Yep. Fried Carp. Better'n catfish. Kelley's Fish House, Blair, Nebraska. 3 things on the menu -- all fried of course -- carp, catfish, alaskan walleye. "what do y'all catch?", I asked. "carp."
They score the meat so it fries deep and increases the surface area to fry ratio. It's a little earthy and bony. 3 big slabs of it in my basket and probably 100 slabs on tables in the dining room while I was eating.

While working on an assignment in Tulelake, Ca photographing Japanese Americans on a pilgrimmage to the site of a WWII internment camp I had the great fortune to meet Jimmy Miriktani, who was imprisoned there from 1946-48. There is an excellent film -- The Cats of Mirikatani -- that is about him, his art, and his dealing with his imprisonment. He is a great REAL character -- definitely a film to see.

We've been on the road in northern California and southern Oregon working on a 4 part editorial project that will also take us to Iowa, NYC, and Ohio. While out west we took part of a day before hitting the road to see some sights and we headed off to Crater Lake, Oregon. WOW! This is one of the most incredible landscapes I've ever seen anywhere.
