Teaser Tuesday and Where Are You? 06-23-09: All Over Creation

Should Be Reading - Miz B - hosts this weekly event. We throw out a couple of sentences from our current read (without spoilers, of course) to entice you to read the book.

From All Over Creation by Ruth Ozeki, page 259:
He sailed in, staying low and light on his board, ducking and weaving. By the time the CEO saw him coming, Mr. Potato Head had achieved what was later judged to be perfect pie proximity. Frankie drew back his arm and let the pie fly.

It's Tuesday, Where Are You? is hosted by an adventure in reading.

I am in Liberty Falls, Idaho, near Pocatello on a potato farm. Controversy is brewing between farmers, agribusiness and those opposed to genetically modified plants. I'm learning a lot about the politics and the science of GMOs and about the future of food and seeds.
