True story: During the 2008 campaign, then-candidate Barack Obama came to Portland Ore., and drew more than 100,000 people to a rally. One conservative commentator suggested that the crowds really came out for the free concert that preceded Obama's speech ... by a rather popular local band called The Decemberists. And really, who can say?
The Decemberists' name was inspired by a short-lived rebellion in the Russian army in the 1820s against the chosen successor to the czar.

A look at the arguments for and against the practice known as entomophagy, and the cultural and environmental issues involved.
