Food is, by and large, trust-based commerce: what ends up on your plate doesn't have a bar code and is nearly impossible to track back. The farm-to-table movement will die a death of a thousand cuts if there aren't more clear-eyed efforts to make our food system more transparent. Laura Reiley has been the Tampa Bay Times' food critic since 2007 and was a Pulitzer and James Beard finalist in 2017.
The U.S. Constitution was written in the eighteenth century and only four sheets long in its original form, but it has served America very well for centuries. Popular speaker and attorney Thomas Hyde JD, University of Miami, will address the intellectual and philosophical influences undergirding the U.S. Constitution with particular attention given to the Declaration of Independence.
