I thought this would be about a Dana Sobel book.
The Unbearable Lightness of Herring was Milan Kundera's diet book.A spinoff.
Sorry, Dava Sobel
Or a sequel to this.
I thought it was about Ma Baensch's pickled herring. I love that stuff. Boy, was I wrong.
Even if Tom is correct about the impact of Herring on a case similar to Randolph, that isn't going to be very persuasive to those of us who think Randolph was a mistake, because the upshot will be a marginal limitation on the practical effect of a misguided doctrinal step.Meanwhile, Orin Kerr thinks Tom's point is overheated.
Thanks, Henry. Cod was the book I was trying to remember.
Thanks, Henry. Cod was the book I was trying to remember.Funny. It was your mention of Dava Sobel that made me think of it.
Cod is a far inferior book to The Founding Fish, by John McPhee, which concerns itself with shad.I'll leave a comparison of the fish to the diner. Both are great in my book!
McPhee certainly has a better knack with titles than Kurlansky. I'll look that one up.
which concerns itself with shad.Shad is far too bony to eat, so why concern yourself with it? On the other hand, cod is delicious, and dried cod is a Mediterranean staple food.
Ebullient Ella effervescently enunciates:Electric eels, I might add, do it,Though it shocks 'em, I know.Why ask if shad do it - Waiter, bring me shad roe.

If, on top of a deliberate error, a negligent error were enough to trigger the exclusionary rule wouldn't that put police and the FBI at a tremendous disadvantage vis-a-vis terrorists?
Are you implying it wasn't read?
"You must cut down the mightiest tree in the forest... WITH... A HERRING!"
While salt cod wasn't a staple in my part of (western) Massachusetts, I've come to love it, perhaps even favoring it over fresh cod.But shad, bones or not, has mighty virtues. You have to take time cleaning it and it calls for some special cooking techniques, though. I actually prefer the fish to the roe. Very few restaurants actually cook it properly. And I can't cook it properly myself!
fls: "Shad is far too bony to eat, so why concern yourself with it? "May Nero Wolfe and Archie Goodwin jump up and down on you till your eyes pop out. (Mind you, Nero could handle it but Archie is his dawg and will never be far behind.)Why concern yourself? Barbarian.
