In an article that caused a furor long before its publication, a magazine has accused the Body Shop of trying to sell moldy eye gel, fabricating the exotic origins of some toiletries and other ethical lapses. An early draft of the article published Thursday in Business Ethics magazine recently led a U.S. ethical investment fund to unload 50,000 shares of the British-based company. Speculation about the accusations has led company stock to plunge in Britain.

The Food and Drug Administration released long-awaited documents Dec. 21 on genetically modified salmon: an assessment of the fish's potential environmental effects and a preliminary “ finding of no significant impact ” of the fish on the environment. This brings AquAdvantage salmon -- Atlantic salmon that has been modified with a growth hormone gene from chinook salmon so that it reaches maturity faster -- a significant step closer to FDA approval.   Astute readers will notice that the recently released documents are dated May 4. So why were they just released Dec. 21 -- seven months later?

"Blacks typically have a more dense skeleton, long arms and relatively longer legs. Blacks tend to have slender . . . hips. They tend to have proportionally less fat on their extremities." If Jimmy (The Goofy Greek) Snyder had said that when he was an employee of CBS Sports, he would have been fired. Well, actually, he did say it--sort of, in his own bumbling way--and he was fired. But Robert Malina will not be fired from the University of Texas for saying it on NBC. That's because he's a white academic and anthropologist, not a white sportscaster with a log for a tongue who lost his job because of a double standard.

When Anchee Min left her native China in 1984 for the United States, her grasp of English was, well, awful. Cleverly, she had avoided speaking much English to get a visa (consular officials thought she was just determined) and a letter of acceptance from the Art Institute of Chicago (they liked her paintings). But when she stepped off a plane from Shanghai in Seattle and her response to any question customs officials had was "thank you," they told her she would have to go back to China.
