Adapted from Robert Whitcomb's "Digital Diary,'' in GoLocal24.com:
I have much enjoyed eating grilled octopus. But after reading Sy Montgomery’s book The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness no more.
Ms. Montgomery, after having done research at the New England Aquarium, in Boston, and elsewhere, convincingly describes the octopus as a very complex, intelligent and emotional creature and one that makes sensitive connections with humans. I think I’ll start confining my seafood consumption to clams, mussels and oysters.
