Fishy Story

I'll never look at my sashimi in quite the same way again. Monica Eng, Delroy Alexander and David Jackson of the Chicago Tribune revealed today that much of the sushi sold in the U.S. is supplied through businesses controlled by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his controversial Unification Church. "Sushi and Rev. Moon" details how the self-proclaimed messiah and his disciples, sometimes called "moonies," built a business empire that dominates sushi production from the boats that catch the fish through the distributors who ship it to the restaurants that sell it. This story comes with delicious graphics by Van Tsui and Phil Geib.,1,6131847.htmlstory?coll=chi-news-hed

The Tribune gave us another winner last week. "This is no Pitcher, This is an Altruist" by Lucinda Hahn shares the story of Ryan Devlin, who gave up the chance to see his beloved White Sox play in the World Series last fall for something more important. Thanks to Matt Presser for pointing this story out to me.,1,5224497.story
