Mushroom thieves


The above article that appeared in the local paper today is a sign of the times. 2010 is an excellent year for mushrooms and it appears people of Eastern European origin, who, as R. Gordon Wasson already knew are extremely fond of fungi, are harvesting 'our' mushrooms at a grand scale, probably selling them on to restaurants. This foraging activity is also inspiring Dutch people who consequently poison themselves. The ethics of modern-day foraging still needs to be callibrated.
