust of science also the explanation for the increase in the number of people who believe the Earth is flat (possibly resting on pillars)? Is this all a war on science? The beginning of a new dark age? I hope not, but who knows anymore?
So, what is Free New York anyway? The simple answer is that it's a
this neat little
public access TV show on
Manhattan Neighborhood Network which I co-produce with the
tremendous help of my camerawoman/editor/everything else,
Kim. The complicated answer
is that it's a project of mine to broadcast opinions and events which
don't always appear within "the mainstream media" (like The New York Times,
the major networks, local radio, etc.), and so far I think it's been working.
If you think I'm doing a good job--or not--and you feel
like sending me snail mail, the address is:
Free New York
P.O. Box 20945
Tompkins Square Station
New York, NY 10009
You can also email me at email@example.com, which should get to me a lot faster than the snail mail.
Check back later. I'm sure something will turn up.
