The kid’s got it….

It starts here: Getting kids to eat crap is good for business & bad for them, bad for the earth, and bad for the future. Here’s an 11-year-old who has more sense than the FDA folks who allow what you eat. He’s the real deal – listen. Please listen. (BTW, Bill Keener in the five minute talk is my cousin’s husband – great farm in Tennessee.)

We have a great food program at our public schools here on San Juan Island. We have great farms, and healthy food. This kid from Asheville gets it…and points to a future that will work.

    What a wonderful young guy.

  2. A coincidence? Just finished reading Gail Collins column on the crazy people running for office. Makes one feel that there is no one left with integrity who will act politically. Then you see this kid and you want to cry, thinking maybe there still is hope.
