Tilapia tonight?

The World Food Prize -- the best use of seats & microphones in Iowa's House of Representatives, ever.

The academic awarded this year's World Food Prize is the genius behind Southeast Asia aqua farming. You can thank Dr. Modadugu Vijay Gupta for giving unemployed women life saving business opportunities (Iowa, take a hint) and putting Tilapia on all of our plates.

If, in celebration, you rush to the Hy-Vee for your Tilapia fix, please, oh please, don't forget the curry before you bring it home to attempt something. In this instance, curry is more than a symbolic gesture.

Aside: I honestly thought -- for about five minutes -- about the realistic application of aqua farming in Iowa, and then, on the back of my palate, I had the strangest sensation of a nitrate induced algae bloom. Go figure?
