Bill Marler Addresses the WSU - Pollan Controversy

Here is an update to the previous blog post about Washington State University's decision to pull the Michael Pollan book, Omnivore's Dilemma from its mandatory freshman read.

It turns out that noted food safety lawyer Bill Marler is an alumnus of WSU. Anxious to provide his "Cougars" with a chance to do right by this issue, Mr. Marler publicly offered to pay to bring Michael Pollan to speak at the university. The Chronicle of Higher Education reported that WSU accepted his generous offer. Looks like the students will have lots to talk about, with food and agriculture at the forefront of the discussion.
