    Did Michael Pollan Throw the Whole Foods Debate? (Just Asking)What exactly is up with Michael Pollan? We sat up late into the night waiting for him to put hard questions to Whole Foods CEO John Mackey in the discussion we previewed the other day. Part of Pollan’s bestselling book The Omnivore’s Dilemma was devoted to unmasking Whole Foods’ claims to sustainability and the like, but when the author finally sat down with Mackey, he was as cordial and giving as the publicity-obsessed CEO. Still, the discussion being two hours and all, there were inevitably highlights. (If you prefer to comb through it yourself, you may do that here.)

    Michael Pollan Versus Whole Foods: The SmackdownIt’s a match made for the ECW: John Mackey, co-founder of Whole Foods, versus Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma, the best-selling critical overview of modern industrial foodways that reveals Whole Foods to be … just another big supermarket chain! In an open letter, Mackey has accused the writer of not doing his research, but this afternoon they will meet face-to-face and finally resolve the question of who’s handier with a folding chair. Actually, they’re just going to debate, after Mackey gives a presentation modestly called “The Past, Present, and Future of Food.” It’s happening at the University of California, Berkeley, at 10 p.m. our time; you can see it Webcast live here — or wait for our breathless take on the proceedings tomorrow.
