The Secret to a Great Summer Meal:
Fish for the Ingredients Yourself

Wall Street Journal, by Charlotte Druckman

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 7/12/2014 2:33:25 PM

LYING FLAT ON THE deck of a fishing boat was a twenty-pound striped bass, its gills rising and collapsing like the bellows of an accordion. "Purple is the color of adrenaline. That´s why the bass have a purplish tint when you catch them," explained Captain Sloan Gurney of Black Rock Sport Fishing Charters. Standing over the fish, grinning triumphantly, was chef Anita Lo, who had just won the battle with the formidable opponent on the other end of her line. Ms. Lo´s blood could well have been purple at that moment—she was exhilarated. She caught six fish that afternoon in

Comments:
Yes, indeed. Inspectors in our area regularly take samples from their dinner plates to the lab for analysis. Commercially popular fish like gag or black grouper, red or mutton snapper, and other diners´ favorites are sometimes replaced on restaurant menus by less desirable species, but are sneakily sold as a popular species. (It might even be good, but you should get what you´re supposed to get. The best restaurants are honest about what they serve.) If you have a fishing license, catching your own guarantees both freshness and authenticity.

My grandfather took me fishing in the summer when I was a kid. Loved it. I was so proud to be able to bring home some nice flounder for dinner.

There´s no flavor comparison to a fish cleaned and eaten on the banks of the body of water from which it was taken. I´m catch and release unless I plan to eat the fish that same day.

#1 Congratulations.

Never caught the knack of flounder fishing. They never arrived from hook to boat interior. Velcro attachments needed to keep them on the line. However, did hook and bring in a very large dolphin (mai mai) which was the best thrill and excitement ever!! What an experience, and photo!

LAS VEGAS - The mixed martial arts fighter known as War Machine has been extradited to Las Vegas to face charges he beat his ex-girlfriend and then fled to California. The man born Jonathan Paul Koppenhaver was booked into Clark County jail Saturday after he said in a Ventura County, California, courtroom last week that he wouldn´t contest his return to Nevada. Koppenhaver, 32, a former porn actor, is accused of beating adult film actress Christy Mack and her male friend at a Las Vegas home on Aug. 8 before fleeing to the Los Angeles suburb of Simi Valley, where he

A minor drama just concluded in the Middle East. A couple of days ago, Syrian rebels identified with the Nusra front, Syria’s al-Qaeda affiliate, went up to a Fijian United Nations peacekeeping outpost on the Golan Heights and demanded their surrender. (Snip) Nobody ever expects the Philippines to win battles in wartime. It is too weak and poor and disorganized for that. But the population demands of its army that they never be outfoxed. You might die, so long as you die in style. And if you make a fool of the enemy in the process then there is victory

Eden’s greatest attraction is that it was a time before guilt; before hatred, greed and lust took over the world. (Snip) And if our ancestors killed the Neanderthals, then war — and genocide — goes back at least 45,000 years. The interesting thing about this narrative is it suggests that many of the conquerors were conquered in turn. Or as Glenn Reynolds puts it, what if “‘First Peoples’ were actually just the last people to wipe out whoever was there before”? The real honor, apparently belongs not to the First, but to the Last peoples. Thank Gaia we’re the last!

Kamla Negi, a 56-year-old rice farmer and grandmother from a small village in northern India, fought a battle to the death with a wild leopard—and won. She was walking home Sunday when the big cat leapt at her on a quiet path in her village in India’s hilly state of Uttarakhand. “It pounced on me suddenly from the front,” Ms. Negi told The Wall Street Journal in a telephone interview from her bed in an Uttarkhand hospital, where she is recuperating from her ordeal. “Its claws and teeth were on my throat. I could hear it breathing.” Luckily she was

2014 will be a year when the populations of the world began to wake up and smell the smoke. (Snip) But it may be no dream. David Cameron just warned Britain to brace for a possible ISIS attack on its shores. The jayvee ISIS team Obama scoffed at sure gets around. Cameron says ISIS ‘is more dangerous than al-Qaeda’. The doorman the president contemptuously glowered over at the summits is acting uppity too. That doorman, Vladimir Putin, has just used the “N” word in Ukraine. The “N” word being “Nuclear”.

