Light On Light Through


You'll hear a little of this and lot of that on Light On Light Through - my reviews of great television series, my interviews with authors and creative media people and their interviews of me, my political commentary, thoughts about my favorite cars and food and space travel, discussions of my music, and a few of my readings from my science fiction stories. These are usually audio and a few are video.  In the first years, starting in 2006, I put up a new episode at least once a month.  More recently, it became more or less often than once a month, usually a lot less often.  But in the Fall of 2018, I began getting more in the mood to podcast, and you can expect new episodes now a little more frequently.  - Paul Levinson

One Sharp Cookie

Sep 9, 2007


I guess this comes under the category of you should be careful what you absurdly joke about, lest it become true...

Ever since I was a kid, if I saw a fly land in someone's soup, or on a friend or family member's sandwich, I'd say "hey, a little extra protein, no charge"...

I seldom got much appreciation for the comment.

But it seems I - and who knows how many others - may have been on to something. Take a look that video clip below - wasp cookies are getting buzz in Japan!

Apparently, wasp has been an ingredient in some kinds of rice preparations in Japan for a long time, so making cookies with the winged creatures didn't seem like that big a leap.

And - yes! - the wasp cookies are being touted for their protein content...

But my tongue is probably barbed enough ... I expect I'll be sticking to sushi for my exotic protein...
