Food: the future of sci-fi

Robin Sloan at Snarkmarket:

I think that, in the U.S. on any given day, more units of stress and dread are expended in the name of food than in the name of terrorist attacks. Of course, on TV we talk about terrorist attacks. In the President’s Daily Brief, they talk about terrorist attacks. But the dark layer of doom blooming silently beneath the surface-that’s food.

Makes me think of The Road. /shiver
