Al Gore: Not So Down and Out in Beverly Hills

That Al Gore is an enviro-hypocrite is not exactly news and I would have ignored the fact that he served Chilean Sea Bass at his daughter’s Beverly Hills (what happened to Tennessee?) wedding – except that I have been abjuring the fish for years, thinking it was endangered. And Chilean Sea Bass is one of my favorite foods! Even so I wouldn’t dream of serving at a party for fear of coming under attack by the Green Harpies. Never mind that it is unclear whether these particular pisces were still endangered – I didn’t want to risk it. But I’m not Al Gore and my noblesse oblige quotient isn’t sufficiently high to ignore public opinion or my own guilty conscience. Maybe I need some fish offsets to go along with my carbon offsets.
