Another day in which I pass on what I read in the Wall Street Journal this morning, comment on it, and have you guys tell me how wrong I am:

The Journal has a story about fish sticksand how the fish stick industry is looking to get kids excited about fish sticks again. They say fish are transitioning from the frozen stick model to “a fillet that can be cut into a fish stick” instead. 

I personally think that’s gonna be a tough haul because… ew.

You should know, by the way, that I appear to be in a minority here at Marketplace Global headquarters, when it comes to feeling that way.
