- James Chou -






Juliet Eilperin, environmental reporter for the Washington Post, spoke at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies on April 5th 2006. She had been invited by Christine Kim of the Yale Center for Environmental Law and Policy. She later signed her book Fight Club Politics at the Labyrinth Bookstore, a new intellectual haunt in New Haven. The city has changed, not for the better. Rapes, explosions, 9/11 paranoia, has closed the school tighter than a wench's woollies to outsiders. Days of sneaking your education on the fly by moonlighting in the stacks are over! The school also launched a program aimed at getting rid of all printed materials. One might wonder what a school of forestry might venture into once paper mills close for good.


Not everybody loves the digital world... James Chou and his children opened J-Mart, an Asian food market in New Haven, maybe too get away from computers, and perhaps also as a testament to the growing Asian population at Yale. J-Mart has probably the widest selection of Asian food products this side of Chinatown. There I found a wonderful new Aloe drink with chunks of aloe floating inside distributed by Rhee Brothers in Columbia, MD. It's right next to the 7Up in the cooler. I also bought a whole box of 100 organic green tea bags for $4 and change! J-Mart is located just one block away from the old New Haven Coliseum currently undergoing demolition. The Coliseum used to be the mecca of heavy metal in Southern Connecticut in the 70's and 80's. It died along with big hair, spandex, asbestos and working class urban blight.
This is Yale's new science building... more information soon...


More about the environmental series of events at Yale also... need more time to gather my notes... but wanted to post the pictures.
