10 Journalism Brands Where You Find Real Facts Rather Than Alternative Facts

“What’s your advice and do you have an opinion on where to find some form of truth in our media today?”

multiple tomato summers

As tomato sandwich season starts to arrive, I miss “tomato woman” who used to live near me. She had a self-service table in her front yard with sign, scale, cash box, and bags. $1/pound (.45kg). What a steal.
 
I often used the self-service, though it was better when she was home, as she would toss in lots of extra tomatoes and fresh jalapeños making the price/pound even lower.
 
She was a Spanish speaker, too, so I got free practice when she was home.
 
After several summers of good eatin’ and fun shooting the breeze with her, the house was empty one day. I’m hoping it was for reasons she/they wanted. I ate SO MANY of those juicy tomatoes, plus a lot of white bread and mayo.

— Guadalajara, Mexico
— Bologna, Italy
— Oz Campground, Unadilla, Georgia, USA
