Does rice have to go in the fridge?

jessicheese | May 19, 200906:06 AM     63

OK, so I recently had a conversation where the other person stated that leftover rice never has to go in the fridge. They had heard this from a sushi chef who stated that it can sit out (covered) at room temperature for up to 3 days and that it would keep it from getting hard and dry, like it does in the fridge.

I'm curious if anyone has ever heard this. I like the concept, but think that the moisture would breed bacteria.... any thoughts?
