Food For Thought

I know I'm not supposed to get political but the Katrina disaster and how the feds have handled it, makes me think of our rivers here in the Pacific Northwest, specifically the Snake and Columbia. The Bush Administration doesn't seem to understand nor care that our precious resource (Wild Salmon) is becoming extinct. That is why I talk so much about Alaska Wild Salmon. The environment and habitat are pristine and the State of Alaska does a terrific job of managing their fishery. As a result, the Salmon continue to make themselves available to us year after year. The proof of the pudding is the number of Salmon coming up the Columbia these days - it's now in the hundreds of fish per year. It used to be in the hundreds of thousands, some years I hear were in the millions of fish. Doesn't that tell you that something is wrong with our governments meddling in salmon affairs? Chew on that!

Right on Duke! You started the whole 'Farmed Salmon versus Wild Salmon' debate by taking a stand and saying "WILD ONLY"! Maybe your strength can get the government to clean up the Columbia too! Go get 'em and keep serving that salmon Wild from Alaska!

Duke, I'll make up for the people who will stop eating at your places.

There is a related article in the P-I today, how depletion of wild salmon is affecting local orca pods. The short version is that three adults have disappeared and are presumed dead. Just before disappearing, their appearances indicated insufficiant calories/starvation.

The meditations in Food for Thought focus on our need for support, compassion, understanding, and acceptance of our compulsive eating. Each daily reading provides encouragement for turning to our Higher Power for comfort and addresses the steps and concerns that help us in our recovery.
