I didn’t realize it was such a rare phenomenon. I rarely buy boneless chicken, and we roast a whole one (or split and grill it) almost every week, and then make soup with the leftovers, and have been doing it for years.
I continue to wonder how much this will change peoples’ eating habits, now that so many have learned to cook. It may mean that the restaurant industry will never recover to pre-plague levels.
This is not good news. The head of Tyson says that it is breaking.

A plan to prevent the coming food shortage. As usual, it involves deregulation.
Red tape continues to need cutting. Food labeling remains stupid, particularly in terms of calorie counting. And Schumer continues to be a derriere fedora.
Why there’s a frozen-fry shortage.
Nutrition labels, to the degree that they provide calorie information, are worse than useless, because calorie counting is stupid. FDA should not only suspend them, but eliminate them.
How safe is it?
I’ve never worried about the food itself; my concern is the packaging. As it says, take the food out of it, dispose, and wash your hands. It’s also good that the drive-through cashiers are holding out the machine for you to insert your card in, rather than taking it from you and handing it back.
It’s not about hoarding.
That makes sense. It would imply that places who specialize in supplying businesses, like Smart and Final in LA, would have plenty.

It’s disrupting the locavore supply chain as well.
We’re now seeing the fragility of our civilizational infrastructure. It needs to be more robust and resilient.
I’ve never frequented them much; I think the price for a drink at one is ridiculous, but they’re an important element of culture.
Hey, I’d like to end them, too, but his solution–to go vegetarian–is not nutritionally viable to me. It would be in no way a dietary improvement.
It sure would be great if we could somehow manufacture meat without the suffering, though. It’s a technology that would be very useful for spaceflight.
Yes, it’s long past time to ban them. It should be a condition of re-engagement with the Chinese economy.
I’ve never been a big patron of restaurants, both for reasons of cost and health (plus I hate being waited on and having to tip for it), but I’m glad that people who were are trying to help with gift cards.

I should note, here or someplace, that so far this has barely affected my lifestyle at all. I rarely go out to eat, and am generally a hermit when I’m not traveling.