Hillary Clinton´s foreign policy failures

Do not be fooled by Hillary Clinton’s attempt to rehabilitate her term as Secretary of State ahead of the 2016 presidential election. From 2009 to 2013, Clinton embodied U.S. foreign affairs even as President Obama’s avowed policy of self-effacement descended into listless, desultory abdication. Notwithstanding her recent critiques of Obama’s performance, Clinton’s failures as Secretary of State helped bring war to Europe, an arms race to Asia, and inferno to the Middle-East. The U.S. and its international standing are weaker for Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State. Clinton’s mistakes began early, with her contribution to the misconceived and poorly executed

The president has just held a press conference announcing he will do nothing much to counter the crises unfolding in the Ukraine and Syria. The New York Times reports: ’Obama Urges Calm in Face of Two Crises’. (Snip) The sanctions of course, have done nothing to stop Russia so far. It will now take a frightening amount of either military or economic pressure to rein in the Bear. So what’s the president going to do? The only thing he can do: keep going down the road he started. Obama’s time to stand came a long time ago and it’s receding

The late Leo Strauss (1889-1973) was a thinker sufficiently nuanced to allow a wide range of interpretation of his views, and a teacher broad-ranging enough to influence students with divergent interests. (Snip) Not since the late Roman Empire has the problem of willful self-destruction been so relevant to contemporary events. The whole of the industrial world excepting Israel is failing to reproduce itself, and great swaths of Europe and East Asia face demographic ruin at the hundred-year horizon. The civilized world, moreover, confronts mass suicide cults in the Islamic world happy to destroy themselves if only they can take the

My mother remembers how in late 1944 grandpa heard a knock on the door in their apartment in Japanese occupied Manila. (Snip) Betrayal was in the news again today, when Britain was rocked by allegations that the entire English town of Rotherham had for years been in the grip of an “Asian” gang which raped or kidnapped or abused some 1,400 mostly white underaged girls. The town authorities apparently knew as did the police, but they suppressed the facts out of the fear of being called ‘racist’ and more probably, the physical menaces of these ‘Asians’. The ‘Asians’ were of

Perhaps it is only syntactic sugar, but this statement advocating eventual co-existence with Israel from the Saudi Foreign Minister is worth noting. (Snip) The Muslim world has for decades tried to destroy the Jews and in its desperation raised up one tyrant or mad fanatical movement after the other to carry out the program. And now these monsters are starting to turn on them. Syria is ruined; the ‘Arab Spring’ has burned out much of the region. Generations of young men have been brought up with no marketable skills; only a desire for suicide, an aptitude for destruction and an

Recently, several liberal professors visited Gov. Rick Scott to brief him on the “closed” science of global warming. Never mind that many scientists will tell you that science is never closed or settled. These professors — like many in the media, academia and in Hollywood — will continue to scream the sky is falling until they force more polluters out of business and cause the loss of more American jobs. Should you be one of those scientists who dares to question global warming, you stand the chance — like Galileo and Copernicus when they went against the settled science of

The big news in Europe is the dissolution of the French government as various left-wing government factions try to blame each other for the abysmal condition of their economy. ‘French economy going nowhere: now on track for nine straight months of zero growth’, writes the Telegraph. The problem, says Hollande’s critics, is that he isn’t socialist enough. “Two senior left-wing French cabinet ministers have broken ranks with the President, François Hollande, and demanded that Paris abandon the ‘forced march’ of public-spending cuts in Europe.” They warned that unless France did something drastic, like spend more government money, things would fall

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding.

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

Disgraced for hitting the golf course amid crucial ISIS talks, struggling with record-low approval ratings; and now, lambasted for wearing a silly suit. But let´s put things into perspective.

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

Just in case you thought that the Leader of the Free World was secretly harbouring a calculated, well-developed plan for bringing Isil under control and putting Russia’s imperial leader back in his box, Barack Obama banged that idea firmly on the head last week.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

Short of world war, it’s rare that a chief executive goes through a foreign policy month like President Obama’s August. U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
