Sorry Charlie

In the process of grading the essay I became aware of this class action lawsuit against StarKist, which found they had too little tuna in their cans and too much water.  Presumably, a deliberate act of this sort is done expecting to get away with it, not to get caught.  On this one water is cheap, tuna expensive.  So in this fraud StarKist was clearly lowering its costs to an unsuspecting public.

  1. It occurred to me that students in the class might not have heard of Charlie the Tuna, the StarKist mascot. That's the reference in the title to the post.
