​In the context of the Winter Blows Swap Meet Bike Show, an end-of-January event held at scenic Fairmount Park in Collinsville, Michael Pollan's Rule #31, "Eat wild foods when you can," conjures up a scary karaoke image of our favorite food fascist in black leather hip-huggers, belting out Steppenwolf's Easy Rider anthem, "Born to Be Wild." Of course, "wild" means something different to the Omnivore than it does to most bikers.
