  • President Obama purchased lunch at a San Francisco restaurant that serves shark fin soup, after signing a law last month that protects sharks from being harvested for their fins.
  • (Washington Times)
  • Mr. Obama caused a stir in the liberal California city when he made a surprise lunch stop Thursday at a Chinatown restaurant that sells shark fin soup. Banning shark fin products has long been a cause of conservationists.
  • (Wall Street Journal)
  • noting that the eatery is one of just a few that still serves shark fin soup -- a delicacy outlawed in California. Obama is poised to raise millions for his re-election effort this week at a series of high-end events on the West Coast.

  • and researching the sale of shark fin soup in Saipan restaurants. Wow, an effort worthy of a nomination for a Benchley Youth Activism award! Which brings us back to building the future now, not from anxiety but from gracious resolve.
