Why don’t we eat bugs? Check out these amazing facts about insects and why they may be the future of food.

Many insects are actually quite nutritous, it’s mostly squirmishness which prevents many of us from fully appreciating these delicasies. I once saw a show in which a fantastic chef injected crickets with what I think was jelly or something with similar texture.

The UN says bug farms would solve world hunger.

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.

The Absence of Native American Power from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo.

In an extended clip from this weekend’s Moyers & Company, writer Sherman Alexie, who was born on a Native American reservation, talks to Bill about feeling “lost and insignificant inside the larger culture,” and how his culture’s “lack of power” is illustrated in stereotypical sports mascots.

“At least half the country thinks the mascot issue is insignificant. But I think it’s indicative of the ways in which Indians have no cultural power. We’re still placed in the past. So we’re either in the past or we’re only viewed through casinos,” Alexie tells Bill. “I know a lot more about being white than you know about being Indian.”
