Globalization of Sushi

This is a cool article in Reason.

The history that they discuss regarding sushi is interesting. I really liked this part:
Trevor Corson sees serendipity in the global economy in The Zen of Fish (HarperCollins): “The Japanese have a nickname for bluefin—shibi. It means ‘four days.’ In the age before refrigeration, when someone caught a bluefin, he buried it in the ground for four days before eating it.” Now that time is spent traveling, but the result is the same: a great lunch.
Now that is different.

Reason also has an article on the Nanny state Prohibitionists that frankly is as irritating as the food nazis in NY.
