In an article on raw food titled Totally Uncooked by Peggy Orenstein,
she is referring to a chef (as my wife says, how can you call her a chef
if she doesn't cook anything?) named Roxanne Klein, and her husband
Michael Klein.
On p 52: "But Klein, 47, is no farmer. A Harvard M.B.A. ......before
dropping out to hand with the Grateful Dead....."

The stinky but funny part:
On p 54: "The Kleins, in both wealth and philosophy, represent something
new: the nexus solidified over the last decade, between computer culture
and the counterculture. After Klein sold his final high-tech venture in
1994, he became not only chairman of the Rainforest Action Network but
also C.E.O. of the ex-Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir's Modulus
Guitars. He turned vegan with Weir and Jerry Garcia while touring with
the Dead (although picturing Garcia as a vegan is like imagining
President Clinton as a celibate)."

so why, if raw food is so good, is raw meat not included? Fresh killed,
dripping with blood, and all those natural enzymes undestroyed by
heat.......

Weir is vegan? I have never heard that before, one of his "Weirs Sauces" has
Worschshire(sp?) sauce as an ingredient, which contains anchovies, definately
not vegan.

That would be Worcestershire, although Bob might read it as erihsretsecroW.

I just finished a good book, "Looking For Alaska" by Peter Jennings.
Some of the residents of the Barrow, Alaska neighborhood have some
nice raw "dishes." One is "Stink Flipper," which is Walrus flipper
stuck in a box to "age" for a few weeks. It is eaten raw. The other is
raw caribou dipped in seal oil.

My local markets don't seem to carry these items.

Oh well, I guess if the media needs to goof on anyone, it's best that they
goof on Marin County. It keeps out the riff-raff and the republicans.
