Yesterday, while the more sane among you were live-tweeting The Bachelor (or live-tweeting NHL players’ live-tweeting it), hugging your families, making not very good pasta sauce or working, the Park Slope Food Co-op debated whether or not they would stop giving out free plastic produce bags. Slate’s Miriam Krule is a member, and being a journalist, decided to do some citizen journalism by live-tweeting the entire meeting. Krule’s tweets are the final chapter in the story of the last famous blow by blow account of a PSFC meeting, that also happened to be about plastic bags.




























































































Did you make it down here? Is anyone still reading? So anyway, equal parts ridiculous and hyper-earnest, but then no one ever said democracy was any fun. And least no one brought up Benghazi or their ideas for Star Wars Episode VII.

  1. Hilarious! So you go to a store using your eco-bag and bring home lots of food that’s packaged in plastic anyway!
    Can we go back to normal mainstream religions like Christianity and Snake Handling for self-actualization and give the Environmentalist a rest? Praise be to Gaia!
