Whither the Bradley Pink, et al.

Posted By on Wed, Aug 9, 2006 at 10:07 AM

There's a couple that will drive from a place north of Dallas to Warren, Arkansas, to lay their hands on a back seat full of the genuine Bradley Pink tomatoes that once ruled the earth as the greatest exemplar of good summertime eating. Now, it's so hard to find the real Pinks that you have to know somebody, as this couple does, to get the real thing.

Here's a nice piece from the San Francisco Chronicle about how much people are willing to pay to get the old-timey produce of their youth. There's no real Arkie angle except for reminiscing and letting your mouth water.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
