This piece by Amy Harmon over at The New York Times is good journalism at its best. Take a thorny issue like genetically engineered foods, which people — particularly in the Michael Pollan-devotee-rich East Bay — approach with an almost religious fervor, and instead tackle it through the lens of human narrative. Harmon follows orange farmers in Florida as they struggle to figure out a way to save the state’s plagued orange crop, which genetic engineering alone may have the power to save. — Azeen Ghorayshi
