Frazz (10/20/08)

“Do I dare to eat a peach?” When T.S. Eliot penned that curious line in 1915, he was referencing the type of crippling alienation that could make a man feel foolish for enjoying one of life’s simple pleasures. Had he written the same line 90 years later, he could very well have referenced the lack of oversight plauging the world’s food supply. I’ve never purchased even a passable peach from a grocery store, although I’ve tried on numerous occasions. The once tasty fruit might not be dangerous in its modern incarnation, but it certainly is dry and flavorless.
