Snob water

I'm not sure how long it will be accesible but this is a great look at sustainablilty and fashionable restaurants, food trends, and consumer choices as regards drinking water.
I like the convoluted logic it takes for people to realise that shipping water around the globe is ridiculous, as well as the Chez Panisse admission that they would still import wines from the best regions of the world. I admit, I would miss the thrill of having access to the finest things in the world (even shipping Japanese saws to cut dovetails in Georgia...) but it does make you think about what sorts of shipping and imports are really critical.
