Veggie Tales


Virginia Postrel digs up a Washington Post piece that explains the recent rise of what was once an oxymoron: tasty supermarket tomatoes. The article has, in her words, "all the elements of a contemporary business yarn -- globalization, intellectual property disputes, secretive business deals." It's such a good read, in fact, that I couldn't imagine why I didn't hear about it when it was originally published … until I noticed that it came out on September 12, 2001.
