WONDER BREAD IS, WELL, WONDERFUL
Alex Tabarrok discovers that modern civilization isn't all bad.
I've been buying this organic bread recently. I'm not a big organic guy (could you guess?) but it's low-carb and yet doesn't taste like cardboard. Several times, however, the bread has gone moldy within a day or two. Yuck. So I took some back to the store all indignant about how I only just bought this bread and now its moldy. The clerk explained it to me - heh, it's organic - no preservatives, get it? Oh, that's what preservatives do. I will never question civilization again.
