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.
