I assume everyone who reads this knows about Civil Eats http://civileats.com/, but just in case, here's a story from my local paper about this local effort with nationwide (global?) influence.
If I'm remembering correctly, when Civil Eats first appeared it said something about ethics. Perhaps ethics has become an unfashionable word? So now we have "critical thought" as a substitute, just like we have "social equity" instead of economic justice. Hmmm.
