"Local" is the new organic

Interesting article on organic farming and small-scale farms from the Christian review Books & Culture.

Of course, it's nothing of relevance to those who see efficiency and low prices as the only important things in matters economic.

I'm not interested in paying an extra 30% for my produce so that Old MacDonald's kids can develop a strong work ethic.
BTW, Super Walmart is running a special on zucchini this week (5 for a dollar).

You get what you pay for, Dan.

Each Wal-Mart store should reflect the values of its customers and support the vision they hold for their community.

You bet Sammy, and I value falling prices and envision supply chain perfection.
RIP, you've earned it!

Sam: unintended consequences, buddy.

Dan: keep drinking the kool-aid.
