Last Sunday, we brought you a story about an increasing number of people who are skipping their class reunions in favor of keeping up with former classmates on Facebook. We also spoke with Chef Barton Seaver about his new cookbook, For Cod and Country. Host Liane Hansen reads listener's e-mails and Web comments.

LIANE HANSEN, Host:

Last Sunday, we brought you a story about an increasing number of people who are skipping their class reunions in favor of keeping up with former classmates on Facebook. After hearing it, Carol Herschleb of Nevada City, California, wrote us to say: What could be more enjoyable, more meaningful, more human than seeing your friends in person, read their faces, listen to their voices and inflections, catch up on news, have an argument, share a meal - all things that you can do at a class reunion in person.

HANSEN: Last week, we spoke with Chef Barton Seaver about his new cookbook, "For Cod and Country." It's focused on sustainable seafood. During our conversation, Seaver said farm-raised fish can be an ocean-friendly substitute.
